Since the dawn of the space age, Northrop Grumman has put innovative products and ideas into orbit, around the earth, to the Moon, to Mars, and throughout the solar system. This includes systems engineering, spacecraft design and analysis, manufacturing, integration and test, precision sensors, space instrument design, ground stations development, and innovative technology development. Help shape the future of Space exploration as an integral part of Northrop Grumman in support of the Jet Prolusion Laboratory. Join an organization of Technical Services support to National Security programs, earth science and planetary missions. At Northrop Grumman, we are launching careers into orbit.

The Space Systems Sector, Tactical Space Systems Division is seeking a Reliability Engineer to assist an innovative team at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory to perform engineering on spacecraft systems or subsystems.

This position is located in Pasadena, CA.

Reliability Engineering job responsibilities may include:

  • Develop, coordinate and conduct technical reliability studies and evaluations of engineering design concepts and continues this through the design development.

  • Recommend design or test methods and statistical process control procedures for achieving required levels of product reliability.

  • Compile and analyzes performance reports and process control statistics; investigate and analyze relevant variables potentially affecting product and processes. From this data, calculate probabilities of mission or subsystem success.

  • Ensure that corrective measures meet acceptable reliability standards.

  • Analyze preliminary plans and develop reliability engineering programs to achieve customer and governmental agency reliability objectives.

  • May develop mathematical models to identify units, batches or processes posing excessive failure risks.

  • As necessary, proposes changes in design or formulation to improve system and/or process reliability.

  • May determine units and/or batches requiring environmental testing, and specify minimum number of samples to obtain statistically valid data.

Typical duties:

  • Prepare product reliability plans

  • Establish requirements for and monitor reliability programs

  • Develop reliability trade-off studies

  • Perform or review reliability analyses

  • Assess performance with respect to requirements

  • Evaluate effectiveness of the failure reporting, analysis, and corrective action implementation

  • Prepare reports; support logistic activities and reporting; support system and design teams

  • Establish reliability models and utilize models for systems and subsystems analysis
