In anticipation of NASA awarding the Human Landing System (HLS) contract in the near future, Dynetics Space Systems Division is seeking qualified engineers and analysts to support NASA programs including HLS that will put the first woman and next man on the Moon. We are seeking project engineers, systems engineers, test engineers, electrical/mechanical engineers, stress/structural engineers, and analysts to join a diverse team in support of the development of a Human Lander System that will take us back to the surface of the Moon by 2024.
Dynetics is seeking a talented Engine Valves Lead to join a diverse, highly skilled team to create unique solutions for complex problems involving space systems. With offices across the United States engaging in the defense, space, cyber, and commercial fields, Dynetics provides responsive, cost effective intelligence, engineering, and scientific solutions.
The Engine Valves Lead will support the Dynetics Space Systems Division with development of HLS with primary responsibility to design, analyze, procure, test, and integrate valves into the lunar lander liquid rocket engines. The selected individual will serve as lead engineer for a fast-paced task focused on design and development of reliable, high-precision electrical or pneumatically actuated valves for controlling cryogenic propellants at high operating pressures. The individual will work with the interdisciplinary engine team to integrate the valves into the propellant feed system and conduct testing to ensure the hardware meets mass, power, and overall performance requirements. Candidate must be familiar with valve issues at cryogenic conditions. The individual will interface with project managers, mechanical designers, component engineers, test engineers, safety, and quality within Dynetics.IND2
