At Blue Origin, we envision millions of people living and working in space for the benefit of Earth. We’re working to develop reusable, safe, and low-cost space vehicles and systems within a culture of safety, collaboration, and inclusion. Join our diverse team of problem solvers as we add new chapters to the history of spaceflight!  

This role is part of the Blue Origin Engines business unit, where our focus is the design, development, manufacturing and testing of engines and propulsion systems. Built for multiple uses, our family of engines is powering the next generation of rockets for commercial, civil, national security and human spaceflight.

As part of a hardworking team of diverse engineers, you will use data to identify factors that drive engine reliability and support initiatives to drive improvements in production, test, and flight reliability.

We are seeking a self-motivated and highly organized individual who can work with minimal guidance and coordinate teams in the successful execution of system safety and reliability activities! This position will directly impact the history of space exploration and will require your dedicated commitment and detailed attention towards safe and repeatable spaceflight!

Responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Identify reliability requirements
  • Support early trade studies to drive design-for-reliability into the engine control system avionics architecture in order to achieve reliability requirements
  • Develop requirements and design solutions to implement fault tolerance into the engine control system avionics architecture
  • Support EEE part selection
  • Develop test requirements that enable to identification of failure modes to be mitigated through re-design, as well as test requirements that demonstrate reliability goals/requirements
  • Perform reliability analysis to identify design weaknesses and inform design improvements, such as Failure Modes and Effects Analysis or physics-of-failure assessments

Minimum Qualifications:

  • BS in aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, materials engineering, computer science, physics, or related technical discipline
  • Proven track record of building trust and effective working relationships that improve team performance, deliver results, and contribute to a culture of inclusion
  • 5+ years of experience in system development, integration, or testing of aerospace products or complex electromechanical systems
  • 2+ years of RAMS experience of either liquid rocket engines or avionics for space, or 4+ years of system safety, reliability, or RAMS engineering experience in any industry
  • Experience with reliability engineering for electrical components and circuit card assemblies
  • Knowledge of systems engineering practices throughout the product lifecycle
  • Experience in design, development, integration, or testing – preferably with aerospace hardware or sophisticated technical systems
  • Experience performing system safety and reliability analyses, such as: Functional Hazard Assessments (FHA), Failure Mode, Effects, and Criticality Analysis (FMECA), Fault Tree Analysis (FTA), Reliability Block Diagrams (RBDs)
  • Experience with Weibull analysis and parameter estimation, stress-strength interference analyses, probability distribution estimation, reliability growth modeling, and probabilistic risk analysis
  • Experience working with reliability analysis and reliability modeling on a software such as Minitab/Matlab/Saphire/ Reliasoft/ Ansys Sherlock
  • Working understanding of configuration management principles and practices
  • Strong written and verbal communication and presentation skills
  • Must be a U.S. citizen or national, U.S. permanent resident (current Green Card holder), or lawfully admitted into the U.S. as a refugee or granted asylum


Preferred Qualifications:

  • PCBA manufacturing and/or avionics design experience
  • Experience performing worst-case-analysis (WCA), sneak circuit analysis, Fault-detection, Fault-Isolation and Recovery (FDIR) assessments
  • Proven technical expertise with liquid rocket engines and test facilities
  • Experience integrating sophisticated subsystems into a spacecraft, launch vehicle, or test facility
  • Experience implementing, customizing or improving system safety policy and procedure for a development engineering environment and transitioning products to operation and production
  • Deep understanding of principles and practices for systems engineering
  • Proven experience with reliability/life test design (failure modes discovery, life demonstration, and screening)
  • Experience with failure reporting and corrective action systems (FRACAS)
  • Experience using scripting languages such as VBA and Python to automate processes and analyses
  • Experience with systems engineering tools such as DOORS, DNG, or similar
  • Experience in reading/viewing mechanical drawings and CAD models in typical CAD softwares such as CreoView/NX.
