Payload Technician

Scout is building a new way to see and operate in space: with a new paradigm of data empowering every satellite to make space safer. We are a rapidly-growing team; we are deploying real solutions to orbit; and our work will transform the face of spaceflight. We are looking for people that bring excitement and energy to our organization, are curious and eager to learn, and want to help drive our programs forward.

As a Payload Technician, you will play a crucial role in the design, development, manufacturing, assembly, integration, test, and operations of our advanced electro-optical payloads for space missions. Your expertise will be essential in ensuring the successful assembly and integration of system-level components within our space payloads. This position is dependent on a contract award.

Responsibilities:

  • Support optical payload design concepts from whiteboard to launch, including development, manufacturing, assembly, integration, test, and operations
  • Lead and design environmental test campaigns
  • Manage subcontractors and suppliers for optical payload systems
  • Perform hands-on lab assembly and testing
  • Generate wiring diagrams

Required Qualifications:

  • Must be eligible to hold a clearance.
  • Ability to understand system- and component-level requirements
  • Experience with optical systems
  • Experience with space systems
  • Hands-on payload assembly, integration, and test expertise
  • Ability to manage subcontractors and validate requirements
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills, with the ability to articulate complex concepts and technical information clearly and concisely.


Preferred Qualifications:

  • Strong background assembly optical space systems
  • Proven track record of support payload development, integration, and operations cycle
  • Understanding of optical, mechanical, and electrical design requirements for a variety of orbits

Don't fulfill all the qualifications listed above? If you still feel like you might be a good fit, please feel free to APPLY ANYWAY. We believe in a well-rounded team, and this sometimes means that someone with out-of-context knowledge can contribute just as well as someone with very explicit alignment with our capabilities needs stated.

Our positions are based in the Reston, Virginia area, with much of our team operating in a hybrid or remote fashion. The position requires you to be local to Reston, Virginia.
