🚀 The Liftero⌝
At Liftero, we are at the forefront of the Industry 4.0 revolution, developing cutting-edge in-space transportation technologies. We believe that the space ecosystem is the next frontier for our civilization, with new opportunities waiting to be unlocked. As part of our mission to build and operate in-space transportation infrastructure, we are developing the reusable orbital transfer vehicle Motus™, an essential building block that can be likened to a truck for ground or an aircraft for air transportation in space.
Despite the lofty goals, we are very human and down-to-earth in our approach to the employee, understanding that achieving stars can be made only with a motivated and dedicated team.
As a Lead Spacecraft System Engineer, you will be responsible for leading and managing the systems engineering team and spearheading Motus spacecraft development. you will play a critical role in the design, development, and operation of the Motus spacecraft system. You will oversee the entire life cycle of the Motus spacecraft system, from initial concept and requirements definition to integration, testing, and operations. Your expertise will be crucial in ensuring spacecraft systems’ successful performance and functionality, including, EPS, communication, structure, thermal, and ADCS.
Spacecraft system requirements and architectures definition and management.
Collaborate with technical teams, including systems engineers, mechanical engineers, electrical engineers, software engineers, and others, to develop system requirements, and architectures.
Technical budgets definition and management. Track changes by technical team supervision.
Subsystems trade-offs analysis and decisions making on its purchasing.
Risk Management: Identify, assess, and mitigate risks associated with the spacecraft system.
Perform failure mode and effects analysis (FMEA), and reliability analysis.
Develop and review system specifications, interface control documents, and other system engineering artifacts.
