Jacobs ESSSA Group offers a partnership in which you can grow personally and professionally with the advantages of strong leadership, competitive compensation, and rewarding career paths. Come join the team whose work is destined to have a long-range effect on future generations!Design, develop, and oversee operations of mechanical, fluid, and structural systems in support of Propulsion Test programs at the Marshall Space Flight Center. These tests will include vehicle systems, sub-systems, and component elements at various test facilities with the Propulsion Test Branch. Candidate will provide engineering design and operational procedures for propellant systems (cryogenic and ambient hydrogen/oxygen, storable liquids/gases, and solid propellants), ancillary support systems (inert gases such as nitrogen, air, and helium, hydraulics), and mechanical systems (thrust reaction, thrust measurement, structural loads). Coordinate with NASA project level customers across organizations to ensure mission success. Work with a large team of engineers and designers to: Review test facility drawings and specifications.Review test requirements.Coordinate with personnel in related tasks to resolve technical problems.Review test implementation plans.Develop and review facility activation and operation procedures.Support anomaly resolution.Review test data.Prepare work requests to authorize fabrication, installation, servicing, cleaning, and activation of hardware for test support systems.Develop procedures for activation and operation of the test facility propellant, ancillary, and mechanical systems.Support activation of the test facility propellant, ancillary, and mechanical systems.Serve as primary and/or back-up test conductor as required.Degree in a Mechanical, Civil, or Aerospace Engineering or related field from an ABET accredited institution. Typically, educational requirements are the equivalent of a Ph.D., a Masters with at least 2 years of experience, or a BS with at least 6 years of experience is required. Additional qualifications include: At least 2 years of specific experience in the design, buildup, operation, and maintenance of propellant, ancillary, and mechanical systems related to the hazards associated with propulsion test.In-depth knowledge of the hazards and required precautions taken for solid propellants and cryogenic liquids and gases (hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and helium).A general understanding and knowledge of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code and B31 Piping codes for design, fabrication, activation, and operation of tubing and piping systems.A general understanding and knowledge of steel construction techniques and practices as specified in the latest edition of Steel Construction's Steel Construction Manual. Additional knowledge in using heavy steel structures for load reaction as well as load application devices (hydraulic cylinders, load cells) is desired.Must be well-versed in standard engineering practices, familiar with current steel design and welding codes and techniques (including welded and bolted connections), knowledgeable about industry-standard, vendor-supplied structural and mechanical components such as structural steel and aluminum shapes, steel fasteners, pipe and pipe components, tubing and fittings, hydraulic cylinders, screw jacks, hoisting equipment, etc. Proof of U.S. Citizenship is required.Jacobs is an Equal Opportunity Employer and employment selection decisions are based on merit, qualifications, and abilities.
