We are seeking a Propulsion SystemEngineer to join our Propulsion Design team in Centennial, Colorado.You will be part of an exciting, fast-paced, operational rocket programthat sets the bar for space launch. The position will report to the PropulsionSystem Design Leader in charge of Vulcan Booster Propulsion Systems. ThePropulsion System Design Engineer-RS2 will provide strength analysis supportand issue resolutions for the Propulsion fluids systems (cryogenic,non-cryogenic, hydraulics and pneumatics). The Propulsion System DesignEngineer-RS2 will perform strength analysis of various propulsion systems tosatisfy overall propulsion systems requirements.The Propulsion System Design Engineer performs analysis tasks in support ofthe Vulcan Centaur systems to increase margins, performance, or reducecosts for the ULA rocket systems. The RS2 design engineer is supported by thebroader experienced propulsion design team to ensure successful results. Theengineer creates and optimizes the analysis solutions along with theassociated engineering drawings, assembly, and testing requirements. Someelements of the rocket propulsion system are produced by contracted suppliers(e.g. valves, engines, feed lines, umbilical disconnects). In thesecases, the RS2 engineer often works with these suppliers of propulsionhardware in their development and manufacture. Travel for RS2 engineers tocomponent suppliers, test sites for product evaluation, rocket finalassembly factory, and the launch site occurs as needed to ensure the productunder development is appropriately supported over the maturation life cycleand to develop strong working relationships in the broader team. Travel forRS2 propulsion design engineers can vary based on specific tasks assigned,however on average is 2-4 trips per year, less than a work week each induration, and includes travel to the rocket final assembly factory.At United Launch Alliance, it really is rocket science!Are you interested in joining America's most experienced team of rocketscientist?
