Assembly Integration and Testing Engineer - Mechanical
Pixxel is a space data company building a health monitor for our planet. We are doing that by deploying a constellation of some of the world's most advanced earth imaging satellites in lower earth orbit and an analytics platform (on ground) with tools that enable easy application of this data across a multitude of sectors. Our fully deployed constellation will be capable of beaming down daily imagery of any place on earth. This role will contribute towards multiple aspects of Mechanical assembly integration and testing of Pixxel's satellite constellation and will be part of our production team.
If you love working at the cutting edge of technology and want to contribute towards making the world a better place by bringing down the benefits of space down to earth, this is the place for you.
- As a part of Pixxel’s Production Team, you will be responsible for overseeing and executing satellite assembly, integration and testing processes along with a team of technicians and engineers. At a given time, you will be given a responsibility of production of a set of Pixxel satellites.
- You will be drafting step by step mechanical AIT procedures/assembly checklist for the technicians to implement, based on the designs and input of the Engineering Team.
- You will be responsible to check and validate each step of the AIT procedures after being implemented by the technicians on the shop floor.
- You will be responsible for overseeing all environmental testing processes for the satellite such as Thermal tests, vibration tests, motion simulators etc.
- You will be working with the production management team to plan out the satellite production process, on a day to day basis.
- You will be responsible for troubleshooting any issues that arise during the satellite AIT.
- You will be responsible in documenting the progress in satellite AIT process and the observations during the inspection and validation of the procedures, post implementation, in an enterprise software or via manual record entry.
- You will be responsible for proper handling, storage and keeping a track of all the satellite components on the shop floor, after handover from the Inventory Manager.
- Bachelor/Master in Mechanical Engineering or related discipline.
