Principal Electrical Engineer

Reston, VA

Posted: 03/27/2023 Employment Type: Direct Industry: Engineering Job Number: 84018

Job Description

We are looking for highly motivated individuals to join the team as we continue to provide advanced electronics and subsystems to cutting edge satellite programs. Wea are growing, and we have excellent opportunities for professional growth.  Our projects push the performance envelope for both power and digital applications in space.

A Principal Engineer will support a wide range of electrical design projects.  You will contribute to all aspects of the full product lifecycle: from requirements development, through preliminary design, critical design, prototype, test, and production.  A Principal Engineer works independently on their assignments, and often owns responsibility for their own project cost and schedule performance, with minimal oversight from a more senior technical staff member.  A Principal Engineer is often asked to engage directly with customers, and provide guidance to more junior staff.
