Position summary

The Company

Astra's mission is to improve life on Earth from space by creating a healthier and more connected planet. Astra delivered its first commercial payload into Earth orbit in 2021, making it the fastest company in history to reach this milestone, just five years after being founded in 2016. By achieving monthly, weekly, then daily launches, we'll create the infrastructure services our customers need in space to build a healthier and more connected planet. If you're excited by a sense of possibility, the chance to innovate, and make a difference here on Earth, we think you should work here too.

The Team

We’re looking for a talented and curious engineer to join our Avionics Hardware team to help build the electronics for both rocket and spacecraft. You’ll get to own the design, component selection, schematic capture, layout, first article bring-up, production, and testing of prototypes and flight hardware for rocket/spacecraft subsystems. The job will involve working with multi-disciplinary teams and leaders for end-to-end development of state-of-the-art avionics components, including board design, system integration, and testing. In addition, there will be time allocated to supporting Mission Operations (including mission control console time).

The Opportunity

A successful person for this job will be dynamic, self-starting, who thrives in an entrepreneurial environment, and has the potential to become significant contributors to the overall direction and success of our business.

As the ideal person for the job, not only do you know your way around schematic and layout software, but also a rack of test equipment and a soldering iron.
