Job Details

Job ID: 10951

New ideas are all around us, but only a few will change the world. That's our focus at JPL. We ask the biggest questions, then search the universe for answers-literally. We build upon ideas that have guided generations, then share our discoveries to inspire generations to come. Your mission-your opportunity-is to seek out the answers that bring us one step closer. If you're driven to discover, create, and inspire something that lasts a lifetime and beyond, you're ready for JPL.

Located in Pasadena, California, JPL has a campus-like environment situated on 177 acres in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains and offers a work environment unlike any other: we inspire passion, foster innovation, build collaboration, and reward excellence.


We have an exciting opportunity for an Electronics Engineer to join the Circuit Reliability Analysis Group (5139). As a Circuit Reliability Engineer, you will fully participate in the reliability effort of highly complex and critical systems, electronic subsystems, and electro-mechanical devices, and inform senior project and line management of reliability risks. Your work will focus on improving JPL designs, verifying the designs will meet mission requirements, and identifying risks to mission success. You will be responsible for the following:

  • Verifying the reliability of systems, subsystems, and assemblies down to the circuit and component level.
  • The performance and documentation of design verification analyses and the independent review of these analyses.
  • Working with design organizations to troubleshoot and resolve technical issues, supporting the closure of anomaly reports.
  • Making and evaluating technical trade-offs with regard to risk, cost, and schedule for a project.
  • Working closely with Project Reliability (5131) staff to support coordination of reliability tasks, overseeing the work of contract labor support personnel, and representing JPL while interfacing with customers to support successful reliability assurance activities for a project.
  • Preparing, negotiating, and implementing detailed planning templates in support of performing circuit reliability analyses while adhering to projects schedules and budgets.


    • Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering, or related technical discipline with typically a minimum of 6 years of related experience; master's degree in similar disciplines with a minimum of 4 years of related experience; or PhD in similar disciplines with a minimum of 2 years of related experience.
    • Wide-ranging experience and advanced knowledge in circuit design and/or analyses including, but not limited to electronic parts-stress analysis (EPSA), worst-case circuit analysis (WCA), power supply transient analysis (PSTA), single-event effects analysis (SEEA), failure modes, effects, and criticality analysis (FMECA), and Ground Support Equipment Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (GSE FMEA).
    • Detailed knowledge and expertise of one, or more, of the following circuit technologies: analog, digital, mixed signal, or RF.
    • Experience applying advanced principles, theories and concepts in reliable circuit, subsystem, and systems design.
    • Ability to make good technical judgements in a fast paced environment without risking product quality.
    • Ability to fully support a technical lead and subject matter experts on multidisciplinary teams and occasionally lead those teams.
    • Ability to implement with a high degree of independence and autonomy.
    • Ability to lead a task and manage its execution.
    • Experience presenting work in management and/or design reviews.
    • Excellent interpersonal, verbal, and written communication skills.

      Desired Qualifications:

      • Strong design or analysis experience in Analog Circuitry or Power Supply design.
      • Experience with system reliability concepts and tools.
      • Experience supporting the creation of reliable cost estimation, tracking cost and schedule for work performed, technical risk assessment, and reliability assurance-related anomaly report resolution.
      • Currently hold or be able to successfully obtain a security clearance at the TS/SCI level. (SSBI w/poly)
