Job Details

Job ID: 10978

New ideas are all around us, but only a few will change the world. That's our focus at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (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.

JPL is a world leader in robotic space exploration located in Pasadena, California. JPL has a casual, 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.


Would you like to leave a legacy of having your name associated with designing spacecraft electronics? Are you interested in developing instructions for electronic assemblies who build spacecraft hardware?

  • Provide instructions for the build, assembly and test procedures to fabricate, assemble and test printed wiring assemblies and cable harnesses.
  • Collaborate with the machine shop regarding delivery of mechanical hardware.
  • Collaborate with JPL's Quality Assurance team to develop solutions to resolve discrepancies and development process improvements.
  • Define and scope tasks and acquire the resources to complete a task on time and on budget.

    Note: As a temporary position, this assignment may last up to 36 months in duration with approvals based on 12 months assignments. However, please note that you are not under any employment contract and your temporary employment status can be terminated at any time with or without notice.
