Job Details

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.


Are you passionate about evaluating potential approaches and solutions to challenging and exciting problems for space missions? How would you like to be a leading member of JPL's Component Engineering & Assurance Office? This organization is responsible for evaluating all Electrical, Electronic and Electromechanical (EEE) components for reliability related performance; conducts complex and sophisticated scientific experiments or theoretical analyses to determine the physical behavior of parts in a space environment, providing electrical component technical specifications for procurement to ensure compliance with NASA flight engineering requirements.

As a Senior Hybrid Microelectronics Engineer, you will be responsible to:

  • Lead the development, evaluation, selection and approval of advanced hybrid microelectronics from design, construction, quality and reliability perspectives for use in NASA space missions.
  • As a leader and highly qualified subject matter expert, advise project management on highly complex electronic part selections that maximize reliability while considering schedule and cost constraints.
  • Develop engineering specifications and drawings for emerging and complex hybrid components for space applications.
  • Lead technical interface with Mission Assurance Managers, Cognizant Engineers, and part manufacturers.
  • Lead technical surveys and audits of hybrid microelectronics part suppliers.
  • Perform highly complex statistical data analysis and risk assessments on emerging and advanced hybrid microelectronics.
  • Evaluate the manufacturing of emerging and advanced hybrid microelectronics and develop screening methods that effectively reduce risk of use in space applications.
  • Develop an understanding of potential failure mechanisms affecting advanced and emerging hybrid microelectronics and lead failure investigations and reliability assessments.
  • Serve as a vital team member and lead within the group, ensuring part reviews, screening, testing, and procurement requirements meet project milestones.
  • Provide mentorship to junior engineers


    This position requires a Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering, Physics, Materials Science/Engineering, Applied Mathematics or related technical discipline with typically a minimum of 12 years of related experience; a Master's degree in similar disciplines with a minimum of 10 years of related experience; or a PhD in similar disciplines with a minimum of 8 years related experience.

    Other requirements include:

    • Extensive understanding and experience in the selection, procurement, manufacture, use and testing/screening of high reliability, state of the art hybrid microelectronics for space-flight applications.
    • Expert knowledge of circuits, hermetic packaging, and thin and thick film technology.
    • Experience in materials and process of bonding and encapsulating internal specific passive components (resistors, capacitors, magnetics) and semiconductor devices (discrete and IC)
    • Expert knowledge of MIL-STD-883, MIL-STD-1580 and MIL-PRF-38534 and relevant JEDEC specifications and requirements related to electronic parts.
    • Ability to multi-task with an established track record of meeting schedule milestones.
    • Excellent written and oral communication skills.
    • Ability to work well with cross-functional teams with design engineers, line management, and project management.
    • Effective use of common computer tools and databases.

      Preferred qualifications include:

      • Relevant experience in hybrid microelectronics manufacturing or design
      • DC-DC converter hybrid experience
      • Knowledge of NASA parts requirements including EEE-INST-002
      • Experience in reliability modeling (including vibration/stress, thermal cycling, etc.)
      • Refereed Journal Publications
      • Contract Technical Management experience.
      • Demonstrated leadership skills.
      • Ability to obtain security clearance TS/SCI
