D-Orbit is hiring an Assembly-Integration-and-Verification (AIV) systems engineer to join our growing systems engineering team. As an integral part of the group, you will be involved in the design, verification and validation, including launch and on-orbit operations of the various D-Orbit spacecraft platforms. As AIV engineer, your main focus will be on the verification and validation activities, including environmental test campaign and participation to the launch vehicle integration activities at the launch base. Your ultimate objective as AIV systems engineer is to verify ensure your systems, the spacecraft, is compliant vs the applicable requirements and validated against the user needs in the real operative mission.

You will work together with other systems engineers, following the full design and development cycle of the systems product, starting from the preliminary design and the requirements capture, preliminary systems architecture and detailed systems/subsystems design, analysis and trade-off, definition of the verification campaign, test plan and procedures, execution of the tests on first prototypes and final requirements compliance assessment. Particularly you will focus on requirements verification methods and compliance matrixes, verification and validation plan and technology development plan. You will define test specifications/procedures and actively participate in the execution of the verification activities, including reporting and data postprocessing to eventually demonstrate requirement compliance. You will support the flight operations team in the execution of on-orbit validation tests during the real on-orbit mission.

Tasks and Responsibilities:

  • Define and maintain the verification and validation strategy, model philosophy and plan;
  • Define the systems and subsystems verification test plans and procedures;
  • Manage autonomously the systems-level and OBDH s/s functional verifications, including the tests execution on the engineering models/flat-sat;
  • Work within a multidisciplinary team of specialists on the systems and s/s design;
  • Contribute to the systems and subsystems budgeting and integration within the project team;
  • Support systems- and subsystems- requirements capturing & management, with focus on verification;
