Job Description:

Starlink believes in providing fast, reliable internet to serve populations with little or no connectivity. We design, build, and launch the world’s largest constellation of satellites, enabling us to operate a global internet network unbounded by traditional ground infrastructure limitations. In addition to direct-to-consumer service, Starlink is also developing high-speed internet for commercial and private aircraft. As an certification engineer, you will be responsible for driving projects with the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration). You will own the certification process, milestones, and documentation needed to certify Starlink for flight and will work closely with design and manufacturing teams to ensure regulatory compliance throughout the hardware design cycle.

  • Act as the subject matter expert on the FAA certification process and how it integrates with SpaceX internal tools and processes
  • Drive certification process improvements to reduce overhead and improve schedules for future certification applications
  • Manage multiple concurrent certification efforts and provide regular updates on schedule and deliverables to senior management
  • Work with hardware owners to ensure regulatory compliance early in the design cycle

Job Requirements:

  • Demonstrated ability to produce documentation deliverables on a tight timeline
  • Extremely strong verbal and written communication skills
  • Hardware ownership for mechanical or electrical systems through entire lifecycle (design, qualification, manufacturing, and launch)
  • Previous ownership of an aerospace certification from application to FAA acceptance

Qualification & Experience:

  • Experience with DO-160 environmental testing, aircraft ground testing, aircraft flight testing
  • Understanding of failure modes of complex mechanical and electrical systems
  • Extremely strong proficiency with Microsoft Word as a tool to produce and manage large documents
  • 2+ years of experience with FAA certification
  • Bachelor’s degree in an engineering, math, or physics discipline
  • 1+ years of experience in mechanical or electrical product design, testing, or manufacturing (internship or extracurricular experience is applicable)
