Job Description:

United Launch Alliance is hiring! We are seeking an Integrated Simulation Software and Test Architect-RS 5 to join our team in Decatur, AL.

RS = Rocket Scientist

At ULA, it really is rocket science!

Are you interested in joining America's most experienced team of rocket scientists? Do you have what it takes to be a part of the most reliable rocket launch team - and soon the team to return humans to space from American soil? ULA is America's #1 space launch provider with 100% mission success on over 100 consecutive launches. Our vision is to Save Lives, Explore the Universe and Connect the World.

Come be a part of the world's best rocket launch team! ULA is working on solutions that will change how we think about space flight. Join our highly talented team and tackle the next generation of aerospace software development.

As a Software Architect you will continuously explore alternative solutions, observe market needs, lead planning & definition of high-level solutions, and work within the economic framework. You will be advising and representing multiple Agile development teams alongside their respective Product Owners and Scrum Masters. You will drive a shared technical and architectural vision for the team to execute to success while continuously evaluating and validating technical assumptions and alternatives. You will maintain clear understanding of subsystems and interfaces in your teams' implementation, and exhibit business acumen while collaborating with stakeholders, teams, customers, and suppliers.

This position will be directly responsible for developing a multi-tiered simulation and testbed framework to verify and validate Flight Control Subsystem software embedded applications with hard real-time requirements. This position spans the full test pyramid starting with unit testing, through component and off-target emulation testing, and ending with full real-time hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) system integration testing. The ideal candidate has experience architecting HWIL integrated test environments encompassing multiple Flight computers under test, 6-DOF Simulators, Launch Vehicle and Spacecraft Emulators and Flight Computer Emulators. The Architect will devise strategies on how to best evolve existing test, emulation and simulation capabilities to enable re-use across multiple test tiers creating a continuous test pipeline for our next generation Flight Computer. Responsibilities include forming an architectural roadmap, leading/directing architectural trade studies to support key decision points, collaborating with adjacent agile teams to produce robust integrated solutions, establishing key technical performance measurements, and providing guidance to multiple agile teams to implement required operational and enabling capabilities.

Your role is responsible for promoting the implementation of modern software design principles and concepts, resolving architectural software problems, and providing solutions which are innovative and ingenious.
Joining ULA's Software Engineering team will give you the opportunity to take on unique and mission-critical responsibilities while allowing you to shape your own career path and drive change.

Establishes the basic structure of the system, defining the essential core design features and elements that provide the framework for all that follows, and are the hardest to change later. The systems architect provides the architects view of the users' vision for what the system needs to be and do, and the paths along which it must be able to evolve, and strives to maintain the integrity of that vision as it evolves during detailed design and implementation. Performs technical planning, system integration, verification and validation, cost and risk, and supportability and effectiveness analyses for total systems. Analyses are performed at all levels of total system product to include: concept, design, fabrication, test, installation, operation, maintenance and disposal. Ensures the logical and systematic conversion of customer or product requirements into total systems solutions that acknowledge technical, schedule, and cost constraints. Performs functional analysis, timeline analysis, detail trade studies, requirements allocation and interface definition studies to translate customer requirements into hardware and software specifications.
