About the job Mission Ops Engineer

Interested in building a new generation of GNSS satellites at the speed of new space?

GNSS (GPS) creates upwards of $500B in economic value in the US every year, supporting everything from consumer applications, to transportation systems, to time sync for critical infrastructure. As these industries progress towards autonomy the performance and security demands of their navigation systems are increasing beyond what GNSS can support, leaving a need for a cost-effective global solution.

Using lessons we've learned at places like SpaceX and Blue Origin, Xona is constructing a modern satellite network at the rapid pace of the new space industry leveraging the recent wave of technology and regulatory advancements. Building on our patent pending small satellite architecture, we are developing a robust and accurate service that is an independent alternative to GNSS rather than a correction, solving the longstanding challenge of obtaining a reliable high accuracy solution from the very fragile GNSS signals. Our satellite system will provide the first ever high-accuracy global navigation and timing services with the security and resilience modern applications need to operate safely at scale.

At Xona you will develop state-of-the-art hardware and software solutions to solve real problems that can have a massive world impact. Xona is driven by the mission to enable modern devices to operate safely in any environment, anywhere on Earth, and unlock the true potential of the age of autonomy.

We're looking for people who want to help us get ready to fly our satellites, and then fly them! As a mission operations engineer you'll work hand-in-hand with the hardware team to develop the procedures to safely and reliable operate the satellites once they are on orbit. You will also play a large role in the development of the satellite operations system and architecture.

Desired Qualification (not all are expected)

  • Experience operating satellites or designing satellite operation procedures
  • Strong familiarity with satellites and satellite systems
  • Experience building intuitive software and automation tools
  • Understanding of telemetry analysis and anomaly investigation processes

Required Qualifications:

  • Highly proficient in MATLAB, Python, or a similar scripting language.
  • To comply with U.S. Government space technology export regulations, applicant must be a U.S. citizen, lawful permanent resident of the United States (i.e. Green Card holder), or other protected individual as defined by 8 U.S.C. 1324b(a)(3).
