CYF-2109-05 / Houston, Texas
CYFOR has a rewarding position supporting the NASA Safety and Mission Assurance Engineering Contract (SMAEC II) at the Johnson Space Center in Houston helping to continue our exploration of space. Come join our team and help us continue the mission of space exploration. The Habitat and Logistics Outpost (HALO) Safety Engineer position provides senior-level engineering support to the Quality and Flight Equipment Division (NT) at NASA’s Johnson Space Center for HALO project design and development activities for NASA’s Gateway Program. The HALO Safety Engineer’s mission for HALO project safety and reliability support is to assure overall design/safety requirements robustness, to assure adequacy of the overall safety assessment (Hazard Reports and FMEA/CILs), and to provide engineering expertise toward the certification efforts that qualify mission functionality as part of NASA’s formal acceptance. Additionally, the HALO Safety Engineer will assist the project with anomaly resolution and will communicate any associated project risks up through the appropriate SMA chain of command. The role will require support of a variety of HALO subsystem teams, as well as support of various HALO boards, panels, working groups, and their associated functions/actions.
Through provision of the assurance function to the HALO project team, the HALO Safety Engineer contributes to design reviews as the subject matter expert for SMA to assure design/safety requirements definition and the selection of appropriate testing/verification methods. As the design matures, the HALO Safety Engineer uses risk assessment tools (e.g., Hazard Analysis, FMEA/CILs, Fault Tree Analysis, Probabilistic Risk Assessment (PRA)) to identify hazards/causes, to ensure adequate controls are in place, and to eliminate/reduce risk as necessary to mitigate overall system effect. While formulating the S&MA response to system design and safety products, the HALO Safety Engineer integrates and coordinates inputs for all necessary NASA stakeholders associated with HALO and its lifecycle. The HALO Safety Engineer also reviews Testing and Verification Plans to assess adequacy of control strategies and assures that compliance with qualification verifications and the NASA acceptance/certification requirements. Throughout the project’s lifecycle, the HALO Safety Engineer provides presentations to S&MA, project, and program management as necessary regarding safety, risk summaries, and dissenting opinions.
The HALO Safety Engineer also provides support toward anomaly investigation and resolution efforts. This may involve the provision of fault trees and historical failure data pertaining to the applicable HALO system. Travel may be required (less than 10%) in support of milestone review activities at the HALO prime contractor’s location in Dulles, Virginia.
Qualified applicants must be a U.S. citizen and obtain and maintain the appropriate security clearance of Public Trust for this position.
