    Job Description

    Description:The coolest jobs on this planet... or any other... are with Lockheed Martin Space.

    At the dawn of a new space age, Lockheed Martin is a pioneer, partner, innovator and builder. Our outstanding men and women are on a mission to make a difference in the world and every single day we use our unique skills, talents and experiences to craft and build solutions to some of the world's hardest engineering problems. Do you want to join a culture that encourages employees to envision the impossible, perform with perfection and build incredible products? We provide the resources, inspiration and focus-if you have the passion and courage to dream big, then we want to build a better tomorrow with you.

    As a valued member of the Loads & Dynamics team you will perform structural dynamic analysis for missile and spacecraft flight hardware. You will be working in a multi-disciplined team environment to help with structural design trades, preliminary and detailed design/analysis activity and performance and maintenance assessments of operational systems. There will be opportunity to support dynamic test definitions, requirements development, test monitoring, data reduction, and comparison to analysis efforts. We will interface as a team with outside organizations to acquire information necessary to complete the analysis.

    Responsibilities include:

    • Producing/maintaining structural dynamic models generated from both in-house and commercially available software codes, that simulate mechanical loading conditions, mechanism deployment motions, dynamic structural response behavior and missile segment and spacecraft separation events.
    • Performing load development (primary structure and component level), shock and vibration environments determination and component and system level testing and data evaluation.
    • Support test plan preparation; static, separation dynamics, vibration, modal and shock test execution, and post-test reports.
    • Provide review, interpretation, flow down, and start up of program requirements, and plan tasks and monitor budget and schedule to reduce cost and cycle time.
    • Support peer and customer reviews by communicating analysis data to engineering teams, customer technical representatives and Program Office personnel at technical interchange meetings and design reviews.
    • Mentoring opportunities to help grow our team (this is an emerging technical lead position).

    To promote the sharing of ideas, Lockheed Martin cultivates an inclusive work environment that inspires differences and big-picture thinking.
