Mechanical and Electrical engineers are pioneers, and few have explored new frontiers like JPL. If you want to be part of the planet’s greatest engineering challenges, JPL is the place to be.

Electrical Engineers at JPL play a central role in every project, large and small. Given the sheer scope and aspirations of our work, you’re always at the forefront of “building the impossible."

Our Electrical Engineers handle a remarkable variety of challenges, including payload electronics, data-handling subsystems, motor control electronics & test equipment, and avionics & flight subsystems. We develop, design, engineer, fabricate, package, and analyze everything. Every project is part of something remarkable, and you always play a key role.

What set JPL apart for me is that even with such high technical excellence, the work-life balance for employees was evident.

JPL has been at the center of the most complex, collaborative engineering triumphs in human history. That success comes from our world-renowned experts in the field of Systems Engineering.

Our innovations in ultra-reliable robotic and human-robotic space exploration would be impossible without Systems Engineering & Formulation. JPL Systems Engineers serve the entirety of the Lab, from formulation of mission concepts through development, testing, and launch. Our model-based engineering drives the next innovations in systems and software that will support complex missions yet to come.

There’s a lot to love. I believe in the work we do. We all share a common goal. We’ve assembled not only great minds, but also really great personalities and characters.

Our Robotics Engineers routinely do what few on earth—or anywhere else, for that matter—have ever achieved. Everyday challenges include autonomous processing and precise movements in harsh conditions, at distances ranging from nanometers to millions of miles.

Exploration from our home planet to our solar system and beyond is the supreme test of Autonomous Systems and Robotics. Our teams design and build hardware and software to land, perform tasks, and process results. To do it, we need experts in avionics, power electronics, rover mobility, new spacecraft architectures, guidance & control algorithms, sensors, and actuators. Our work is many things, but never, ever boring.

You ask kindergarteners: Who likes robots? Who likes space? They go crazy. Wow, I get to do both of those.
