We work for the San Jose State University Research Foundation in a partnership with NASA through grant funding. We design, develop, and test a collaborative Mission Assurance System for NASA. We provide a centralized and integrated data source with web services for engineers across NASA and its partners to use to track, approve, link, report, and review mission engineering data.

Why join us?
  • We work at NASA Ames Research Center on the Mission Assurance System

  • We work directly with NASA engineers and Partners on current projects (like the ISS) and future projects (like the next space launch system)!

  • It's a government environment, so laid back, no long work hours, and more flexibility and stability.


Engineering at NASA
Engineering team and processes

Our developers work closely with designers and QA. We are using git and are in the process of moving to the Atlassian platform. For our re-architectured product we use Agile (sprints) and for legacy it's Waterfall but it's being phased out. Usually our updates are done on Fridays.

Technical Challenges

Since we have engineering data that can be very sensitive, it adds a layer of complexity to ensure that users who have approval to view certain types of data can see it, but others cannot.

Projects you might work on
  • We take engineering data across NASA and provide it as an integrated resource for Mission Assurance. Our users use it to track hazards, parts, approvals, launch criteria, etc. There's about 20 separate systems but they share a similar code base.
