Join a team recognized for leadership, innovation and diversity

Join a team that designs, develops, and integrates highly complex systems for space within Honeywell Aerospace. As an Optical Assembly, Integration and Test Engineer you will be part of a team that specializes in the design, development, and manufacturing of novel, state-of-the-art optical instruments for the military, space, and commercial applications, including Earth observation, atmospheric monitoring, space situational awareness, space science, and optical communications. You will be integral in creating system solutions that meet the evolving needs of our customers and work in a small cross-functional team of Mechanical, Optical, and Systems engineers collaborating on the design, development, and implementation of space science instruments, technology, and missions.  A broad spectrum of optical and optomechanical elements, such as mirrors and mounts, to critical subsystems such as fore optics and detector assembly, and to full instruments with electronics and mechanisms will need to be designed, assembled, integrated, and tested.


  • Participate as a key team member in the development of unique mechanical concepts for optics, optical mount, flexures, and structures with critical constraints that meet the demanding requirements of space applications. 
  • Support the development, build and test of hardware that is driven towards lower cost and higher volumes.
  • Develop strategies and methods to be able to efficiently and quickly build and test systems and components that require critically precise alignment.
  • Define the assembly, integration, and test of complex optical systems and leading the execution of those activities.
  • Use optical test equipment to measure optical performance and optical alignments
  • Perform environmental testing of equipment

    The Honeywell building is a controlled goods program environment. Candidates must be eligible for CGP clearance. 


  • Bachelor’s degree in Engineering or Applied Science
  • 3+ years of experience in an assembly, integration, and test role and supporting hardware design development in an R&D environment


  • Advanced degree in engineering or applied science
  • Energetic and highly organized
  • A strong background in optical instrument design activities, including optical, mechanical, and electrical engineering aspects, and their interactions within complex systems
  • An understanding of optical design and test methods and familiarity with optical design software
  • The ability to work with technical teams with engineers, scientists, and technicians from multiple disciplines
  • Individuals who are self-motivated and able to work with little supervision, who consistently take the initiative to get things done
  • The ability to adapt as dictated by project changes
  • The ability to simultaneously manage a variety of complicated tasks
  • A results-oriented and structured problem-solving approach
  • Clear and concise verbal and written communication skills, with the ability to effectively communicate technical information across different levels of the organization and externally
  • Experience with mechanical design, industrial design, lens design, cleanroom work
  • Passion to develop solutions and troubleshoot problems. 
  • Developing hardware for space, vacuum, and or similar harsh environments.  
  • Environmental testing experience (TVAC, Vibration, Shock).
  • Background in the development of small compact, highly capable optical components. 
  • Developing High-Volume optical production.
  • 3D modeling using CAD tools such as CREO, Solidworks, or NX. 
  • Lens design using tools such as Code V or Zemax
