        • Clear communication, planning, prioritization, and management skills among team members and subgroups, both within and outside of the company
        • Ability to multitask and pivot as needed within a fast-paced, small team

          Preferred Experience:
          • Spacecraft Launch and Early orbit support experience
          • Spacecraft ground system evaluation and testing experience
