Job Description:

**This position requires a U.S. person or the ability to obtain an Export Authorization from the appropriate government agency for non-U.S. persons**

Systems Verification Center (SVC) is seeking a technically sound leader, committed to innovative, cost-effective solutions for Electronic systems for remote sensing applications. The candidate provides engineering leadership for development, integration, and verification of complex electronic systems. Duties include technical leadership, verification architecture, advanced verification systems, planning and coordination, assembly, preparation and maintenance; troubleshooting; installation & checkout; software integration; IV&V; test data reduction, and modeling, simulation, and analysis. The candidate is an organized, objective, balanced decision maker, who administers technical reviews; guides engineering; coordinates designs; leads day-to-day operations; and is the engineering authority. The candidate ensures quality engineering work, and collaborates with experts in various disciplines in the integration, test, and evaluation of electrical systems for remote sensing applications.
The individual is passionate about practical and effective application of Systems Engineering to sensor products, and technologies. The role encompasses architectural development of remote sensing systems from an IV&V standpoint, development of T&E strategies and plans leveraging modeling, analyses, simulations, and tests, from qualification to acceptance.

The Electronic Systems CE demonstrates an ability to identify and understand technology risks and defines event driven evaluations of remote sensing systems supporting technical maturation and risk burn-down. The CE applies career experiences to architect T&E events and environments that efficiently and effectively leverage simulations, test beds, and prototypes, to satisfy development, and qualification objectives. The CE is capable of specifying requirements for capital, contract, and government assets to define development environments, System Integration Labs (SILs) and STE needed for execution of programs, production, and key events (e.g. TRR). The CE is a forward thinker, looking to improve efficiency, increase reuse, and drive common solutions. The individual is a recognized advocate and practitioner of robust design practices enabling rapid integration through application of test-centric design. The CE steers requirement flow down and iterative error analyses supporting well-defined test with cost-effective system integration and test environments. The CE implements and drives for test verticality, traceability, and realistic efficient plans & processes moving products through the life cycle.

The candidate possesses career experience and technical acumen in physical architecture product technologies associated with RF or EOIR capabilities including digital/analog/video signal processing, processing algorithms, point and stab, control loop algorithms, search/track and image reconstruction/exploitation algorithms, active/passive thermal control, environmental qualification and screening, troubleshooting, continuous product improvement, and upfront design activities necessary to ensure producible systems.  The CE works with the Business Area Chief Engineer, and functional leaders to ensure SE rigor guides the design for verification. The CE will be responsible for working with staffing plans, determine scope-of-work, generate BOEs, review historical actuals, and provide financials in support of EACs, proposals and Gates.
The ideal candidate has a strong sense of logic, and ability to apply reasoning. The individual is a motivated self-starter, willing to challenge themselves to do better, and continually grow. The person rejects the status quo, and searches for clever and innovative ways to improve the current state by using a solid foundation rooted in the fundamentals of engineering as the basis for improvement. Our organization is accountable for the engineering life cycle of programs, and execution of detailed IV&V plans for Space Systems. Our goal is ensuring successful program execution. Our team welcomes you to join our growing group of talented engineers.
