The Opportunity: 

Booz Allen is seeking an experienced, forward-thinking systems engineer to help our clients transform their satellite mission management systems to meet the challenges of the future. Satellite mission management is changing as space architectures transform from small numbers of highly complex satellites to large, integrated, and proliferated architectures that require fundamental new ways of transforming customer needs into mission value through satellite tasking, planning, scheduling, collection, and processing. Automation, artificial intelligence and machine learning, and hybrid cloud, and edge computing approaches will all play a role in meeting the future mission management challenge. Booz Allen needs your experience and expertise to build our business and support our clients to make this future a reality.

You will engage with clients and industry partners to keep the team informed about the development of future space architectures, and develop white papers, demonstrations, and proposals for next-generation mission management systems to continue expanding our business and mission impact. As our business grows, you will take on key systems engineering roles on one or more contracts to ensure successful delivery of new mission management systems to our clients.
