The Opportunity:

Are you looking for an opportunity to combine your technical skills with big picture thinking to make an impact in the DoD? You understand your customer’s environment and how to develop the right systems for their mission. Your ability to interpret capabilities and translate into measurable test criteria to ensure mission needs are met makes you an integral part of delivering a customer-focused engineering solution.

As the Enterprise Risk Lead, you’ll work with the U.S. Space Force to develop and deploy the next generation of resilient Environmental Monitoring (EM) and Tactical Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (TISR) capabilities to deliver critical information to our warfighters to quickly win or even prevent future wars. You’ll work with program leadership to monitor the cost, schedule, and performance of multiple projects, using tools like Microsoft Project and Jira. You will identify and help resolve disconnects across program baselines. The real power of program analysis comes from communication, so you’ll create risk analyses and make recommendations for risk mitigation and management to program leaders. We focus on growing as a team to deliver the best support to our customers, so you’ll have resources for mentoring and learning new skills and tools. This is a chance to directly impact the Space Force while learning how to develop program strategy and eliminate risks across projects. Join us and help make sure our Space Force programs are delivered on time and within budget to equip our space warfighters with the systems they need to win or even prevent future wars.
