Modernization Systems Architect

The Challenge:

Are you looking for an opportunity to combine your technical skills with big picture thinking to make an impact in the Army’s modernization process? You understand your customer’s environment and how to develop the right systems for their mission. Your ability to translate real-world needs into technical specifications, makes you an integral part of delivering a customer focused engineering solution.

As an Army Modernization Systems (SoS) Architect on our team, you have the chance to shape the Army Futures Command by leading a System of Systems (SoS) engineering effort. You’ll work with a newly created 4-star command chartered to re-vamp and re-energize the Army’s ability to quickly and efficiently field combat capabilities. The Army has assigned their best and brightest, both military and civilian, to be these change agents. Everything about Futures Command is designed for free-thinking, non-traditional ideations from the location in the non-military tech-hub of Austin, TX to the Google-like environment of open and airy office space down to the total lack of military uniforms. But the single biggest innovation focuses on breaking traditional barriers that hinder and delay the fielding of capabilities. Your customer will trust you to not only design and develop these systems, but also evolve them with advanced technology solutions. On our team, you’ll be able to serve as a Army Modernization Systems (SoS) Architect, to support the development of SoS architecture products, processes, and policy. You’ll develop system interface architectures and standards and incorporate Model-Based Systems Engineering as member of an Integrated Product Team (IPT). You’ll analyze integrated system and capability schedules for accuracy, completeness, and feasibility and contribute to Integrated Master Schedule (IMS) builds. You’ll identify cross-cutting technical and programmatic risks across organizational boundaries and constituent systems. Join our team and create the future of modernization efforts in the Army.
