Electrical Engineer

The Challenge:

What if you could use your engineering skills to transform the DoD? As an electrical engineer, you understand the power behind complex systems. That knowledge is key when it comes to conducting basic and applied research and development for the fabrication of novel prototype weapon systems. We’re looking for an electrical engineer who can use their skills to develop alternative and augmentative solutions for our warfighters in the US Military.

Our team conducts full life cycle efforts across the system development, including basic research and applied electrical engineering and experimental testing and prototype fabrication. That’s why we need you, an electrical engineer, who specializes in hardware, including circuits, capacitors, and control boards to help us design and develop Directed Energy Weapons (DEWs) for our military personnel. You’ll test and analyze electronic equipment, develop and maintain data recovery capabilities for systems, and a myriad of other electronics-related duties to impact how we engage enemy combatants and deter those who aim to cause harm to our warfighters. This is a chance to use your electrical engineering skills while gaining experience in component development, subsystem architecture, dynamic and static test and evaluation events, radio frequency data capture and analysis, and prototype development and gaining insights into other related disciplines like systems engineering, mechanical engineering, physics, and data analytics. Join us and take on exciting challenges in Directed Energy for the DoD as we change the landscape and options for the next-generation battlefield.

Empower change with us.
