Remote Sensing Systems Engineer, Lead

The Challenge:

Are you looking for an opportunity to combine your technical skills with big picture thinking to make an impact in the Aerospace industry? 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 a leader in systems engineering, we’re looking for you to solve complex challenges and help sustain space-based remote sensing and Intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) systems and missions by leading the architecture, engineering, integration, testing, and deployment. Your customer will trust you to not only design and develop these systems, but also evolve them with advanced technology solutions. Share your expertise through leadership and mentoring, while broadening your skillset into areas like remote sensing technologies. Grow your skills by merging Systems Engineering & Integration (SE&I) principles and emerging analysis technologies to lead the development of technical specifications, interface control documents, architecture models, integration and test plans and schedules, and verification and certification products for space systems. Join our team and create the future of Remote Sensing Technologies for the Aerospace industry.
