Electromagnetic Engineer, Senior

The Challenge:

What if you could use your engineering skills to transform the Navy? As an electrical engineer, you understand the power behind complex systems. That knowledge is key when it comes to working within the electromagnetic spectrum. We’re looking for an electrical engineer who can use their skills to diagnose, measure, troubleshoot, and analyze Department of Defense (DoD) weapons and electronic systems.

Our team provides engineering and technical services in support of the Navy's electromagnetic environmental effects (E3) mission. That’s why we need you, an electrical engineer, who specializes in E3 engineering as it relates to Radiation Hazards (RADHAZ). You will evaluate the Hazards from Electromagnetic Radiation to Personnel (HERP) and Hazards from Electromagnetic Radiation to Fuel (HERF), to help us design and develop DoD weapon and electronic systems. You’ll survey, plan/prepare, test/evaluate, and predict/identify within this space. You’ll directly impact the Navy warfighting mission by ensuring DoD weapon and electronic systems are maintained, advanced, and operate as intended. We’ll look to you to share your electrical engineering expertise through leadership and mentoring junior staff. This is a chance to use your experience-based knowledge in E3 while broadening your skillset into areas like ground, air, maritime, space-based, and other spectrum dependent systems. Join us and take on exciting challenges in the Naval Warfare Center environment as we continue leading engineering innovations that will support the defense of warfighters across the globe.

Empower change with us.

You Have:

  • 8 years of experience with conducting HERP/HERF surveys on shipboard environments
  • 4 years of experience with conducting Radio Frequency (RF) measurements and leading teams of engineers and technicians to conduct surveys, including predicting and identifying problems, defining and designing corrective measures, and maintaining and updating documentation in DoD knowledge management systems
  • 4 years of experience preparing technical documentation, including test plans, test reports, evaluations, detailed analysis, or technical presentations to stakeholders
  • Knowledge of a wide range of RF measurement equipment, including probes, oscillator scopes, or analyzers
  • Knowledge of military standards and specification for electromagnetic effects relating to RADHAZ
  • Knowledge of shipboard topside occupied environment and shipboard emitter parameters
  • Ability to work both independently and as part of a dynamic, fast paced, and geographically disparate team
  • Secret clearance
  • BA or BS degree

Nice If You Have:

  • Experience conducting analysis in other RADHAZ areas such as Hazards from Electromagnetic Radiation to Ordnance (HERO)
  • BA or BS in EE, Mechanical Engineering, Physics, or Mathematics preferred; MA or MS degree a plus


Applicants selected will be subject to a security investigation and may need to meet eligibility requirements for access to classified information; Secret clearance is required.
