We’ll look to you to share your engineering expertise through leadership and mentoring junior staff. This is a chance to use your experience-based knowledge in electromagnetic and topside surveys while broadening your skillset into areas like modeling and simulation, and operational assessments. Join us and take on exciting challenges in the DoD.
