Model-Based Systems Engineer

The Challenge:

Are you looking for an opportunity to combine your technical skills with big picture thinking to make an impact in Digital Engineering and connecting the tactical edge to our nation's defense networks? 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 Systems Engineer on our team, you have the chance to shape satellite communications systems by managing the system development life cycle of satellite communications data controller software. Your customer will trust you to not only design, develop, and test these systems, but also evolve them with advanced technology solutions. Your Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) expertise will be vital as you to develop strategies for system behavioral analysis, requirements verification, and test planning, and interface integration and management for a complex software application that will connect the tactical edge to defense networks. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset into areas like modern software development processes like Agile and Dev SecOps, modeling, simulation, data analysis, defense networks, and cybersecurity. You will focus on requirements definition and management, as well as test and evaluation, taking advantage of Digital Engineering capabilities, growing your skills by merging systems engineering and satellite communications to create the next generation of tactical data communications. Join our team and create the future of data communications for the DoD.
