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 applying Engineering and Digital Transformation approaches for Unmanned Maritime Systems? You have the drive to understand your Navy’s environment and how to develop the right systems for their mission. Your ability to translate real-world needs into technical requirements, architectures, and implementation strategies makes you an integral part of delivering a customer-focused engineering solutions and approaches.

As a Systems Engineer on our team, you have the chance to shape the Navy client's unmanned operational capabilities by leading Engineering efforts across multiple workstreams and implement digital practices and initiatives for Unmanned Maritime System design, development, and acquisition. Your technical expertise will be vital as you develop strategies for system behavioral analysis, requirements verification and test planning, and interface integration and management for complex UUV and USV platforms. You'll develop your skills in modeling, simulation, and data analysis while gaining experience with unmanned and autonomous vehicles. Grow your skills by merging system engineering and modeling and simulation to create test and evaluation strategies that take advantage of emerging Digital Engineering capabilities. Additionally, serve as a systems engineering lead to develop technical solutions for a pipeline of engineering opportunities across the Navy to drive new business growth. Join our team and help turn requirements into actions that drive and deliver digital innovation for the U.S. Navy.
