Job Description

Note: These positions are for 2018 start dates only.

Are you a college student who enjoys putting complex engineering systems together, testing and attempting to break them? Would you like to understand the possible modes of failure, developing fixes or redesigns, retesting and ultimately fielding a system which will perform with NoDoubt each and every time?

Are you about to graduate with a degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Systems Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or Computer Science who is interested in becoming a Systems Engineer and working in integration, test and validation activities? Then you might be ready to begin your professional career as an engineer within Raytheon’s IDS Systems Validation, Test and Analysis Directorate (SVTAD).

IDS Engineering’s Systems Validation, Test and Analysis Directorate (SVTAD) is the central focus for integration, test and validation activities. SVTAD employees provide the expertise to ensure customer success through the development and execution of innovative and comprehensive test, verification, and validation strategies, processes, tools and techniques. SVTAD employees are involved in all aspects of test including: design-for-test, integration, subsystem and component level testing through sell-off of IDS ' most sophisticated systems and technologies.

SVTAD's System Engineers work with the other IDS directorates and Integrated Business Teams from initial concepts to product sell-off, assisting in the integration and testing of hardware and software, developing test plans and procedures, debugging and testing systems functions and interfaces, and by conducting performance evaluation, system verification, live fire readiness reviews and system sell off.

As Systems Engineers, we work within an interdisciplinary process that ensures that the customer's needs are satisfied throughout a system's entire life cycle. This process is comprised of the following seven tasks:

1. State the problem. Stating the problem is the most important systems engineering task. It entails identifying customers, understanding customer needs, establishing the need for change, discovering requirements, and defining system functions.

2. Investigate alternatives. Alternatives are investigated and evaluated based on performance, cost, and risk.

3. Model the system. Running models clarifies requirements, reveals bottlenecks and fragmented activities, reduces cost and exposes duplication of efforts.

4. Integrate. Integration means designing interfaces and bringing system elements together so they work as a whole. This requires extensive communication and coordination.

5. Launch the system. Launching the system means running the system and producing outputs -- making the system do what it was intended to do.

6. Assess performance. Performance is assessed using figures of merit, technical performance measures, and metrics -- measurement is the key. If you cannot measure it, you cannot control it. If you cannot control it, you cannot improve it.

7. Re-evaluation. Re-evaluation should be a continual and iterative process with many parallel loops.

Positions in Huntsville, Alabama specialize in Radar System integration, test, evaluation, validation, modeling and simulation, data analysis, and flight test analysis.

This position can be a Salary Grade G06 or Salary Grade G07 based on the candidate's qualifications as it relates to the educational requirement for the position.

This position requires the eligibility to obtain a security clearance. (Non-US citizens may not be eligible to obtain a security clearance. The Defense Industrial Security Clearance Office (DISCO), an agency of the Department of Defense, handles and adjudicates the security clearance process. Security clearance factors include, but are not limited to, allegiance to the US, foreign influence, foreign preference, criminal conduct, security violations and drug involvement. Employment is contingent on other factors, including, but not limited to, background checks and drug screens. Interested job seekers must apply online at www.raytheon.com/campusto determine if they meet qualifications for specific positions and other employment requirements).

Basic Qualifications:

· M.S. Degree

· Engineering project, internship or co-op experience

· Educational background or interest in the following areas:

o Radar Architecture or Algorithms

o Signal Processing and Control theory

o Model based engineering and architecture

o Statistics, random processes and detection methods

o Imaging / pattern recognition

o Cyber security, encryption, information assurance

o Data filtering and processing techniques (e.g. Kalman, batch, optimal)

· Strong analytical skills are desired, and prior experience working in MATLAB or equivalent analytical programming languages is desired (Java, C++, Visual Basic, etc).

· Relevant work or project experience in algorithm design, requirements development, and software/hardware integration and configuration management would also be beneficial

· Excellent written and oral communication skills

· Ability to pursue information (“self-starter”)

· Ability to work in a collaborative team environment

· Authored Technical Papers and / or Technical Presentations Active Secret clearance
