Job Description

Raytheon’s Electrical Subsystems Directorate (ESD) is seeking talented and passionate engineers to design and support a wide variety of missile avionics and electrical subsystems.

Job Description:
Raytheon Missile Systems is the world’s largest missile producer responsible for the design, test, manufacturer, and support of weapon systems supporting our US warfighter and international allies. Every missile system produced by Raytheon contains a set of advanced and purpose designed electrical subsystems. These enable the guidance, navigation, signal processing, target detection and tracking system functions. The Electrical Subsystems Directorate (ESD) is responsible for all aspects of these subsystems design, test and production.

ESD is seeking recent college graduates (within past 18 months) with the skills and passion to engineer complex systems, subsystems and components. A successful candidate is one who can participate in a multi-disciplined team and properly apply engineering tools and processes.

Assignments may include analysis of hardware designs, subsystems, and components; architecting new electronic systems; developing and documenting subsystem requirements and test plans; peer reviews of designs as a subject matter expert; presentations to peers, Raytheon management, and government customers; and root-cause failure investigations.

A depth of interest and understanding in one or more electrical technologies will make the candidate a possible fit in our electrical product technology group. These technologies include: optics, infrared systems, RF electronics, digital processing systems, FPGA/VHDL, analog, power, detailed circuit design and electronic product manufacturer and packaging.
