Job Description

The System Architecture Design and Integration Directorate (SADID) in Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) is seeking candidates for full time Systems Engineering Cybersecurity positions with the Mission Systems and Sensors (MSS) Team in Fullerton, CA in 2018. MSS provides critical decision-making solutions for complex missions through the integration of sensors, operations centers, and telecommunications networks for air operations and battlefield systems.
This is an opportunity for college graduates from technical disciplines to begin a career in the design and development of sophisticated tactical defense systems at Raytheon. The ideal candidate has recently completed or is in the final year of an undergraduate or graduate engineering, math or science degree, and is interested in a career in Cybersecurity and the design of large scale electromechanical systems with defense applications.

Job Description
Specific job responsibilities will be designed to match the candidate’s technical interest and academic background, but will be focused on ensuring our software, hardware, and related components are protected from cyber attacks. Duties are likely to include developing new security systems and features, analyzing current systems for vulnerabilities, and developing and testing updates/patches and countermeasures to protect our systems against vulnerabilities, and performance assessment trade studies. All assignments will focus on developing the candidate’s competency and contribution to program requirements definition, model based systems engineering, sub-system integration and test, and algorithm design. Systems Engineers use MATLAB regularly to conduct data analyses, and are expected to document and present technical results using standard Microsoft Office tools. The engineer should be familiar with Microsoft Windows and Linux based environments, and be comfortable developing and reviewing code utilizing C, C++, Python, and Linux Bash scripting. The engineer should be comfortable working independently and in a team environment.

Organization

The Systems Architecture Design and Integration Directorate (SADID) is the central focus for Mission Systems Integration activities within IDS. SADID provides system level design through requirements definition for complex, large scale defense applications. To support this activity, SADID employees are responsible for modeling and simulation efforts, system effectiveness and operational analysis, radar systems design, signal processing algorithm development, tracking, and discrimination.

SADID's core capabilities encompass a wide range of the key systems engineering competencies required for successful technical development and program execution. Our capabilities cover the entire lifecycle, including business capture, proposal development, system requirements development and technical design, as well as system integration and test support.

Our general systems engineering expertise comprises architecting, requirements development, flow down and design, algorithm development, modeling and simulation, operations analysis and integration and test support. Areas of expertise are radar, sensor, battle management solutions, command and control, and cyber security.

What does a Systems Engineer do?
A Systems Engineer uses engineering and math skills to define the architecture of the system (the “pieces” and how they interact), the performance and functional requirements of the system (what the system must be capable of doing and how well), the subsystem design and requirements (what components are needed and how they must perform), and the integration of the components into the overall system. At Raytheon, Systems Engineers contribute to programs throughout the entire product development lifecycle, from inception to completion, and are applying model based systems engineering and architecture methods on many of today's most advanced-technology systems.

In support of design and requirements generation, the Systems Engineers also analyze the system’s operational capabilities through modeling and simulation tools. Systems Engineers are also involved in integration, string testing, fielding and operational tests.




Basic Qualifications:

Candidates must be currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate degree program (or completed a degree no more than 18 months prior to start date) with an emphasis in Systems Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Aerospace, Computer Engineering, Applied Mathematics, Physics or related technical field.



This position requires U.S. citizenship and the eligibility to obtain a security clearance


Desired Qualifications:

  • Leadership or participation in college campus organizations, athletic teams, or community service groups
  • Software development experience on larger projects.
  • Knowledge of C, C++, Python and Linux Bash scripting/programming languages
  • Strong Information Technology (IT) skills including knowledge of hardware (traditional and embedded), operating systems (Windows and Linux) and networks (Cisco).
  • Strong analytical skills, critical thinking skills, problem solving aptitude
  • Ability to think like a hacker and anticipate hacker moves
  • Relevant work or project experience in algorithm design, requirements development, software/hardware integration and configuration management
  • Familiarity with Microsoft Office toolset (Word, Powerpoint, Excel)
  • Engineering project, internship or co-op experience
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills
  • Ability to pursue information (“self-starter”). Desire to self-educate on the ever changing landscape of cyber hacking and defense tactics
  • Ability to work in a collaborative team environment
  • Authored Technical Papers and / or Technical Presentations
  • Minimum 3.0 GPA

Become a key contributor to our SADID team!

All these job responsibilities are to be executed in harmony with Raytheon's Code of Business Ethics and Conduct policy which sets the standard by which we operate and how we treat others.
