Job Description

Systems Engineer – Full Time
The System Architecture Design and Integration Directorate (SADID) in Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) is seeking candidates for full time Systems Engineering positions in San Diego, CA. This is an opportunity for college graduates from technical disciplines to begin a career in the design and development of combat systems and platform integration 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 combat systems, electronic design, and platform integration for naval and defense programs.

SADID provides system level design through requirements definition for complex, large scale defense applications. To support this activity, SADID engineers 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.

Raytheon engineers in San Diego can take advantage of a great work environment that includes an onsite fitness center, flexible work schedules, and the ability to accrue vacation days. There are many activities offered throughout the highly active and diverse employee groups, and active employee recreation clubs which organize exciting outdoor events in the San Diego area. Raytheon is the place where a healthy work-life balance matters.

Job Description:
Systems Engineers in San Diego will be expected to work on challenging projects related command and control algorithms, missile engagement analysis, naval ship integration, computer and network Information Assurance (IA), and network security and architecture on the Ship Self Defense System (SSDS) Program. Work products will focus on dynamic modeling and simulation using MATLAB, requirements development, systems analysis, and support of software integration and test. Specific job responsibilities will be designed to match the candidate’s technical interest and academic background, but will likely include modeling and simulation, verification of system capabilities and performance measures, debugging of system trouble reports, root cause analysis and the development of corrective actions.

Systems Engineers use MATLAB, DOORS, Rhapsody, and ClearCase regularly to conduct data analyses, and are expected to document and present technical results using standard Microsoft Office tools. Depending on the phase of the program, systems engineers may also be required to spend time in an integrated computer laboratory, or may travel to/from deployment sites for field integration and testing onboard US Navy ships. The engineer should be comfortable working independently and in a team environment.

U.S. Citizenship status is required as this position will need a U.S. Security Clearance within 1 year of start date.

Candidates must be enrolled in, or have recently completed, an undergraduate or graduate STEM degree program (or completed a degree no more than 18 months prior to start date).

Desired Qualifications:
  • Internship/co-op experience, academic projects or course work in combat system design and platform integration:
    • Command and control algorithms
    • Missile engagement
    • Correlation/Data Fusion Algorithm development
    • Cyber Defense (Information Assurance and Certification & Accreditation)
    • Critical Infrastructure Protection
    • Network design/development
    • Surveillance and Security
  • Relevant experience or strong technical interest in systems engineering:
    • Systems Architecture
    • Requirements Development
    • Modeling and Simulation
    • Integration and Test
  • Leadership or participation in college campus organizations, athletic teams, or community service groups
  • Strong desire to learn, take initiative and contribute in a team-oriented environment
  • Strong analytical skills
  • Fluency in modern computer programming languages (e.g. Java, C++)
