Job Description

Raytheon is looking for an entry level Systems Engineer with insatiable curiosity to join a high-performing team maintaining the Common Ground System (CGS) that manages a constellation of environmental satellites based out of Riverdale, MD. A continuous-learning mindset is required to develop an understanding of how this evolving, geographically-distributed set of CGS subsystems are configured, communicate, and used by customer flight engineers and operators. Team members must learn how the system works broadly then eventually specialize in one or more subsystems. The successful candidate will have a knack for troubleshooting and be able to work cohesively with teammates, who depend on each others different skills and knowledge, to plan and execute successful workarounds for problems and contribute to the development of long-term solutions.

As a member of the Deployment Team, the candidate will perform systems integration and testing of new software releases, deploy those releases into the operational system while protecting on-going spacecraft operations from disruption, and investigate CGS operations anomalies. The successful candidate must be comfortable working side by side with the customer in a helpful, service-oriented manner.
The candidate will support a wide variety of tasks in coordination with customer operations teams and the other Raytheon teams responsible for software development, hardware infrastructure, systems administration, security, configuration management, and quality assurance. This work will be performed in an existing and dynamic operational environment demanding rapid response and flexibility.

Security Clearance:
  • Qualified applicants will be subject to a security investigation and must meet the requirements to obtain and maintain a Secret government security clearance. Except in rare circumstances, only U.S. citizens are eligible for a security clearance.
Required Skills:
  • Excellent analytical problem solving

  • Ability to work collaboratively in a team setting
  • Ability to thrive in a dynamic operational environment

Desired Skills:
  • Experience with spacecraft or spacecraft ground systems
  • Proficiency with both Windows Server and Linux operating systems
  • Scripting experience, especially with Perl and/or Python
  • Strong MS Excel skills, including macro development
  • Previous Intern experience
  • Active Secret Clearance

Required Education:
Bachelors Degree in Aerospace, Electrical, Computer or System Engineering, Computer Science, or a closely related STEM field obtained within the past 18 months or by Summer 2019. A GPA of 3.0 + is strongly desired. Please include your GPA and transcript with your resume.

This position requires either a U.S. Person or a Non-U.S. Person who is eligible to obtain any required Export Authorization. 145426BR 145426
