Specialty Engineering is part of Systems Engineering that complements the technical activities required to deliver a project. It deals with engineering that influence the systems’ design and architecture in terms of performance, safety, usability, reliability, maintainability, availability, supportability, testability, and cost consideration throughout the lifecycle of the product. Specialty Engineering applies methods, standards, and techniques to provide clarification of system requirements to software, hardware, and test personnel to ensure design and architecture considerations are appropriately allocated to the system and horizontally integrated across the development teams. The Specialty Engineering function supports systems engineering activities including trade studies, use case development, requirements definition and derivation, interface definition, and requirement validation and verification. As such, all Specialty Engineers interface with the other Specialty disciplines and logistics engineering functions to ensure integration and continuity in the design and development process.

The Specialty Team is looking for candidates with experience in any one of the Specialty areas:

• Reliability, Maintainability, and Availability (RMA) Engineering
• Systems Safety Engineering
• Human Factors Engineering

As a member of the Specialty Engineering Team, expect a dynamic and demanding environment that values discipline, adherence to processes, and adding value to our customers through our respective disciplines.

This position is to support the preliminary and detailed design phases for programs within the Raytheon IIS portfolio that include the following businesses; Cyber Security and Special Missions, Global Intelligence Solutions, Mission Support and Modernization, Navigation and Environmental Solutions, and Transportation and Support Services. This position serves as a member of the Raytheon IIS Specialty Engineering Team and supports various programs within a matrix management assignment as directed. Deliverables include, but not limited to, program plans, technical reports, schedules, basis of estimates for new pursuits, and analyses as required to substantiate architectural/design decisions and trade studies.
