EB Groton Shipyard


The software safety engineering team assures that engineered systems provide acceptable levels of safety. Safety engineering assures that life critical systems behave as needed, even when components fail. Safety analysis techniques focus on finding causal dependencies between a hazard on a system level and failures of individual components. Software safety analysis approach focuses on what must go wrong, such that a system hazard may occur in addition to the severity of consequences of that hazardous condition.

Department 422, Environment, Safety and Occupational Health (ESOH) engineering ensures that potential hazards are identified during technology development, design, construction and maintenance activities. The ESOH group proactively identifies risks to people, equipment, and the environment inherent in design, operation, and construction, and determines sufficient means to mitigate the risks.

The safety engineer must perform technical ESOH analyses on submarine ship systems, components, materials, drawings, specifications and other design disclosures in accordance with MIL-STD-882E and other requirements, and develop analysis reports that identify and document safety hazards and environmental impacts.

The role of this position is to perform software safety engineering on both new and modified submarine electronic, electromechanical and electrohydraulic systems. Tasks include conducting and documenting safety analysis of software controlled system design; system requirements, software requirements, code analysis, test plans, test procedures, and test results. Position requires the engineer to work independently and take initiative to learn submarine systems and associated software safety concerns as well as to work effectively in a team environment with system hardware and software developers.

Electric Boat offers Flexible Work Arrangements that allows some work to be performed remotely and at home. This varies from position to position based on the amount of classified material the department interacts with, as well as a few other variables. Please ask for more details on how it applies to this opening during discussions with the department.

Department 422 ESOH engineering team members exemplify Electric Boats core values: Value each other, Behave with integrity and purpose, and Commitment to excellence.
