We consider welcoming different perspectives as one of our strongest attributes

Collaboration is the key to the way we make things happen. We are a community of individuals who have different approaches to problem-solving and who enjoy opportunities to share their particular skills and their strengths.

We genuinely value people who can articulate their points of view while also respecting those of others. That's why employees who thrive in this kind of collaborative atmosphere feel so much at home in our work environment. We are currently inviting talented candidates who have these work-style preferences to apply.

Ready to use your expertise on a wide variety of difficult defense security assignments, applying analytical techniques as part of a team that tackles national defense challenges? Want to take your skills to the next level to work and dab into cutting edge technology?

Parsons is now hiring a fully qualified, Airborne BMD Sensors Engineer/Analyst with a passion for providing systems support on a variety of highly complex tasks. Parsons is a leader in the world of defense and cyber security. We need our analysts to be versatile, highly teachable and enthusiastic to tackle new challenges across a broad range of planning, analysis, modeling, simulation, integration, and execution functions.


  • Mid-level engineer/analyst working as an integral member of the Missile Defense Agency (MDA) Advanced Technology Directorate team working advanced airborne laser and sensor technologies for next generation ballistic missile defense operational applications.

  • Responsible for project planning, technical evaluations, test/demonstration planning, pre and post test/demonstration analysis, program summary reports and technology transition planning.

In your work experience, how many companies have talked about an open to new ideas, but seemed to be "out to lunch" whenever someone actually presented a concept that was perceived as threatening to the company's way of doing things? After that kind of past experience, it's no wonder that when organizations tout their openness, many perspective applicants take it with two grains of salt.

But we're different! Because we really mean it! And if you look at who we are and what we've been able to accomplish, you'll agree.

You don't have to be a rocket scientist to understand that not everybody envisions possibilities in the same way. And at our organization, we value the way that even the smallest tweak in a procedure can change an entire system. That's how progress happens.

And that's why there is no better opportunity than ours to give you an open door that can lead you to professional openings of all kinds if you're someone with new perspectives to share. So please contact us to learn what we can do to propel your professional goals forward.


  • Bachelor's Degree in Engineering, Physics, Math or a related field.

  • Minimum 15 years of experience Experience in network detection and analysis hardware.

  • Knowledge and experience with airborne laser and sensor systems.

  • Project office experience working engineering, test and/or project planning.

  • Willing to travel statewide

Parsons has been a leader, innovator, and change agent for 75 years. Over this period, our industry has undergone continual change and we have been, and continue to be, proactive in taking advantage of the opportunities presented by change. The pace of adaptation of transformational technologies such as artificial intelligence, cloud computing, robotics, and big data analytics in our markets offers Parsons exciting opportunities to solve complex challenges for our customers in new and different ways.
