  • Collaboration with critical Raytheon resources (managers, directors, cross disciplinary teams, etc.) to ensure program execution.

  • Ensure process diligence through content compliance

  • Support and lead business pursuits and growth strategy

Basic Qualifications:

  • Minimum of twelve (12) years of experience with systems verification, validation, integration and test or related experience

  • Minimum of ten (10) years of experience with systems engineering

  • Technical expertise in test methodology for Electro-Optical, Infrared and Radio Frequency systems.

  • Ability to apply advanced technical principles in the integration, verification, and test processes (including virtual verification)

  • Technical leadership with new business capture/pursuit experience including contribution or authoring of white papers, RFI responses, proposal of technical volumes or related experience

  • Active DoD Secret Clearance (SSBI desired)

  • Patents, Papers and Publications in related technical field (Desired)

Required Education: Bachelors of Science (B.S.) in engineering field (Electrical, Computer, Mechanical, Aerospace or Systems), science or related technical field. (Advance degree desired)

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