You will be a strong advocate for technical integrity of modeling and simulation products across multiple programs and product lines
You will be viewed as an expert and serve as a consultant to the organization to help develop technologies to achieve organization growth targets in the area of modeling & simulation, algorithm development, or performance-related studies
You will be the technical lead in a team environment on diverse projects, providing solutions to create high fidelity simulations and models for missile system design, performance assessment, flight test support, trade studies and evaluations
You will work alone, or through oversight of teams, to solve the hardest Modeling and Simulation obstacles
You will oversee a technical team, mentor engineers, and/or manage an engineering project
Qualifications You Must Have:
Bachelor's Degree in engineering disciplines, natural or physical sciences, mathematics, or physics
With a Bachelor's Degree listed above, you must have twelve (12) years or more of documented work experience designing and performing analysis with high fidelity performance simulations, using tools for evaluation of data sets (A Master's Degree will satisfy 2 years of work experience and a PhD will satisfy 3 years of work experience)
Recent applied work experience coding in C/C++ (or other high order language) and UNIX/Linux based workstations.
Must be the author of intellectual property (patent disclosures) or conference/journal publications in a modeling and simulation technical area within the past ten (10) years.
Must have provided engineering expertise to previous programs by participating in project design reviews and/or peer reviews, including preparing/delivering technical briefings to internal stakeholders and external customers
The ability to obtain and maintain a US security clearance prior to the start date. U.S. citizenship is required as only U.S. citizens are eligible for a security clearance
Qualifications We Value:
Advanced degree in aforementioned disciplines
Recognized technical authority in modeling and simulation
High level of expertise to drive technical solutions
Well known with established relationships in industry
Proven knowledge of fundamental concepts, with high level of analytical ability to drive technical solutions
Ability to participate in definition of team goals and provide solutions to complex technical tasks
A strategic visionary who does not operate in a silo, but can think about where a program or product line is heading or needs to go, while considering the technical aspects of how to get us there
Mentor and advocate of respect, diversity and ethics
Complementary expertise in the areas of signal processing, guidance navigation & control, or hardware design and test
Business development experience including technical and cost proposal preparation
Program management experience and familiarity with defense product lifecycles
Excellent verbal and written communications with internal and/or external customers and team members
Current Secret or Top Secret Department of Defense Clearance
