Requisition ID 123074BR Date updated 09/06/2018
Raytheon is seeking a senior mechanical engineer to perform research, design, qualification and analysis of mechanical systems for military applications, with a focus on aircraft and armament products. The candidate will be responsible for the design of new products as well as the improvement of existing products. The candidate will utilize their mechanical engineering expertise during the development, production, and qualification testing phases of new product design.The candidate will create design solutions that meet product requirements using 3-D CAD modeling software, and prepare detailed data packages for use in production, integration, and testing.The candidate will provide leadership on mechanical issues to the project team, working closely with systems, electrical, and test engineers during product development.
The candidate should also be familiar with developing structural engineering specifications involving metallic, non-metallic/composite, and bonded structures. While one of the focus areas of this position is to perform dynamic and static structural analysis of mechanical structures, the qualified candidate may also be responsible for performing thermal stress analysis, transient thermal analysis, and supporting dynamic and climatic testing.
The candidate should be able to support multiple projects, in a fast-paced, team environment. An example of projects that may be supported include upgrades to military aircraft and ground vehicles, air armament equipment, and communication systems.
The successful candidate will demonstrate an ability to solve complex problems that require the regular use of ingenuity and creativity, and provide examples of guiding the successful design of major mechanical assemblies.
Required Knowledge, Skills and Experience:
Experience in the design, integration, and testing of mechanical components and assemblies
Excellent communication skills, both oral and written, with the ability to communicate to technical as well as management audiences
Technical leadership capabilities, including the ability to lead the resolution of tough technical challenges

Design and/or analysis experience with thermal management in electronic assemblies
Experience with NAVAIR 4.0 and/or SEEK EAGLE airworthiness processes needed to obtain flight clearance
Technical proficiency in ruggedized product design with design compliance to applicable MIL-STD-810 and 461 standards
Ability to estimate level of effort on projects/tasks for cost and schedule
Experience in coordinating multi-disciplinary teams and leading projects
Experience designing products utilizing casting, forging and extruded manufacturing processes
Experience designing products utilizing injection-molded plastics and composite materials
Experience designing to meet production cost targets (DFMA; DTUPC)
Experience supporting the development of an Engineering/Data Requirements Agreement Plan (EDRAP)
Required Education (including Major):
Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace, Systems, or related field.
