Imagine a working environment where people trust each other to achieve exceptional things.

Imagine a business that employs over ten thousand of the world's most sought-after engineers and technologists.

Imagine an enterprise where a belief in personal accountability continues to drive groundbreaking innovation and global growth.

This is the reality of Moog and you can be part of it.

As a Senior Aerospace Actuation Systems Engineer in Moog's Space and Defense Group you can expect to:

The Sr. Aerospace Actuation System Engineer has substantial control over the effectiveness of the overall technical solution (architecture, interfaces and control algorithms) developed to support the customer's needs. Major responsibilities can include: Definition and management of system requirements, building physics based models of the system and exercising the models over the entire operational environment, facilitating the other design functions thru the decomposition and allocation of requirements and support the integration and test of the resulting system. The Sr. Aerospace Actuation System Engineer will guide the system development through their knowledge of the system as a whole, its operational objectives, the subsystem operation and interfaces, and the technical, financial and schedule constraints.

Here's what you'll work on:

  • Lead the functional analysis, detail trade studies, requirements allocation and interface definition studies to translate customer requirements into hardware and software specifications. Effectively communication these internal design requirement to the other members of the design/project team.

  • Create system level models, design tools and simulations necessary to support trade studies and solution architectures with customers during early business development efforts.

  • Lead the identification and definition of all Verification and Validation approaches for the system or subsystem.

  • Lead the development of subsystem level requirements that are fully traceable to system level requirements. Write specifications to capture these requirements.

  • Lead system or subsystem level integration and test, including any anomaly investigations.

  • Create concise reports and proposal write-ups that describe the design decisions and analysis results.

  • Lead the preparation of successful proposals. Contributions to include subsystem level architecture, verification and validation approaches, component level design requirements, requirements compliance assessment, cost estimates and technical write-ups.

  • Develop new product designs and architectures through consulting with customers and sales personnel.

  • Support the creation of product platforms for each business unit that reduces the overall recurring cost associated with new product development.

  • Manage cost accounts as a Cost Account Manager (CAM) or Work Package Manager (WPM) for the system engineering portion of the design tasks. This includes multiple work packages and management to technical requirements, budget allocation and schedule allocation.

  • Represent Moog in a manner consistent with its strong technical reputation.

  • Operate as a contributing or lead member of in a team of creative, independent individuals.

  • Maintain and update modeling, sizing and simulation tools required to support each of the business units.

  • Contribute and participate in training seminars on key technologies and design methods for fellow Moog engineers.


  • Bachelor of Science Degree in Electrical, Mechanical, Software or Systems Engineering, with 10 years of progressive experience in the field of Engineering; Masters Degree preferred.

  • Knowledge of DOORS, Matlab and Simulink preferred
