As a Moog Aircraft Group Systems Engineer, individuals must bring a solid technical background, passion for learning and working through difficult problems, and exhibit potential for leadership in the future. A Systems Engineer will be a key contributor to one or more of Moog's new development projects focused on designing, verifying, and delivering aircraft flight control actuation systems (FCAS) or weapons bay door actuation systems (WBDAS). Specific tasks may involve requirements definition, system design, integration and test, report writing, and customer briefings.

The successful candidate must be sound technically and sufficiently broad in his/her experience or interest areas to delve into complicated problems involving the interaction between mechanical, electrical, and software subsystems. Additionally, he/she must bring a demonstrated experience in solving complex problems in a collaborative team environment, preferably in an aerospace context. Applicants must be highly motivated "self-starters" willing to tackle multi-disciplinary engineering problems and "own" responsibilities that, by their nature, will require both consultation with engineering peers and self-motivated research. The successful candidate will be interested applying big picture thinking to resolve technically challenging problems, and enjoy working in a multi-disciplinary, fast-paced environment.

Here is what to expect on a day-to-day basis:

  • Contribute to the design, validation, and verification of a FCAS/WBDAS

  • Operate as member of the Systems Engineering team, within a multi-disciplinary project team

  • Be responsible for generating design artifacts including:

  • Simulation models

  • Design requirements

  • Validation and verification plans and procedures

  • Test and analysis reports

  • Communicate on a technical level with customer representatives and suppliers

  • Be proactive in asking questions, doing research, and understanding Moog's technology

  • Analyze and troubleshoot problems for root cause, and be involved in implementing solutions

  • Learn from senior staff and apply lessons quickly and efficiently to assigned tasks

At a minimum, you will need to meet these qualifications:

  • MS in Electrical, Mechanical, Aerospace, Systems Engineering, or related field, with 6 to 12 months of Engineering co-op, internships or other engineering work experience; alternatively a BS in Engineering with 4 years' experience in design / development engineering

  • The ability to obtain (in a timely manner) a Secret-level security clearance and access to Special Programs

  • Demonstrated academic success in a technical track

  • Demonstrated leadership or team experience of a technical nature

  • Excellent verbal and written skills required

  • Basic knowledge of Matlab/Simulink tools

  • Excellent communication and people skills

  • The ability to travel Requirements to other Moog sites, customer sites (US based); 10-25%

Preferred qualifications include:

  • Experience and advanced proficiency with Matlab/Simulink/Stateflow tools

  • Experience and advanced proficiency in control system design

  • Knowledge of hydro-mechanical and/or electro-mechanical actuation technologies

  • Familiarity with aircraft flight control systems

  • Experience in laboratory settings testing electrical/mechanical hardware

  • Experience coding in software/scripting languages e.g. C/C++, Python
