The Systems Engineer develops and defines the system-level design concepts that meet the mission needs of our Customers. Systems Engineers work with all engineering disciplines needed to develop system requirements and architectures and establish systems capabilities and operational concepts. Systems engineering activities include system architecture design, trade studies, specification development, requirement definition and allocation, performance analysis and simulation; system modeling and simulation tool development, and support to hardware design, manufacturing, integration and test.
(Typical duties include the following, although specific duties vary by assignment or contract)
Support all levels of requirements development and verification.
Specifications, use cases, activity diagrams, functional flow, timing, and interface integration development
Decomposition of high-level requirements and their allocation to subsystems, hardware and software configuration items
Requirements management and configuration control using modern database tools to manage configuration and traceability, and interface with modeling tools to verify system configuration and operation.
Oversee personal and team administrative activities necessary for the effective management of organization goals and objectives, configuration and document controls, project scheduling, standards metrics within the department, and product quality.
International travel to customer locations may be required.
Perform other qualified duties as assigned.
