  • Verify systems engineering product life-cycle including definition, requirements analysis, synthesis, systems analysis and implementation.
  • Conduct product or system design synthesis translating requirements into physical architectures for systems of moderate complexity.
  • Define/refine internal and external interfaces.
  • Develop technical reports and diagrams detailing product or system attributes.
  • Analyze product or system functionality as defined by requirements.
  • Implement approaches that foster reusability of existing model expressions.

Additional Responsibilities

Interface with sponsors via meetings, technical exchanges, or programmatic reviews to convey system design, requirements, architecture, traceability, and other systems engineering responsibilities as necessary.

Required Minimum Qualifications

  • Bachelor’s degree from an accredited university in one of the relevant fields of study.
  • Familiarity with the various phases of the Systems Engineering lifecycle.
  • Familiarity with Model-Based Systems Engineering with the OMG Systems Modeling Language (SysML).
  • Experience with Enterprise Architecture Tools (commercial or open-source).

Preferred Qualifications

  • Active Secret Clearance
  • Experience with the DoD Acquisition Process
  • Experience with DoD Intelligence communities
  • Experience and training directly related to implementing Model-Based Systems Engineering solutions on complex, Department of Defense (DoD) programs
  • Experience with requirements development and management
