Job Title: Lead, Systems Integration Engineer
Location: Ashburn, VA
As a Lead Systems Integration Engineer supporting our Unmanned Systems, you will lead requirements development, component trade studies, system design, system integration, and design verification testing while working closely with the Program Chief Engineer who is responsible for the project's technical solution.
What's a day in the life like in this role? This is a systems engineering position, so the tasking is similar to what you've done before. But the difference is that you're working in a completely different culture and mission mindset. Our team sizes are smaller, allowing for collaboration, great ideas, and contribution from all levels in an agile product development environment. In other words, you're not stove-piped into one area, and instead can work the entire engineering lifecycle. You get to solve hard problems. Your day is spent working on new and exciting technology and methodology that hasn't been done before. You're inspired to do your best work every day, because what we do matters!
About us: Advanced Systems & Technologies (AS&T) division specializes in developing disruptive, next-generation technologies in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and Systems. What does that mean ? It means that as the non-traditional 6th prime, we're developing entirely new clean sheet designs. We aren't designing upgraded parts of an existing system. We are immersed in technology and we are technology driven.
