Engineering Fellow - Aircraft Interface and Integration

The Mechanical Subsystems Directorate (MSD) is seeking a Mechanical Engineering Fellow that is responsible for mechanical systems airframe architecture of products designed and produced by Raytheon Missile Systems. Candidate will be responsible to system requirements as it pertains to environmental loading and flow down to mechanical sub-systems, putting forth and leading the mechanical architecture of a product, leading the design phase enabling early cycles of learning, establishing critical design elements and processes, leading the delivery of the Tech Data Package (TDP), influence integration & qualification plans and model correlation, and maintain the design integrity during the production sustainment life cycle. In addition, this candidate will help shape the airframe development strategy for Raytheon Missile Systems including road maps for new technologies in materials, the design process, test architecture and manufacturing techniques for design elements of airframes as it pertains to missile systems. A remote work site may be considered.

This position will focus on design, analysis, fabrication, integration and testing of advanced airframes. In addition, physical and functional integration of the airframe with carriage and launch systems, encompassing land-, sea-, and air-based platforms, is a critical aspect of the required overall technical breadth. The candidate will be expected to effectively present their work in program and business unit reviews and to provide expert counseling and mentoring. The selected candidate will be expected to lead diverse teams, providing technical oversight and task delegation. The customers of this position will include internal Raytheon personnel and programs as well as external Government(s) personnel and programs. The selected candidate will work with the customer and engineering leadership to define design requirements to validate and to verify that hardware being designed is compliant with requirements.
