Sr Principal Mechanical Engr

Raytheon Company Space and Airborne Systems business unit is seeking a highly motivated Mechanical Engineer with EO Sensor design experience to design Electro-Optical sensors for defense applications. The position is located in Aurora Colorado.

The Space EO Mechanical Department is seeking a Senior Principal Mechanical Engineer to help develop the next-generation of EO sensors for space applications. The candidate is responsible for helping to establish the Sensor technical baseline, including structural, thermal, and optical requirements and system interfaces. The successful candidate is also responsible for understanding design requirements, coordinating mechanical design, preparing design reviews, and presenting engineering designs and recommendations at Raytheon internal reviews, and customer / consultant design reviews. The position requires the mechanical design leader to understand tasks from the pre-proposal phase through conceptual design, preliminary and critical design, build, integration, test and delivery of complex Electro-Optical Sensors. The successful candidate will be leading a cross-functional engineering and analysis team from a strong technical background involving material selection, optical layout, thermal management, precision mechanical mounting and motion, and structural optimization while balancing cost and schedule constraints.

The Sr Principal Mechanical Engineer is responsible for preparing large sections of program technical reviews including: the SRR, PDR, CDR, TRR, MRR, CTI, and CTS presentations. These are typically large volumes of technical information that must be prepared and presented to internal line management, technical staff, program management, and customer reviewers and their consultants. New concepts must be "sold" to these highly-experienced individuals including well thought-out plans to mitigate / minimize potential technical issues.

Duties include design and analysis of EO Sensors, technical leadership and oversight of integrated design products, execution of Raytheon product development processes and technical risk assessments, deployment and improvement of design processes, technology planning and roadmap alignment, and mentoring junior engineers.
