Test Systems Design Technologist/ Engineering Fellow

We are looking for a Test Systems Design Technologist to provide a systems approach to the design and development of novel production, depot and engineering test environments used to ensure the performance capability of Missile Systems (MS) products. The Test Systems Design Technologist is a technical member of the MS Test Systems Technology Pyramid.

It is the role of the Test Systems Solution Center (TSSC), an engineering center within the Systems Test Directorate,to protect the warfighter by delivering proven and affordable Test Solutions that ensure the capabilities and integrity of MS products.

The individual will have the opportunity to:
  • Work with State-of-the-Art and Emerging Technologies.
  • Work with the Systems Test Director, TSSC Center Manager, Test Systems Chief Technologist, Customers and a Multidiscipline Team in a Collaborative Environment.
  • Define Innovative Hands-On and Automated Test Systems for a Variety of MS Products.
  • Mentor the Developers of Hardware and Software Designs
  • Grow Within the Business as a Technical Authority.

The Test Systems Solutions Center employs multiple engineering and disciplines and is seeking top talent to join its creative and energetic team of over 520 engineers.

Job Description:
The Test Systems Design Technologist candidate must have the ability to provide expert technical leadership to a multidiscipline team performing design, integration and validation of MS test products within the Test Systems Solution Center. As such, the candidate will be primarily responsible for defining test environment architecture and providing technical leadership during all stages of Special Test Equipment (STE) development for missile products with an emphasis on test efficacy, commonality, efficiency, and affordability. The Test Systems Design Technologist will be responsible for test solutions across all MS product lines and associated programs. The candidate will report to Systems Test and Test Systems Chief Technologist leadership levels while working autonomously to define strategic solutions. The individual will work with and through other engineers while being accountable for the technical soundness of test solutions through the entire development lifecycle to include integration, requirements verification, customer acceptance, and post-delivery support of highly complex test systems that include simulation, stimulation, and data acquisition capabilities to provide stimulus to and response from highly complex Units Under Test (UUT) at different levels of assembly up to final weapon configuration. Typical work involves: frequent use and application of complex engineering standards, principles, theories, concepts and techniques; employ knowledge of systems engineering and other engineering disciplines; interaction with other engineering groups to define, analyze, perform, and interpret tests requirements; uncovering issues and determining a course of action to obtain the desired results; routinely report of progress to leaders; leading and presenting in design reviews; authoring associated technical documents; maintaining a high level of expertise in the role and applying advanced technical knowledge to present and future test system designs. The successful candidate will show a high degree of collaboration, technical vision, and leadership that defines the technical path for future test solutions aligned with future MS products.
