Responsibilities

Using a holistic approach, designs, develops, evaluates and modifies end-to-end systems and systems-oriented products through their entire life cycle. Generates quantifiable requirements based on customer description, system planning and design, and acquisition logistics. Ensures requirements comply with client requirements and government standards through formal verification methods. Translates high level product development strategies into system requirement specifications and works with other engineering disciplines to develop lower level detailed implementation requirements. Establishes and coordinates development of standards, practices, and procedures as related to the overall product development. Designs interfaces and brings system elements together so they work as a whole. Assesses performance using evaluation criteria and technical performance measures. Customer liaison and support for business development activities and to understand and shape requirements. Participates in system conceptual design and documentation of the design concepts. Translates high level product development strategies into system requirement specifications and works with multi-discipline engineering teams to develop lower level detailed requirements. Participates in design reviews of components (hardware and software) to ensure applicability to the current system and traceability of requirements through compliance verification and validation. Generates system level requirements verification procedures and customer acceptance test procedures. Reviews test plans/procedures and ensures they meet the objectives of the contractual requirements and participates in the testing process to validate requirements.

The program role is to perform operationally-unique trades and analyses of current and future mission systems, delivering a wide variety of specialty engineering and analysis in support of operational timelines.This position requires experience and understanding of operational systems and environments. The candidate is required to have a strong technical background with a focus on core systems engineering skills and significant domain knowledge of mission capabilities and performance.

The successful applicant for this position will provide enterprise-level systems engineering and analytical support to the government. They will evaluate and propose modifications to complex, end-to-end, intelligence systems and systems-oriented products, during their operational life cycle. Through formal measurement and verification, they will help ensure that operational systems continue to comply with written requirements and government standards. They will translate high-level operational needs into systems requirement specifications and work with other engineering disciplines to ensure the correct flow of those requirements into lower-level requirements. They will serve as a customer liaison and will support systems engineering activities and will understand and shape requirements for enhancements and future systems. They will establish and coordinate the development of standards, practices, and procedures as related to the use of complex systems.

The successful applicant will generate and execute testing procedures to verify the operational performance of end-to-end systems. They will also review test plans/procedures and ensure they meet operational objectives and will participate in and/or lead the testing process to validate the satisfaction of operational and mission requirements. They will collect and analyze data, produce metrics and trending information, and engage in end-to-end monitoring of complex intelligence systems. They will plan, coordinate, monitor, and report on the results of real-time engineering tests to provide daily checks on the performance of such systems. The successful applicant will be involved in special engineering studies that will require a longer term, more detailed analytical effort. They will also work to update and improve CONOPS for conducting engineering testing in this setting.

Position Duties:

  • Support monitoring of enterprise data processing, and the associated infrastructure, to provide timely detection of potential errors and system issues

  • Conduct first-level analysis of testing results, coordinate and/or perform detailed in-depth analysis of the results

  • Identify any degradations is system performance. Support notifications to the government and associated personnel. Perform and/or support root cause analysis of observed issues

  • Create and manage discrepancy reports, trouble tickets, or other forms of notification; Track through to resolution; Verify fixes are satisfactory

  • Support routine and ad-hoc scheduling of enterprise engineering tests

  • Update enterprise system performance information for customer use in accordance with government direction via web updates, word documents, discrepancy reports, emails, etc.

  • Monitor planned outages and other activities which may impact system performance and data accuracy and report findings or issues to the government

  • Plan, coordinate, and execute engineering tests following outages and events that may have impacted system performance or data accuracy

  • Identify and develop reference information and establish and monitor the accuracy of the information

  • Author Engineering Test Support Requests (ETSR) and design, plan, and conduct engineering evaluation test in support of enterprise operation and system deliveries

  • Prepare engineering test reports and findings

  • Ensure methodologies and approaches to analysis are based on accepted scientific and mathematical practice

  • Provide engineering evaluation support to laboratory personnel, as required
