Raytheon Principal Electrical Engineer in Tucson, Arizona

Raytheon Overview: Raytheon Missile Systems is the world’s largest missile producer. RMS is responsible for the design, test, manufacture, and support of weapon systems equipping the US warfighter and our international allies to meet a large variety of demanding mission requirements. Every missile system produced by Raytheon contains advanced electrical subsystems. These enable target detection, target tracking, guidance, navigation, signal processing, and communication in extreme battle-field environments. The Electrical Subsystems Directorate (ESD) is responsible for all aspects of these subsystems’ design, test, and production. The Subsystem Design and Architecture Department, a part of ESD, is currently searching for an Electrical Engineer with experience in analog, digital, and/or power design, and experienced in integration and test to perform requirements analysis and advise on designs of guidance systems. This position does not entail detailed electronic design. Rather it leverages a depth of understanding and experience in detailed design, and applies that to the larger system (e.g. missile guidance section). The ideal candidate will have demonstrated a solid background in detailed design, have some experience in systems-level architecture, and have a desire to grow into a guidance section architect. This position can be a Principal Electrical Engineer or Sr. Principal Electrical based on the candidate's qualifications as they relate to the skills, experience, and responsibility requirements for the position. Job Description: Work environment is primarily in an office, but may include labs, field work, or a combination. Assignments may include analysis of hardware designs, subsystems, and components; architecting new electronic systems; developing and documenting subsystem requirements and test plans; peer reviews of designs as a subject matter expert; presentations to peers, Raytheon management, and government customers; and root-cause failure investigations. Raytheon Missile Systems has a strong culture of mentoring; it is expected that employees will be both mentors and mentees. Assignments may require supporting multiple programs. This position does not involve detailed design. This position may participate in or lead integration efforts. Assignments may require some travel, including foreign travel. Key Responsibilities: Work within a multi-disciplined team. Work independently, with little supervision. Develop a network, and know when to use it to get help. Ensure proper engineering discipline is applied to all designs. Provide the best technical solution within cost and schedule constraints. Required Skills: A Minimum of 8 years of experience in electrical systems, with a broad understanding of all hardware, firmware, software, components, and subsystems. An understanding of how parts of an electronic subsystem interact. Demonstrated experience in systems engineering including requirements development, requirement validation, and subsystem trade studies. Be able to communicate clearly and succinctly, both written and oral. Be able to convey advanced and complex technical concepts to scientists or managers, including government customers. Be able to manage multiple tasks. Be able to get a DoD Secret clearance. Have an engineer’s curiosity, and a desire to learn and grow. Desired Skills: Eight or more years’ experience working with missiles or similar systems. Experience in detailed hardware design. Experience in integration and test of CCAs and firmware, and into higher-level assemblies. A current Top-Secret DoD security clearance. A Master of Science degree in EE or Systems. Required Education (including Major): Bachelor’s degree required. Majors: Physics, Systems, Electrical Engineering, or other STEM degree . Security Requirement: This position requires the eligibility to obtain a security clearance. Non-US citizens may not be eligible to obtain a security clearance. The Defense Industrial Security Clearance Office (DISCO), an agency of the Department of Defense, handles and adjudicates the security clearance process.
