There are two positions associated with this opening. The first is as a Principal Systems Engineer in support of the Wireless Program Office. The successful candidate will provide systems engineering support for the implementation and execution of architecture and standards, systems engineering integration, evaluation and requirements analysis to assist a customer that advocates and facilitates interoperability, commonality, modernization and integration with Cellular and Wireless networks. The SE will provide analysis and recommendations to the customer organizations partners, system engineers, and management in support of advocacy, facilitation, development and cataloging of current efforts underway in many IC and nontraditional partners. Provide SE services to assess and determine solutions for emerging technologies; and support migration and analysis of technology and research efforts. The SE will deﬁne, review, propose and develop process improvements for the SE and categorization of this technology to support Government wide efforts. They will synchronize and coordinate the research, development, and continued improvement of many capabilities to ensure alignment with IC efforts.
The second position is to support the Technology Transition Office. The Technology Transition Ofﬁce is responsible to the Chief of Capabilities Integration and Planning for the management and oversight of technology transition into and out of the Enterprise Architecture. These transition activities include managing the introduction of new prototype capabilities. The Technology Transition Ofﬁce provides support not only across MPO but to external IC partners to ensure transition stakeholder requirements are understood and considered. Transition activities include managing and supporting Technology Transition Ofﬁce process, monitoring and measuring progress through the process, identifying risks and recommending mitigations and supporting planning activities. Customer support requests are evaluated by the Government to determine alignment with its scope and objectives. Discrete task descriptions will be created for all requests and be used for tracking and to enable contractor assignments.
This Principal Systems Engineer will provide systems engineering expertise in scoping, planning, monitoring, and generating systems engineering artifacts to support the technical evaluation of prototypes, assist the government to facilitate technology transition into the capabilities architecture, and work with the government to facilitate / lead cross-directorate Integrated-Product Teams [IPTs] to engage stakeholders in accomplishing the work
Both opportunities require a Bachelor’s degree or advanced degree in computer science, information systems, engineering or other related discipline plus at least 20 years of systems engineering experience. A Master’s degree or PhD may be substituted for two years of experience. A high school diploma or GED plus 24 years of systems engineering experience would also be acceptable. Extensive experience with systems engineering processes that support planning, scheduling and managing several simultaneous efforts in a wide range of technologies.
Position requires TS/SCI clearance with polygraph and Intelligence Community (IC) experience.
