Job Description


  • Provides technical support to field engineers, technicians, and product support personnel who are diagnosing, troubleshooting, repairing and debugging complex electro/mechanical equipment, computer systems, complex software, or networked and/or wireless systems.

  • Responds to situations where first-line product support has failed to isolate or fix problems in malfunctioning equipment or software.

  • Reports design, reliability and maintenance problems or bugs to design engineering/software engineering.

  • May be involved in customer installation and training.

  • Provides support to customer/users where the product is highly technical or sophisticated in nature.

  • Generally interacts directly with the customer/user when the product is highly technical or sophisticated in nature, such as with systems level software where the user has a technical background.

  • Additionally, may interact with product support personnel and potentially the customer when the customer’s problem cannot be resolved directly by first-level resources.   (It should be understood that this is not intended to be a detailed nor comprehensive description of any individual employee's job content. Managers set the specific duties and responsibilities for each employee).

  • SCOPE: N/A
  • KNOWLEDGE/SKILLS AND ABILITY: Applies extensive technical expertise and has full knowledge of other related disciplines. Receives assignments in the form of objectives and establishes goals to meet objectives.  Provides guidance to subordinates to achieve goals in accordance with established policies.  Work is reviewed and measured based on meeting objectives and schedules.  Establishes and recommends changes to policies which affect subordinate organization(s).

  • PROBLEM COMPLEXITY: Develops technical solutions to complex problems which require the regular use of ingenuity and creativity. 

  • FREEDOM TO ACT: Work is performed without appreciable direction.  Exercises considerable latitude in determining technical objectives of assignment.  Completed work is reviewed from a relatively long-term perspective for desired results.  Exercises judgment in selecting methods, techniques and evaluation criteria for obtaining results.

  • IMPACT: Guides the successful completion of major programs.  Erroneous decisions or recommendations would typically result in failure to achieve major organizational objectives.

  • LIASON: Represents organization as prime technical contact on contracts and projects.  Interacts with senior external personnel on significant technical matters often requiring coordination between organizations.

  • Responsible for the translation of operational "demand" from actual war fighters into engineering "supply" of products to comply with intentions of multiple DoD decision processes in support of National Military and Security Strategies.

  • Specifically, this role requires support to strategic intentions for the "needs-based" and "acquisition-based" processes.

  • Requires leading a team or aligning with other teams to shape the definition of USMC only, Multi-Service, and Joint level experiments, operational assessments, or other operational integration activities to mature product engineering over the acquisition continuum.

  • Acquisition continuum includes non-Program of Record, funding outside of "core" accounts as well as traditional acquisition programs.

  • Responsible for identifying and recommending the mitigation of USMC operational engineering risks, in concert with the integrated government and industry engineering community, to refine derived requirements and implementations, as early as possible.

  • Responsible for providing technical assistance in the development, testing, procurement, and program management of technology and/or policy studies or analysis in support of United States government goals and objectives.

  • Works on complex problems.
  • May provide technical guidance to other engineers and scientists. In some instances, this individual may be responsible for a functional area and may not have subordinate employees.

  • Develops and administers budgets, schedules, and performance requirements.

  • Frequently interacts with subordinates, supervisors, customers, and/or functional peer group managers.


  • HS/GED and thirteen (13) years’ experience; Associates and eleven (11) years’ experience; Bachelors and nine (9) years or more experience; Masters and seven (7) years or more experience; PhD and four (4) years related experience.

  • Requires the ability to understand engineering "lead time" for supply, to prioritize war-fighting demands, to project when supply equals demand, and finally, the integrity to be honest to GO/FO leaders when existing practices have broken down.

  • Requires the ability to work with the industrial defense complex within the scope of their contracts.

  • Candidate must be a US Citizen.
  • Must be able to obtain a Full DOD Secret Security Clearance.          

Desired Qualifications

  • Prior experience in immersed leadership to translate operational needs into engineering, implementation requests, and assessment of deliveries for "fitness for operational" use.
