Description

SAIC is hiring for a Ground Systems Engineer to make a difference for national security by joining a team of dedicated professionals in Aurora, CO, who assist the US Space Force in developing and deploying the next generation satellites and ground systems for missile warning (MW) capabilities.  These systems alert senior military officials when missile launches occur around the globe. 

Our Systems Engineering & Integration (SE&I) team has an immediate need for a Systems Engineer with experience analyzing space and ground system architectures. We are looking for innovative, creative, and highly motivated individuals to support the strategic planning and tactical execution of the next generation MW space and ground systems, focused on Command & Control and Mission Data Processing component integration, sub-system testing, and related activities.

Major duties of the position include: 

  • Ensuring the MW space and ground systems architecture and design of the customer’s systems are functional and meet or exceed system requirements.
  • Applying expert engineering knowledge of satellite command & control and mission data processing systems to author and/or decompose requirements and evaluate developer solutions to ensure consistency with the enterprise architecture.
  • Providing system, sub-system, and component-level integration services and technical assessments to enable an effective MW space and ground capability.
  • Assessing the sustainability of MW space and ground system designs from concept development and contract pre-acquisition through contractor design, production, testing, and transition to operations. 
  • Supporting system and sub-system interface test planning and execution activities for MW space and ground systems.
  • Identifying risks, issues, and inter-dependencies between system elements, contracts and stakeholders. 
  • Developing and briefing data packages that provide analysis results to inform the government decision-makers. 
  • Collaborating with prime contractors, other team contractors, government civilians, and members of the U.S. Space Force. 

Qualifications

  • Active TS/SCI clearance.
  • Master’s Degree in Math, Science or Engineering with 12+ years of demonstrated experience with space, ground, operations and sustainment segments of DoD, NSA, or NRO programs with a proven delivery record, or 14+ years of relevant experience with a Bachelor’s degree in Math, Science or Engineering. 
  • Relevant experience to be evaluated and considered for acceptability in lieu of technical Bachelor’s degree.
  • Experience in defining, developing, implementing and sustaining space and ground systems for the US Space Force, Air Force and/or Department of Defense. 
  • Strong interpersonal skills to enable working, interfacing, and interrelating with diverse personnel and dynamic teams.
