OUSD(R&E) is looking to transform Systems Engineering culture to utilize the new advances in ongoing initiatives (e.g., Digital Engineering, Modular Open Systems Approach, DevSecOps, Agile approaches) and relevant technology advances (e.g., Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning, cloud computing). The near-term goal is to standup Agile-type Systems Engineering practices for the DoD at the OUSD level by leveraging transformational best practices already ongoing in other agencies. The candidate will work with the DoD Systems Engineering community of practice to share processes and data from existing programs using best SE practices; build a dynamic body of knowledge based on best practices; assess SE capability gaps and recommend solutions to address gaps; and facilitate reuse of the body of knowledge across OUSD(R&E) Modernization priorities (e.g., Autonomy, Cyber, Hypersonics, Directed Energy).
Work will be performed primarily at the Pentagon, the Mark Center in Alexandria, VA, and local company offices.This role is temporarily remote/work from home/virtual due to COVID-19. Eventually the work will go back to 100% onsite once the threat of COVID-19 has passed.
