SAIC is seeking a Reliability and Maintainability (R&M) Systems Engineer to influence system architecture in order to increase mission capability and availability, and decrease logistics burden and cost throughout the entire project and program life cycle of an exciting and innovative complex space and ground effort. The successful candidate will work both independently and in a team based environment focused on the use of management systems, analysis techniques and advanced condition-based and preventive technologies to identify, manage and eliminate challenges with/for system function.

Position requires a current TS clearance with willingness & ability to upgrade and will be located in Chantilly, VA.

Duties include but may not be limited to: 

  • Create and develop technical approaches, which are responsive to R&M requirements.  Ensure approaches are statistically valid and in agreement with state of the art practices and contractual requirements.  Identify and report on potential challenges.
  • Conduct routine engineering calculations. Interpret R&M statistical data and draw conclusions with supporting rationales.
  • Perform design tradeoffs while participating in design reviews.
  • Provide overall R&M expertise and judgment as necessary.  Provide continuing technical guidance regarding R&M characteristics to ensure that activity results in systems that meet high reliability, maintainability and other standards.
  • Perform R&M analyses of designs using standard methods and techniques including: failure modes, effects of criticality analysis (FMECA) and R&M predictions.  Administer failure reporting and corrective action system (FRACAS).
  • Provide input to life cycle cost models relative to R&M elements.  Work closely with budget and finance to help reduce costs.
  • Prepare and submit various reports, i.e., product performance, reliability, program and test, maintainability program and demonstration plans, and document activities for internal/external reporting. 
  • Prepare visual aids and conduct technical briefings for stakeholders, customers and teams.
