As a Systems Engineer (SE), the candidate will analyze user's requirements, concept of operations documents, and high level system architectures to develop system requirements specifications. The candidate will also analyze system requirements and leads design and development activities as well as guide users in formulating requirements, advises alternative approaches, and conducts feasibility studies. In addition, a successful candidate will provide technical leadership for the integration of requirements, design, and technology, incorporate new plans, designs and systems into ongoing operations, develop technical documentation, system Architecture and system design documentation and guide system development and implementation planning through assessment or preparation of system engineering management plans and system integration and test plans.
- Derive lower-level requirements from higher-level allocated requirements that describe in detail the functions that a system component must fulfill, and ensure these requirements are complete, correct, unique, unambiguous, realizable, and verifiable
- Contribute to the development of sections of systems engineering documentation such as System Engineering Plans, Initial Capabilities Documents, Requirements specifications, and Interface Control Documents
- Assist with the development of system requirements, functional requirements, and allocation of the same to individual hardware, software, facility, and personnel components
- Develop system design solution that satisfies the system requirements and fulfills the functional analysis
- Participate in the development of system engineering documentation, such as System Engineering Plans, Initial Capabilities Documents, Requirements Specifications, and Interface Control Documents
- Participate in establishing and gaining approval of the definition of a system or component under development (requirements, designs, interfaces, test procedures, etc.) that provides a common reference point for hardware and software developers
- Capture all interface designs in a common interface control format, and store interface data in a commonly accessible repository
- Assess each risk to the program and determine the probability of occurrence and quantified consequence of failure in accordance with an approved risk management plan
- Manage and ensure the technical integrity of the system baseline over time, continually updating it as various changes are imposed on the system during the lifecycle from development through deployment and operations & maintenance
- Establish and follow a formal procedure for coordinating system integration activities among multiple teams, ensuring complete coverage of all interfaces
