Safran Electronics & Defense Flight Control Systems have been flying and landing airplanes for over 30 years. Our customer base is a who's who of aircraft manufacturers. These industry leaders demand systems which satisfy the highest levels of criticality and quality at the lowest cost possible. This dichotomy provides a continuous challenge to our engineering team to employ new technology and methodologies in the development of our complex systems.

We are looking for a Systems Engineer to take on design and sustaining responsibilities in the development of pilot control systems, throttle control systems, large actuators, and related flight control products for the next generation of business, regional, military, and air-transport aircraft.

Systems engineering duties will span the entire product lifecycle, from initial design and requirements capture through manufacture, system testing, and field support. While working in a cross-functional team environment, daily tasks will include:

  • ●Requirements development and management,
  • ●Mechanical design, analysis, troubleshooting, and review,
  • ●Budget and schedule management,
  • ●Test/verification planning, development, and execution,
  • ●Customer interface, coordination, and communication, and
  • ●Coordination with manufacturing operations.


The selected candidate must be motivated to learn at a fast pace, have strong written and verbal communication skills, and be able to work autonomously or in a highly interactive team environment.

Knowledge/experience in the area of feedback control systems, integrated system/interface design, aerospace development process, electro-mechanical systems or aerospace mechanical systems is desirable, but not required. The ideal candidate will have experience with CAD design software, Matlab/Simulink, and a lab environment.


Minimum Degree: Bachelors' of Science in an Engineering Discipline such as Mechanical Engineering, Aero Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or other relevant engineering/physics/science discipline.

Manufacturing for many of our products and our customers are in locations that require travel. Travel distances range from 50 miles to global locations. Travel requirements vary with assignment, but will average 10%.
