The Hardware Engineering Center (HWEC) is an engineering organization that focuses on product producibility and mission assurance. It is a vital link in the integrated product development process that allows Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems to introduce reliable new products faster, better, and more economically.
HWEC seeks a motivated senior Optical Engineer willing to apply their knowledge and experience in optical design, analysis, integration, and test to the development of advanced optical imaging telescopes, spectrometers, sensors, and special test equipment. Tasks may include performing critical opto-mechanical alignments, testing and troubleshooting of refractive and reflective assemblies, analyzing line of sight and budget allocations, optical requirements derivation, creating test and alignment plans, and interfacing with customers and suppliers. This engineer will be expected to work in a collaborative environment, at times contributing to multiple programs as a technical resource, and providing leadership and optical oversight where required. Additionally, the engineer should be capable of working with minimal supervision, anticipate and solve problems, and basically own all aspects of the optical design.
