Calling 2019 Grads!
Raytheon offers an innovative and inclusive culture; welcoming diversity and collaboration and providing numerous opportunities for career growth, as well as superior benefits.
The System Architecture Design and Integration Directorate (SADID) in Raytheon Integrated Defense Systems (IDS) is seeking entry level candidates for full time Systems Engineering positions with the Maritime Domain Systems (MDS) Team in Portsmouth, RI in 2019. The Maritime Domain Systems Department is focused on providing systems that align with the tenets of United States Navy Seapower strategy to ensure security, stability and prosperity. This is achieved by optimizing designs for affordability, sustainability, reliability and capability. This is an opportunity for college graduates from technical disciplines to begin a career in the design and development of sophisticated tactical defense systems at Raytheon. The selected applicant would be hired into MDS and join a team of talented engineers in developing sophisticated naval and maritime solutions on Raytheon’s Seapower programs. The ideal candidate has recently completed or is in the final year of an undergraduate or graduate engineering, math or science degree.
Specific job responsibilities will be designed to match the candidate’s technical interest and academic background, but will be focused on specialized sonar technology including design, implementation and analysis of complex sonar systems. Engineers in MDS are trained in the Raytheon systems engineering and architecture processes, and exposed to naval platform integration, systems of systems design for maritime and sonar applications, mine warfare and surface/subsurface combat systems. Teams are aligned to the MDS Charter, which is to design systems that are optimized for affordability, sustainability, reliability, and capability. The candidate should be comfortable working independently and in a team environment.
The Systems Architecture Design and Integration Directorate (SADID) is the central focus for Mission Systems Integration activities within IDS. SADID provides system level design through requirements definition for complex, large scale defense applications. To support this activity, SADID employees are responsible for modeling and simulation efforts, system effectiveness and operational analysis, radar systems design, signal processing algorithm development, tracking, and discrimination.
SADID's core capabilities encompass a wide range of the key systems engineering competencies required for successful technical development and program execution. Our capabilities cover the entire lifecycle, including business capture, proposal development, system requirements development and technical design, as well as system integration and test support.
Our general systems engineering expertise comprises architecting, requirements development, flow down and design, algorithm development, modeling and simulation, operations analysis and integration and test support. Areas of expertise are radar, sensor, battle management solutions, command and control, and cyber security.
What does a Systems Engineer do?
A Systems Engineer uses engineering and math skills to define the architecture of the system (the “pieces” and how they interact), the performance and functional requirements of the system (what the system must be capable of doing and how well), the subsystem design and requirements (what components are needed and how they must perform), and the integration of the components into the overall system. At Raytheon, Systems Engineers contribute to programs throughout the entire product development lifecycle, from inception to completion, and are applying model based systems engineering and architecture methods on many of today's most advanced-technology systems.
In support of design and requirements generation, the Systems Engineers also analyze the system’s operational capabilities through modeling and simulation tools. Systems Engineers are also involved in integration, string testing, fielding and operational tests.
Candidates must have obtained a Master's degree in 2019 or have completed a Master's degree no more than 18 months prior to start date, with an emphasis in emphasis in Systems Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Aerospace, Computer Engineering, Applied Mathematics, Physics or related technical field.
