***Great opportunity for current college students entering their Junior or Senior year by Fall 2019 or college graduate students (entering or currently enrolled) in a graduate program by Fall 2019. If you are not a current college or graduate student, please visit our other opportunities at and apply!***

Job Description:
Are you amazed by the satellite views of cool places on Earth? Are you excited by the fire and fury of a rocket launching into space to examine distant galaxies? All of these capabilities are made possible by the products made by Raytheon. We invite you to consider joining us in developing the next generation of space-based imaging systems.

Perhaps your interests are in EO/IR optical or RF technology, sensor test, orbital mechanics, digital signal processing, space mission planning or any of the myriad of engineering disciplines that make space imaging a reality. Engineering and the sciences are the avenues we use to make innovative imaging products that protect our planet, explore our universe, and ensure our national security. If you have a clear passion for developing or testing new technologies, we would like to hear from you. Space imaging is a rapidly expanding field, and we seek your skills and imagination to grow in partnership with us.

We are the Raytheon Space Systems Engineering Integration & Test (SEIT) center. Our job is to ensure that from beginning to end, our products are properly engineered.

When a program begins, our Systems Engineers and Analysts define the product requirements based on the needs of the customer. Our Design Engineers then use their skills and creativity to design innovative solutions. Our Software Engineers create flawless applications that allow for autonomous operations in space. Our Integration Engineers take the individual elements of the product and assemble them to create the most advanced imaging systems on the planet. Finally, our Test Engineers test the completed system in the most severe environmental conditions.

Systems Engineering, Integration and Test is a great place to become intimately involved in the hardware, software, and missions of space systems. We analyze product options using simulations and modeling to select the best designs. We examine the technical requirements for our products, develop plans and procedures for testing, conduct tests, and analyze test data to ensure the systems will work as intended in the brutal environment of space. We also support the on-orbit operation of our sensors from control centers located around the world.

Often our products include advanced lenses, mirrors, focal plane arrays, antennas, motors, cooling systems, power supplies, processors, and loads of electronics and software. Our engineers develop a keen understanding of high tech space products, which is a fantastic gateway to career advancement in technical leadership or management.

When a rocket vaults our products into orbit, our teams gather at the launch site and cheer our work into space with a sense of well-deserved pride and accomplishment. Soon after, the images created by our engineers and scientists begin appearing on countless sites on the internet, and support critical national security objectives. Our contributions are real, and make an important difference in the world.

Roles:

  • The type of work you can do in the Raytheon SEIT organization depends on your level of experience and interests:
  • Perform modeling and simulation of space systems missions and equipment
  • Develop architectures, requirements, test strategies, and verification plans
  • Conduct test activities, such as verification of imaging performance, software, and environmental compatibility
  • Communicate status, results and recovery plans to management and engineering teams
  • Participate in system engineering reviews and engineering analysis of space systems
  • Support new business development efforts through participation in proposal generation


At Raytheon, we strongly believe in continuously developing the capabilities and skills of our staff. We understand that the most effective engineers and scientists comprehend more than just technical details, but are also well-grounded in the other critical facets of our business that keep us competitive and growing. Throughout your time at Raytheon, expect to be challenged to learn and engage in the management of programs, schedules, finances, people, and business development. Professional growth is a requirement at Raytheon, achieved by challenging each engineer to take on increasing levels of responsibility.

For Multi-Level Intern Requisitions:
This position can be a Salary Grade of G04, G05 or NUG based on the candidate's qualifications as they relate to the skills, experience and responsibility requirements for the position.

  • G04 (College Junior by Fall 2019) - must have completed 60 hours of college
  • G05 (College Senior by Fall 2019) - must have completed 90 hours of college
  • NUG (Post- Graduate-Masters-PhD by Fall 2019) - must have an undergraduate degree and currently enrolled or about to enroll in a graduate degree program


Required Skills:

  • Demonstrated interest in systems engineering processes, including requirements definition, design, test planning, test execution, data analysis, and operations support
  • Multidisciplinary interest in the engineering design and/or test of optical and/or RF systems and associated special test equipment
  • Demonstrated desire to successfully pursue new challenges, improve and broaden technical skills, seek greater responsibilities, and increase individual value to the organization
  • Must be a college Junior, Senior or Graduate student by Fall 2019
  • This position requires the eligibility to obtain a security clearance. Except in rare circumstances, only U.S. citizens are eligible for a security clearance.
  • U.S. Citizenship status is required as this position will require the ability to access US only data systems


Desired Skills:

  • Aptitude for preparing and delivering briefings
  • Capable of effectively working in a team environment, often under tight deadlines
  • Be an enthusiastic engineer or scientist who is comfortable and adept at seeking new and innovative methods to improve engineering results and efficiency.
  • Effectively maneuver and negotiate through multiple layers of established organizations using solid logic, technical analysis, and innovation to improve long-standing practices.
  • A major responsibility of our positions requires the ability to positively influence the design of future products through involvement in the preliminary design and bid processes. A candidate who works effectively in system design, verification, and proposal support is ideal.
  • Experience in space systems engineering functions
  • Engineering experience with space imaging technology
  • Modeling and simulation of space systems
  • Ability to obtain a SSBI clearance


Required Education (including major): Currently pursuing a BS / BA degree from a four-year university and entering as a college Junior or Senior year OR pursuing a MS / MA / PhD by Fall 2019. Must be working towards a degree in Engineering, Science or Math, or equivalent technical discipline. Must be appropriate grade level listed above.
