Lockheed Martin Space (LMS) in Huntsville, AL has an immediate opportunity for a mid-career System Safety Engineer who wants to be part of this mission. If you have an interest in working for a company that develops national defense systems, come and be a part of our System Safety Team. At Lockheed Martin Space, we are driven by innovation and integrity. We believe that by applying the highest standards of business ethics and visionary thinking, everything is within our reach – and yours -- as a Lockheed Martin employee. Lockheed Martin values your System Safety skills, training, and education. Come and experience your future!

In this System Safety Engineering (SSE) position you will provide support to a hypersonic missile program as a member of the Program’s SSE Team. With a focus on ordnance, you will ensure that safety is designed into hardware and software products and that controls are incorporated and remain effective while assuring compliance to safety requirements. In addition, you will ensure that risks are identified, mitigation, residual risk accepted, and documented. This role will also require that you review, track, and assess hardware and software changes for hazard impacts, and develop, maintain, and update safety hazard analyses.

As our SSE, your responsibilities will also include the following tasks:

• Develop and/or update Preliminary Hazard List (PHL), Preliminary Hazard Analysis (PHA), Functional Hazard Analyses (FHAs), System Hazard Analyses (SHA), and Safety Assessment Reports (SAR)

• Coordinate with test range safety teams and writing range safety reports to support testing

• Assist in the development and maintenance of a Hazard Tracking System (HTS) used to document real and potential hazards, their assessments, and their respective mitigations

You will use your system safety experience to evaluate hardware and software ensuring mission success with occasional travel (up to 25%) being required. Work is performed at the LM Space (LMS) campus in Huntsville, Alabama and will require frequent interaction with multiple external and internal customers. The HCSW Program is fast paced and as a result some overtime will be necessary to accomplish required tasks.
