Strength Across the Spectrum.

Turn the lights out on your enemy. Operate unimpeded in the modern threat environment. To do that, you need to control the electromagnetic spectrum.

Electronic warfare uses focused energy, usually radio waves or laser light, to confuse or disable an enemy's electronics. It can also involve listening —collecting an enemy's radio signals or sensing the radar of an incoming missile.

For more than 50 years, our jammers, decoys and other electronic warfare products have earned a worldwide reputation for performance and reliability.

Today, we're pioneering new technologies, like gallium nitride, and giving our warfighters a strategic advantage by providing them with low risk, modular, open architecture that can be easily adapted and upgraded. We are developing tactical lasers, the Next Generation Jammer and other weapons, along with electrical systems capable of powering whatever innovations the future holds.

We are seeking a Program Manager (PM) to be primarily responsible for multiple small to medium development programs, either in the TD phase or EMD phases. This role will be located in beautiful Santa Barbara, California. This area on California’s central coast is idealy located for someone who enjoys great weather year round, being close to the beach, and mountains and taking advantage of true outdoor living. Want to love where you live and work? Then consider this Program Manager role with Raytheon.

The PM is responsible for total program performance including project execution, business goals and customer relationships. The Emerging Programs (EP) classified programs are highly technical and the PM may also be responsible for complementary technology transition efforts. The PM must understand and participate in the Engineering robust design processes and be able to lead a technical cross-functional technical team. The PM must have thorough knowledge of USG product fielding requirements, including DT/OT&E, training and support, and transition to production and guide the team through those milestones. The candidate should have a thorough understanding of the DoD contracting process and be able to guide a team through the RFI, proposal, and through negotiations and contract award. Knowledge of complex IF types is desirable, especially Fixed Priced Incentive Development programs.

The PM will manage program performance including execution, financial objectives, risk management, schedules, and all other contractual commitments. The PM will interact heavily with the Government customer community across a broad spectrum of program progress and issues and must inspire confidence within this community that the Raytheon team/solution/approach is effective. The PM will advise management (and/or customers) through briefing packages that EACs, cost and technical proposals, Gate Reviews and Program Plans accurately reflect the program's health and/or are achievable. Given there are generally no direct reports to this PM position in the matrix organization, the PM must have good communication skills to engage the team and functional management in order to achieve success. This will include working with section and department managers to ensure the team members have the correct technical skills to develop the product. The PM must continue to evaluate the needed skills and replace team members as required. Because of security requirements for these programs, the PM will be limited in the number of people that have access.

Mentoring of these cleared personnel on how to maintain relationships with their customer counterparts and ways to provide tasking for unclassified efforts will be required. Given the size and complexity of these efforts delegation and supervision of work products is necessary to ensure technical success as well as cost and schedule. This PM will also be required to influence upcoming requirements for follow-on programs and to expand its application to new platforms.
