Raytheon Missile Systems is the world’s largest producer of advanced missile systems supporting our US warfighters and international allies. Every missile system produced by Raytheon contains a set of purpose designed electrical subsystems. These subsystems enable the guidance, navigation, signal processing, target detection and tracking functions of the missile. The Electrical Subsystems Directorate (ESD) is responsible for all aspects of these subsystems including design, test and production.

The Electrical Subsystems Directorate (ESD) Subsystems Center (SSC) is looking for Production Support Engineers responsible for Circuit Card Assemblies (CCAs) and other electrical subsystems hardware. We are seeking early career candidates with the skills and passion to engineer complex systems, subsystems, circuit card assemblies and components.

A successful candidate is one who can participate in a multi-disciplined team and properly apply engineering tools and processes. A candidate willing to collaborate and coordinate with Operations, Supply Chain, Quality, and other Engineering disciplines to resolve issues that may arise during production, testing, and integration. Qualified candidates must have experience with digital, analog and/or electro-optic testing and experience debugging complex circuit card assemblies or electro-mechanical systems. Knowledge of electro-optic / infrared devices preferred.
Responsibilities include:

  • Troubleshooting hardware and process issues down to CCA and component levels
  • Resolution of issues on production lines and in testing (including suppliers)
  • Failure analysis / root cause determination and corrective action implementation
  • Performing analog and digital circuit analysis, and testing and characterizing electrical signals in hardware
  • Identifying and instantiating circuit card and subassembly design updates

Location: McKinney, TX. Some travel to suppliers may be required.
