The Whole Life Systems Engineering (WLSE) Directorate is responsible for ensuring our products are Safe, Reliable, Maintainable, under configuration control and delivered on time. WLSE consists of multiple disciplines that support engineering, our program offices and our customers. Our WLSE disciplines participate in the total life cycle of our products from conception to deactivation. We are focused in two main areas, product support and technical data support. In the product support area, the disciplines are reliability, system safety and supportability. On the technical data side, the main disciplines are configuration management, software configuration management, and data management.
The System Safety Engineering Department is seeking a System Safety Engineer for our facility in Tucson, AZ.
System Safety Engineering ensures our Raytheon products safely perform their required mission functions through their required lifecycle environments while also meeting overall cost and schedule constraints. This position will be supporting programs specifically by working with experienced System Safety practitioners and missile engineering personnel to ensure that our products are designed with safety in mind.
What are the hazards in our products and what are all the energetics (explosives, gas vessels, lasers, springs, lithium batteries, etc.) contained within them? Do we have all the data and information needed to develop a safety assessment and request Safety Review Board approval? The SSE answers these questions every day. Entry-level engineers will work under the direction and mentoring of senior Safety Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) and their Engineering Leadership in handling System Safety Engineering tasks as members of the System Safety Engineering Department.
So what does a SSE do? They analyze engineering drawings, Bills of Materials (BOM), and work instructions to identify hazards, safety significant components and subsystems (to include software, firmware, hardware, procedures and training). The SSE submits supporting data to the proper safety approval authorities and archives the documents and supporting data within an internal document management system. The SSE is responsible for interacting with the Program Management, Engineering, EHS and government approval authorities from program startup operations until safety approvals are obtained, through Production and demilitarization and disposal activities. They regularly interface with lead engineers, Operations, and Program Management across all Raytheon products to support the system safety program. The SSE requires a high degree of self-motivation and ability to effectively interface with co-workers across all RMS product lines, Engineering, Operations and Supply Chain Management.
