Job Description:
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.


Key Responsibilities (Essential Functions):

  • Perform System Safety engineering tasks and analyses, applying technical knowledge to meet Raytheon and customer requirements
  • Interpretation of system requirements, customer specifications and military standards to develop appropriate safety requirements for hazard mitigation or elimination
  • Design verification (fault tree analyses, hazard analyses, sneak circuit analyses, software system safety analyses)
  • Exercise considerable latitude in technical decisions to meet customer requirements relevant to the System Safety program
  • Prepare internal and customer reports describing various analyses relevant to the System Safety program
  • Represent the System Safety Engineering Department as a member of the program, responsible for identifying key issues and addressing them to achieve optimal technical solutions
  • Interface with and function across multiple disciplines to gain a full understanding of the product architecture and design
  • Take an analytical approach and utilize technical knowledge to solve challenges with optimal solutions
U.S. Citizenship status is required, as this position will need a U.S. Security Clearance within 1 year of start date.

Required Skills, Education, and Experience:
  • US Citizenship
  • Bachelors’ Degree in Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM); Desired: ABET is the preferred, although not required, accreditation standard
  • Less than two (2) years of related system safety engineering experience
  • Have experience reading, reviewing, and understanding technical engineering drawings for the identification of energetics used in product configurations
  • Proficiency in MS Office suite products to include: Word, Excel, PowerPoint
  • This position requires the eligibility to obtain a security clearance. Except in rare circumstances, only U.S. citizens are eligible for a security clearance.
Desired Skills, Education, and Experience:
  • Master’s Degree in Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM); Desired: ABET is the preferred, although not required, accreditation standard
  • 2-4 years of related system safety engineering experience
  • Have experience with software development, to include C, C++, Java, and Assembly languages
  • Experience programming firmware/Programmable Logic Devices; exposure to VHDL programming and development environments
  • Self-starter with the ability to independently pursue technical information and solve problems
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Multi-task in a fast-paced work environment
  • Problem solve and seek out additional resources
This position requires the eligibility to obtain a security clearance. Non-US citizens may not be eligible to obtain a security clearance. The Defense Industrial Security Clearance Office (DISCO), an agency of the Department of Defense, handles and adjudicates the security clearance process. Security clearance factors include, but are not limited to, allegiance to the US, foreign influence, foreign preference, criminal conduct, security violations and drug involvement. Employment is contingent on other factors, including, but not limited to, background checks and drug screens. Additional information can be found here:
