The System Architecture Design and Integration Directorate (SADID) is seeking candidates for full time Systems Engineering positions with the Radar Surveillance (RS) Team in McKinney, TX.
RS provides critical decision-making solutions for complex missions through the integration of sensors, operations centers, and telecommunications networks for air operations and battlefield systems. This is an opportunity for college graduates from technical disciplines to begin a career in the design and development of sophisticated tactical defense systems at Raytheon. The ideal candidate has recently completed or is in the final year of an undergraduate or graduate engineering, math or science degree, and is interested in a career in the design of large scale electromechanical systems with defense applications.
Our Systems Engineers use engineering and math skills to define the architecture of the system (the “pieces” and how they interact), the performance and functional requirements of the system (what the system must be capable of doing and how well), the subsystem design and requirements (what components are needed and how they must perform), and the integration of the components into the overall system. Specific job responsibilities will likely include search/track/discrimination algorithm development, performance assessment trade studies, and analysis of sensor signal and data processing subsystems. Systems Engineers also analyze the system’s operational capabilities through modeling and simulation tools, and are involved in integration, string testing, fielding and operational tests. Systems Engineers use MATLAB regularly to conduct data analyses. Candidates should be comfortable working independently and in a team environment.
This position requires the eligibility to obtain a security clearance. Except in rare circumstances, only U.S. citizens are eligible for a security clearance.
Candidates must have currently enrolled or completed an undergraduate degree no more than 18 months prior to start date, with an emphasis in Systems Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Aerospace, Computer Science or Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Applied Mathematics, Physics or related technical field.
