System Engineer (focused on enterprise networking): The system engineer has primary and interdisciplinary skills integral to the life cycle success for developing, testing, deploying and maintaining an enterprise program. These life cycle tasks include: customer and internal requirements definition, baselining and analysis, enterprise network and related support systems architecture support, hardware and software design and development, solution design evaluation and verification, system integration and test, operations and maintenance support. The systems engineer assess the customers technical and business needs and works with the concurrent engineering team to identify optimal solution(s) that meet cost and schedule objectives. System's Engineer Job Responsibilities: • Assess customer objectives, goals, intents, requirements, standards, etc. and re-craft these multifaceted constituents to re-state the problem and translate into engineering objectives and requirements. • Establishes and maintains the requirements baseline and the verification traceability matrix. • Performs requirements definition and customer requirement analysis, decomposition and traceability mapping for consumption by architects and other engineering and business disciplines. • Establishes a requirements tracking process using established tools such as DOORS to allocate requirements to all elements of the enterprise network. • Develops trade-off alternatives evaluating make-buy feasibility by performing concept exploration using established trade-off techniques to identify the best solution inclusive of cost, schedule, function, performance, security, and risk using figures of merit. • Develops realistic use cases and scenarios that the program will encounter and tests various solutions performing proof of concept demonstrations or experiments. • Works with and supports the architecture team in evaluating architecture solutions and creates models of the target architecture alternatives to study the positive/negative effects. • Develops technical performance measurement objectives and produces TPM models to track progress in meeting the performance baseline. • Develops the system, subsystem and hardware/software specifications inclusive of the concurrent engineering team. • Verifies conformance of the design to specification requirements and the established baseline. • Produces engineering work products for the system under design to include: network communications hardware, software/platforms, systems, sparing plans, operational parameters, specifications, plans and reports. • Supports the development of the concept of operations in concert with the systems architect. • Identifies and quantifies risks and develops mitigation strategies. • Organizes and optimizes the integration of systems, businesses and people so that the interaction is highly efficient and operates as a whole. • Designs and defines interfaces between subsystems and external entities minimizing the amount of information to be exchanged between the subsystems and external entities. • Develops transformation strategies, plans and processes for migration from a legacy environment and for co-evolving components of systems and their integration. • Establishes a failure reporting, analysis and corrective action plan in coordination with concurrent engineering disciplines. • Provides human factor requirements and standards to human factor user interface developers and interprets the intent of the requirements. • Works with software engineering to develop and interpret requirements in the context of components and systems. • Establishes the bills of material (BOM) baseline for software and hardware and defines the inventory management control system. • Establishes reliability, maintainability and availability objectives and works with concurrent engineering disciplines to define solutions to meet these objectives. • Support system integration, test, acceptance and operations/maintenance during all phases of a program. • Conducts system requirements reviews, design reviews, preliminary and critical design reviews with concurrent engineering teams and contractors to monitor and measure the progress of a network or system being designed. • Enhances organization reputation by accepting ownership for accomplishing new and different requests; exploring opportunities to add value to job accomplishments. • Enhances engineering team accomplishments and competence by planning delivery of solutions; answering technical and procedural questions for less experienced team members; teaching improved processes; mentoring team members. Preferred Skills and Qualifications • Bachelor or Masters of Science in System Engineering or related degree with minor in computer science, mathematics • A minimum of 8+ years of experience in the system engineering field • Working knowledge of telecommunications as applied to systems engineering • Working knowledge of SDN/NFV through either an implementation or through applied study/testing • Experience working with US Government specifications and standards • Proven portfolio of large complex programs that required systems engineering and applied system life cycle processes • Working knowledge of the FAA and their engineering practices • INCOSE Certified Systems Engineering Professional (CSEP) or Expert Systems Engineering Professional (ESEP) certification • Public Trust clearance or higher level clearance attained • Excellent communication and writing skills to work with all levels of an organization System Engineer Skills and Qualifications: INCOSE CSEP or ESEP certification, system life cycle analysis, system or system of systems engineering, measureable requirements definition, analysis and baselines, TPM's, trade alternative concept studies and demonstrations, system level analysis and system level visualization, concept of operations, design optimization, risk management, decision based design, mathematical models, integration and test

EDUCATION & EXPERIENCE: Typically requires BS degree and 8 - 12 years of prior relevant experience or Masters with 6 - 10 years of prior relevant experience. May possess a Doctorate in technical domain.
