ITE Test Engineer II

Job Description
See what you're missing. Our employees work on the world's most advanced electronics - from detecting threats for F-35 pilots to illuminating the night for soldiers. Spanning air, land, sea, and space, we are developing the technology of tomorrow, delivered today. Drawing strength from our differences, we're innovating for the future. And you can, too.
Our flexible work environment provides you a chance to change the world without giving up your personal life. We put our customers first - exemplified by our mission: "We Protect Those Who Protect Us®." Sound like a team you want to be a part of? Come build your career with BAE Systems.
Electronic Combat Solutions (ECS) has technology, engineering and program teams that educate and mentor colleagues to deliver leading Electronic Warfare capabilities. We welcome all those who have big ideas, crave innovation, want to drive fielding velocity and have the passion to bring the warfighter home safe.
BAE Systems is looking for Test Engineers to join the Integrated Test Engineering (ITE) organization. ITE is a rapidly growing discipline within the Engineering organization with the mission to reliably deliver customer-focused, affordable test solutions which are integrated across all levels of production test. If you are energetic, forward thinking, want to make a difference in the workplace and work on exciting projects, this is the role for you.
You will use your capabilities to develop Test Program Sets (TPS) to provide production test solutions needed for our Electronic Warfare (EW) products. These TPS will be developed for Test Stands, Interface Test Adapters (ITAs) and other types of Test Equipment needed for In-Process (IP), Environmental Stress Screening (ESS) and Acceptance Tests (ATP) ranging from component to systems level analog, digital and RF products.

  • An ITE Test Engineer II is responsible for developing and maintaining the test solution's baseline, participates in integrating software and hardware for the test solution, and verifying the test solution's readiness to be released for use in our factories. These responsibilities are carried out either as an individual contributor on small projects or a team member on larger efforts with direction and guidance supplied by the Integrated Test Engineering Lead (ITEL) and/or senior engineers.
  • The expected responsibilities for a hardware focused test engineer may include designing analog and digital backplanes, creating interfaces to control environmental conditioning equipment and supporting hardware test verification activities to certify hardware test solutions.
  • The expected responsibilities for a software focused test engineer may include developing or updating software for Test Program Sets (TPS), instrument driver development, and migration of older software to current operating system configurations.
In this job you will apply your skills to solve some of our biggest challenges for fielded systems including state of the art radar warning, electronic support measures, broadband electronic attack, and electronic protection. Join BAE and help us in our mission as "We protect those who protect us". We support our employees with a flexible 9/80 work schedule, technical training and career growth planning.
