Network Engineer

BAE Systems’ Mission Computing Product Line has an exciting opportunity for a well-qualified systems engineer to develop, control, and test enterprise class computation & I/O servers and human interface elements on DOD projects and on internal research and development efforts. The selected candidate will support their production in the co-located factory, and will provide field upgrade activities at customer locations. The candidate will work under the guidance of a lead engineer, in small teams, and in individual capacities.

Enabling skills include electrical engineering / computer engineering, and information technology network analysis and development. Will employ these skills to survey and assess COTS product options, identify tailoring requirements, perform trade studies, develop specifications, support subcontracting and procurement with tailored specifications, evaluate and integrate OEM products, capture and maintain product configuration specification, drawings, and other documents using the corporate documents configuration management system, and to develop and execute developmental test and evaluation plans and procedures. The systems engineering full lifecycle development process will be followed. This candidate will assess vendor electronics schematics to approve and advise to requirements, and will potentially develop some circuitry elements. Will develop and maintain specification and assembly drawings for the various deployed configurations of the systems, and ensure their completeness coherency. Will select parts, design and document interface/cable/harness design drawings and BOMs. Will perform and support integration and test activities by using and developing shell scripts for Centos/Red Hat Linux operating system, as well as interactions with IPMI shelf management systems for ATCA and VPX platforms. Will assess, specify, configure and test various networked elements including Compute Engine Blades, Network Switches, Firewalls, and various I/O modules (e.g. 1553, ARINC429, discrete I/O, fiber/copper Ethernet, IRIG-B, etc.) Will load and configure BIOS, UEFI, network boot, firmware, software and address Non-Volatile memory concerns. Configuration and revision management attentiveness requirement is pervasive. Will support development activities in an office environment, and will implement, integrate, test and support test setups for all discipline’s testing activities in engineering laboratory and manufacturing floor environments. Will support functional bench test, design verification test and full qualification activities (functional and environmental). Field support activities will occur mainly at Naval Air Stations or associated hangers for the aircraft fleet, with potential activity at prime contractors manufacturing facility.

Optional experience with displays technology and analog power electronics would be a plus. Additional related experience includes performing “hands-on” design, analysis, and test of digital, analog, mixed signal and embedded system prototype and production hardware, rugged designs for harsh environments, electrical circuit and CCA design and analysis, firmware development, technical trade studies, interface/cable/harness design, component selection, evaluation of technology insertion/upgrades, laboratory test and troubleshooting using oscilloscopes, DVM, etc. Familiar with electrical engineering design/analysis tools- Experience with FPGA and embedded processor programming.

Candidate should have experience and in-depth knowledge of systems development processes and procedures and work well in a team environment. Good verbal, written, and communications skills are essential.

The ideal candidate will thrive in a learning environment that encourages leadership and technical growth. Candidates with various experience levels will be considered for this position. Minimum Education and Experience Bachelor’s Degree and 5 years work experience or equivalent experience Required Skills and Education Bachelor Degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or related scientific field. 5+ years related electronics experience. Preferred Skills and Education

Master Degree in Systems Engineering, Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering, related experience in the ATCA, MicroATCA, VPX, computer networking, computer system architecture, Linux, general electrical and software debugging (approaches and tools), system architecture, configuration management of product baseline documents and drawings.
