Systems Engineer (mid-career)

Description: Space is not a place to go - space is a place to do! Going to space is just the beginning. It's what you do when you get there that matters. Because space is a place to do big, important, epic things that connect people around the world, advance the frontiers of science, and help militaries protect what matters most. Lockheed Martin builds the technology that gets things done in space. Exploring the solar system. Predicting the weather. Delivering precise GPS. Detecting and defeating missile launches. At Lockheed Martin, we don't just think big thoughts. We get things done. So become a Lockheed Martin Space Systems Engineer. You are meant to benefit humanity.

MSP is seeking a strong and dynamic Systems Engineer to lead and coordinate the technical and programmatic impacts of class 1 and class 2 changes. This Systems Engineer role is largely about leading change and systems integration across a large, complex system from concept phase through operations, encompassing ground and space segments. The Systems Engineer will be required to coordinate and shape complete solutions to include cost, schedule and technical aspects for changes ranging from large enhancements to the baseline to small updates for better mission capability. This will also include ensuring our technical solutions have gone through the proper engineering coordination process to include MSP specific change boards (spacecraft working group, engineering review board, change control board etc.). The Systems Engineer will assist with contract changes across the program be it system level or IPT specific. The ideal Systems Engineer candidate will have systems integration skills across spacecraft subsystems, ground, and understand mission level outcomes. The Systems Engineer will demonstrate the critical thinking required to ensure the proposed solution is complete, integrated and provides the best program and customer value. This Systems Engineer role requires strong systems integration and communication skills working with the technical change leads, IPTs, spacecraft management, finance and business operations and contracts. The Systems Engineer will be interacting with all levels of program management from Associate Managers to the MSP Vice president and will be working closely with customer counterparts to ensure that the solution set being proposed meets or exceeds customer requirements at best value.
