What You'll get to Do:

C2BMC External or Internal Interface Engineer conducting interface definition and revision to incorporate new system capabilities and spiral development changes that affect the C2BMC interface. Primary responsibility will be developing and updating XML schemas (.xsd files) to support multiple Interface Control Documents (ICDs). Will work with multiple ICD authors and participate in multiple technical working groups to apply knowledge of the system domain and interface exchange requirements. Must have working knowledge of XML and proficiency in XML Spy. Successful candidate will attend interface working group meetings with MDA customer and representatives of assigned external element engineering organization as well as support to program integration and test related efforts for the associated interface. Successful candidate may also be assigned to support: other interface engineers in developing ICDs for other BMDS Elements; XML schema development; requirements engineering, use case development, and logical architecture modeling tasks as SE department tasking dictates. Successful candidate will support spiral leadership to assure interface artifacts and system assessment tasks required for the assigned sensor interface are completed when required.

Demonstrated Systems Engineering skills and experience with interface engineering, to include: message definition and processing rules; message formatting (e.g. XML, VMF, et al); physical/network specifications and models, to include the ISO OSI model; physical/network topologies and devices; network protocols (e.g. TCP/IP, UDP, et al). In addition, requirements engineering, to include experience working with IBM Rational's Dynamic Object Oriented Requirements System (DOORS). Desired skills include: requirements engineering, use case development, logical architecture modeling, MBSE modeling, to include: behavioral modeling (use cases, activity diagrams, sequence diagrams, statechart diagrams, etc.); structural modeling (structural composition diagrams, interface diagrams, conceptual object diagrams, etc.); et al., SysML, BMDS domain experience, RMF-based cyber security , and project planning utilizing MS Project, and Earned Value Management techniques and tools. Experience with Agile or Iterative Development Methods. Past experience with LRDR or other MDS sensor elements is a significant plus.
