Systems Engineering and Design - All Levels

This position description does not represent a current opening but may be used to identify candidates with skills and experience for positions within Northrop Grumman that frequently become available. Candidates who express an interest may be considered for future positions at Northrop Grumman.

We are seeking capable, talented, and motivated team-contributors at our Northrop Grumman Rolling Meadows site. Our products range from advanced sensing technologies to state-of-the-art targeting and tracking systems that are deployed in Electro-Optical Infrared (EOIR) and Radio Frequency Electronic Warfare (RFEW) systems. These systems are designed, developed, built, integrated, and tested by the capable folks at our company to protect the lives of US and Allied warfighters in present and future conflicts. If you are interested in consideration to be included as a part of this team, we would invite you to apply.

In Systems Design, you will work as part of the team to fully define the requirements and design our EOIR, and RF systems. This will require you to not only learn and support the "ins-and-outs" of the systems, but also to be able to clearly articulate the systems in both documents and orally to key stakeholders on the programs. We expect that you will play a critical role during internal company reviews and customer review meetings such as Systems Requirement Reviews (SRR), Preliminary Design Reviews (PDR), and Critical Design Reviews (CDR).
