  • Attract, train, and retain engineers for the embedded systems team

  • Establish and maintain best practices for software development and test

  • Manage software development efforts to meet cost, schedule, and technical objectives

  • Develop avionics subsystem and component level requirements and verification plans for hardware and software

  • Participate in many functions of the embedded systems team such as hardware design, flight and/or test software development, and testing of hardware and software.

  • Interface with external suppliers and customers to manage requirements and verification, provide/review deliverables, track technical progress, and assist in anomaly resolution.

  • Produce and review documentation related to system-level electrical design (e.g. flight harness schematics, interconnect diagrams, grounding schemes)

    Required Qualifications:

  • Bachelor of Science (or greater) degree in Electrical, Computer, or Aerospace Engineering or a related field

  • 10+ years of experience supporting delivery of embedded systems.

  • Proven capability to lead in-house and subcontractor component/subassembly design.
