The Boeing Defense, Space & Security (BDS) Systems Engineering team is currently seeking a systems engineer on MQ-25 located in St. Louis, Missouri. The successful candidate is a self-starter with the ability to plan, design, and verify a balanced life-cycle system solution is achieved. In this role you will perform as a Built-in-Test/R&M interface with customers and internal partners.
Influences design characteristics in a collaborative environment and lead the evaluation of customer/operational needs to define system performance requirements.
Applies extensive knowledge of aircraft systems (e.g., avionics, hydraulic, electrical, egress systems), components (e.g., multifunction displays wing, engine, landing gear transmission), and loadable/non-loadable software (e.g., radar operational programs, inertial navigation programs, operational flight programs) and specialty engineering methodologies and tactics
Reviews engineering specifications, drawings, and engineering artifacts to propose design modifications that improve cost and performance characteristics.
Analyzes customer provided requirements and develops an Reliability and Maintainability (R&M) program plan that achieves customer objectives
Allocates top level requirements to design team specifications and work statements as well as leads the development of R&M predictions and tracks performance
Analyzes system and individual part parameters to develop projected product utilization and calculates cumulative effect on final system reliability.
Leads failure mode, effects and criticality analysis (FMECA) and formulates mathematical models to identify items posing excessive failure and safety risks and proposes changes in design and maintenance strategies.
Develops computer models and uses the results to analyze, predict, adjust, and verify design parameters.
Support failure reporting and corrective action and other root-cause corrective action activity.
Active participant on design teams, provides guidance and recommendations to designers and management to ensure reliability and maintainability objectives are achieved.
Applies risk assessment methodologies (e.g., hazard severity, probability or likelihood of occurrence), and tools (e.g. fault tree analysis, failure modes effects analysis, connector pin analysis, sneak circuit analysis, software safety analysis.)
Provides inputs to proposals for submittals to customers. Review subcontractors' proposals for reliability program and submits evaluation for decision.
Acts as a mentor to develop technical skills of fellow teammates and equipment engineers.
This position offers relocation based on candidate eligibility.
