Job Description:
Credence Management Solutions, LLC (Credence) is seeking an Aerospace Engineer to support Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) at Tinker AFB, OK.


  • Supply systems engineering processes to aeronautical propulsion systems.
  • Utilize a broad understanding of aeronautical propulsion engineering disciplines, evaluate and manage risks, requirements, functional / physical architectures, and interfaces to develop, produce, and sustain propulsion systems.
  • Conduct interdisciplinary evaluation and shall validate of critical factors including mechanical design, structural dynamics, aerodynamics, heat transfer, combustion, material science, system integration, and testing in order to meet aeronautical propulsion system requirements.
  • Apply propulsion system integrity principles to establish and maintain Operational Safety, Suitability and Effectiveness (OSS&E) of fielded systems.
  • Provide technical expertise for systems engineering that integrates technical processes to define and balance system performance, cost, schedule, risk, and human systems integration within a family-of-systems and systems-of-systems context.
  • Embed systems integration engineering in program planning and be designed to support the entire acquisition life cycle.
  • Manage technical requirements for aeronautical propulsion systems in sustainment.
  • Ensure sustainment activities are effective and economical.
  • Identify and resolve propulsion supportability and reliability issues that may impact the weapon system.
  • Provide a working knowledge of propulsion system development.
  • Assess development documentation to uncover deficiencies or shortcomings including but not limited to test plans/reports, test and evaluation master plans, system specifications, SOWs, and system designs.
  • Use computational tools, build models, and understand results.
  • Understand, assess, and implement USAF airworthiness standards.
  • Utilize standard engineering computational tools (i.e. MATLAB or equivalent) applied in technical areas, Weibull failure analysis techniques, and propulsion safety risk management processes.
  • Apply sound quality practices to ensure a robust design and manufacturing processes that consistently result in products meeting design requirements.
  • Assist the Government with the design, development, implementation, and evaluation of aerospace manufacturing processes (including the facilities, tooling, people, etc.) to efficiently and effectively produce products meeting design requirements.
  • Provide accountability and discipline to the systems engineering process by establishing and maintaining key technical management activities throughout a program's life cycle. The key technical management activities include configuration identification, configuration status accounting, configuration control, verification/audits and data management.
  • Apply policies, requirements, systems, and procedures for the definition, establishment, verification and control of technical product data (also known as engineering data).
  • Support translation of user requirements into system requirements, which will be used to design, develop, fabricate, test and evaluate systems, subsystem and equipment for eventual fielding and deployment.
  • Perform technical / mission analyses of existing and future operational requirements, assist in developing system concepts, and perform technological / trade-off assessments of proposed designs/modifications.
  • Assist contracting personnel by performing technical evaluations of contractor proposal submissions prior to placing engineering changes on contract.
  • Assist, review, and provide recommendations for AFIs and other policy documents as required.
  • Perform professional engineering analysis of engine starts/hours including correlation of starts and hours to engine performance and part wear.
  • Support planning, organizing, and coordinating of the ELMP to achieve safe/effective engine performance until retirement.
  • Support IPT activities to redesign, fabricate, and test obsolete components for long-term program risk reduction.
  • Support IPT activities to identify and develop component repairs for long-term program risk reduction.
  • Analyze progress of program efforts on assigned projects and technical tasks; identify and scope problems, provide recommendations and evaluate results of implemented solutions and implement technical policies/procedures that affect resources and programs.
  • Perform additive manufacturing.
  • Perform manufacturing process control.
  • Perform and function as the Project Manager when tasked.
Job Requirements:

Security clearance: Secret Security Clearance.
Individual must possess a BS/MS/PhD from a Accredited Board of Engineering and Technology School (ABET) in Aerospace Engineering or Mechanical Engineering or Materials Engineering.
