Lockheed Martin Systems Engineer Prin in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania

Description: System Engineering Lead for Major Subcontracts

This position is for a key role on a large government program to provide engineering leadership and oversight for very large subcontract development and delivery of major systems valued at greater than $100M. The candidate requires extensive experience in systems engineering for RF, communication, or electronic warfare systems involving technologies such as reflector antennas, phased array antennas, high power amplifiers, and receivers. The candidate requires extensive experience with architecting large systems and decomposition of customer mission requirements down to primary subsystems. The position will require the candidate to manage complex trade spaces involving schedule, cost, and technical performance factors. The candidate will lead complex decisions for the subcontracts and manage interdependent factors including technology trade studies, insertion of new technology, requirements flowdown, architecture and interface definition, contractual construct, and schedule. The candidate will be required to navigate between program and customer driving requirements as well as subcontractor capabilities to develop solutions that achieve mission success and optimize cost, schedule, and technical performance for the program. Work is performed without direction, and the candidate will be expected to collaborate broadly across organizations, including extensive interactions with subcontract management.

The candidate will act independently to uncover and resolve issues associated with the development and implementation of large subcontract deliveries supporting operational programs. The candidate will be able to successfully balance a long-term perspective with a practical tactical view. The role will have a high level of customer visibility and performance in this role will lead to program keep-sold objectives and potential new business opportunities or follow-ons.
