The Systems Engineering Center (SEC) is seeking a Tracking, Telemetry & Commanding (TT&C) Systems Engineer for the Space Systems (SS) Mission Area. The TT&C Systems Engineer will be involved in developing the Tracking, Telemetry & Commanding subsystem for a high-powered, Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite mission, for which Raytheon is the prime contractor. The satellite bus (and the TT&C subsystem) will be designed and delivered by an industrial partner – so this position will focus more on the systems engineering and management functions and less on performing detailed hardware design. The successful candidate should also expect to be immersed in a fast-paced and team-based environment where an individual with talent and initiative stand-out and thrive.
