Raytheon Technologies Sr. Components Engineer / Principal Components Engineer - Radiation Hardened in Huntsville, Alabama

At Raytheon Missiles & Defense, by combining our vast resources and investments, we are able to dedicate ourselves to solving mission-level vs. product-level customer challenges – together we can anticipate more, move faster and make a bigger impact on the big picture.

Job Summary:

The selected candidate will perform and/or assist in the performance of Parts Engineering, Components Engineering or Applications engineering tasks supporting programs in the proposal, System Design Description, Low Rate Initial Production (SDD, LRIP), production and support phases. Position will require day to day interface with designers, product development engineering, Electronic Computer Aided Design (ECAD) function, program management, and other disciplines. Will be required to determine program statement of work (SOW) and other defined customer component application requirements. Determine program component environmental / characteristic application requirements. Provide technology insertion and parts selection/standardization guidance while adhering to business, component parametric, application environmental and circuit application constraints. Interface with multiple internal stakeholders and external suppliers/manufacturers to develop component risk and verification delineation. Create component verification data packages with supporting data. Provide applications engineering support to multiple program integrated product teams (IPT's.) Facilitate component selection and libraries application through the coordination and generation of the program bill of material (BOM) in a collaboration toolset. Presentation of component standardization, design library, obsolescence management and termination finish risk results in support of program preliminary and critical design reviews (PDR’s / CDR’s.)

Please Note: This position can be a Sr. Engineer or Principal Engineer based on the candidate's qualifications as they relate to the skills, experience and responsibility requirements for the position
