What if you could find a position that is tailor made for your mix of development, engineering, analysis and communication skills? That's why we need you, an experienced subject matter expert, to help us evaluate and guide system architectures leveraging Model-Based System Engineering (MBSE) principals, and modeling & simulation analysis and expertise. This is an opportunity to build your experience using the latest open source tools, trends, and techniques on technical issues supporting the mission of our Intelligence Community Customer. Our Chief Architect team is responsible for leading and coordinating ground enterprise lifecycle systems engineering activities including requirements, CONOPS, and architecture development in the remote sensing domain for current and future systems. The individual will provide Model-Based System Engineering (MBSE) support implementing MBSE principles for system requirements, design, analysis, verification, and validation activities beginning with the conceptual design, continuing throughout the development and life-cycle of the project. This includes helping to champion the transition and implementation of MBSE processes and standards across a large ground enterprise organization and evaluating tools for inclusion in the MBSE framework. The individual will facilitate Integrated Product Teams (IPT's), Engineering working groups and brown bags that will promote, review and assess the maturity of engineering Artifacts, CONOPS, Interfaces, and Architecture products within the MBSE framework. This position also provides project management overseeing and assessing a multi-organizational software development effort for the organization's modeling and simulation project leveraging ModSim. This requires collaboration with other engineers to develop end-to-end models of complex systems to include architecture and behavior of the system using Systems Modeling Language (SysML). The candidate will provide subject matter expertise and MBSE best practices to teams coordinating conops and architecture products, establishing and translating requirements into features, assessing system and segment schedule and risks, leading readiness and release planning events in support of system and acquisition-level ground milestones, and supporting agile test and devops verification strategies and integration of new systems and initiatives in support of expanded GEOINT or SIGINT mission capabilities. The selected candidate will have the aptitude to assess MBSE and SE processes and create efficiencies continuously, and may lead projects for systems team work, have frequent client interactions, and support system and mission strategy development across the various ground offices. The candidate will have daily interaction with the customer and supporting contractors and will need to follow customer standards and processes as the program matures through the life-cycle. Candidate will interact with multiple Acquisition Offices (AOs) and facilitate risk and action closure with Acquisition Offices and users, and support technical consultation, meeting coordination, and support to recommendation briefings.
