Raytheon Systems Engineer II in Tucson, Arizona

This position can be a Salary Grade G07 or Salary Grade G08 based on the candidate's qualifications as they relate to the skills, experience and responsibility requirements. Do you actively seek out problems to solve? Do you love helping people out? If your answer is an enthusiastic yes then you may be the person we want to join our team as a System Safety Engineer (SSE) for Test Equipment (TE). The System Safety Engineering Department is seeking a System Safety Engineer II for Test Equipment safety evaluations. System Safety Engineering ensures our systems safely and perform their required mission functions through their required environments while meeting overall cost constraints. This position will be supporting programs specifically by insuring that our TE products are safely designed, built, integrated and used for lab and production testing; specifically, DoD4145.26m DoD Contractor Manual for Ammunition and Explosives, MIL-STD-1472 for Human Engineering to ensure the design is safe for human use, and explosives squib meter technology to implement safety requirements into the TE design and processes. What hazards are presented to the operator of the TE while testing? Does the Unit Under Test (UUT) contain explosives or energetics? Are the system interlocks to protect against inadvertent activation of the explosives or energy sources adequate? Are high voltages present and if so, is there adequate protection to prevent inadvertent exposure during operation or maintenance of the TE? Is there a hazard for Electromagnetic Emissions exposure? These are the questions the SSE for TE answers every day. Entry level engineers will work under the direction and mentoring of senior TE Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) and their engineering leadership as members of the System Safety Engineering Department. So what does a SSE for TE do? They analyze drawings, Bills of Materials, UUT configurations and work instructions to identify the hazards presented to the operator or maintainer during use of the TE. They create safety reports to document the hazards presented and design and verify the safety interlocks that prevents the hazard from becoming a mishap. They are responsible for interacting with the approval authorities until the production or lab use approval is obtained. The TE SSE regularly interfaces with lead engineers, Operations, and Program Management across all RMS products to perform these safety analyses. The TE SSE requires a high degree of self-motivation and ability to effectively interface with co-workers across all RMS product lines, Engineering, Operations and Safety Review Boards. Required Skills: Ability to take an analytical approach and utilize technical knowledge to solve challenges with optimal solutions Experience with interfacing between multiple disciplines to gain full understanding of the architecture and design Experience reading, reviewing, and understanding technical engineering drawings for identification of energetics used within product configurations Understanding of DoD4145.26M for employee protection measures for production and lab testing Practical application of MIL-STD-1472 design guidelines Knowledge of squib meter technology and associated industry standards Minimum of 4 years experience with test equipment design to include requirements verification and testing.
