Clearance: TS/SCI FSP

Location: Ft. Meade





Required Skills:

The Systems Engineer should meet the following educational/experience requirements:

• Twenty (20) years’ experience as a System Engineer in programs and contracts of similar scope, type and complexity

• Demonstrated experience in planning and leading Systems Engineering efforts

• Bachelor’s degree in System Engineering, Computer Science, Information Systems, Engineering Science, Engineering Management, or related discipline from an accredited college or university. Five (5) years of additional System Engineering experience may be substituted for a Bachelor’s degree.

• Virtualization experience administration and provisioning (VMware preferred)

• Experience with VM provisioning, vSphere troubleshooting, and vSphere administration


The Systems Engineer will provide support with the following activities:

Contribute to the development of sections of systems engineering documentation such as System Engineering Plans, Initial Capabilities Documents, Requirements Specifications, and Interface Control Documents

Manage system requirements and derived requirements to ensure the delivery of production systems that are compatible with the defined system architecture(s) – Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF), Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), etc.

Assist with the development of system requirements, functional requirements, and allocation of the same to individual hardware, software, facility, and personnel components

Coordinate the resolution of action items from Configuration Control Board (CCB) meetings, design reviews, and test reviews that require cross-discipline coordination

Participate in an Integrated Product Team to design new capabilities based upon evaluation of all necessary development and operational considerations

Participate in the development of systems engineering documentation such as System Engineering Plans, Initial Capabilities Documents, Requirements Specifications, and Interface Control Documents

Participate in interface definition, design, and changes to the configuration between affected groups and individuals throughout the life cycle

Allocate real-time process budgets and error budgets to systems and subsystem components

Derive from the system requirements an understanding of stakeholder needs, functions that may be logically inferred and implied as essential to system effectiveness

Generate alternative system concepts, physical architectures, and design solutions

Participate in establishing and gaining approval of the definition of a system or component under development (requirements, designs, interfaces, test procedures, etc) that provides a common reference point for hardware and software developers

Define the methods, processes, and evaluation criteria by which the systems, subsystems and work products are verified against their requirements in a written plan

Develop system design solution that satisfies the system requirements and fulfills the functional analysis

Develop derived requirements for Information Assurance Services (Confidentiality, Integrity, Non-Repudiation, and Availability); Basic Information Assurance Mechanism (e.g., identification, authentication, access control, accountability); and Security Mechanism Technology (passwords, cryptography, discretionary access control, mandatory access control, hashing, key management, etc.)

Review and provide input to program and contract Work Breakdown Structure (WBS), work packages, and the Integrated Master Plan (IMP)

Provide technical direction for the development, engineering, interfacing, integration, and testing of specific components of complex hardware/software systems to include requirements elicitation, analysis and functional allocation, conducting system requirements reviews, developing concepts of operation and interface standards, developing system architectures, and performing technical/non-technical assessment and management as well as end-to-end flow analysis

Implement comprehensive SOA solutions

Develop operational view, technical standards view, and system and services view for architectures using application DoDAF standards

Conduct and/or approve end-to-end system trade analysis to optimize system operations over its life cycle through the proper balance of non-functional system performance areas Improve standard integration strategies based upon rationale for previous decisions that resulted in improved integration performance

Fully define interfaces in terms of origination, destination, stimulus, and data characteristics for software; and electrical and mechanical characteristics for hardware

Use validated models, simulations, and prototyping to mitigate risk and reduce cost of system development

Develop alternative courses of action, workarounds, and fall-back positions with a recommended course of action for each risk, and monitor and re-evaluate risks at appropriate milestones.

Monitors risks using Earned Value Management (EVM) data

Maintain knowledge of current and evolving agency, national, and international standards applicable to the system development of interest.

Apply and enforce use of suitable standards to ensure consistency and interoperability of developer hardware and software

Ensure effective, periodic review and control of the evolving configuration of a system, both hardware and software components and associated documentation, during the life of the system

Serve as a member of the CCB

As a participant within an Analysis of Alternatives (AoA) effort, recommend a preferred solution based on selection criteria adjusted for reasonableness and validity of assumptions, technology limitations, environmental impact, and life cycle costs

Develop system design alternatives that consider life cycle cost, reuse, complexity, risk, system expansion, and growth
