Position Description

Dynetics, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Leidos, is seeking a talented Electrical Engineer to join a diverse, highly-skilled team to create unique solutions for complex problems involving advanced sensors and research systems. With offices across the United States engaging in the defense, space, cyber and commercial fields, Dynetics provides responsive, cost effective intelligence, engineering, scientific and IT solutions.

The Advanced Materials Product Group is a researched-focused group of engineers specializing in advanced hardware-based solutions. The Electronic Systems Architect is a key solution-thinker responsible for assessing the feasibility of new opportunities and developing novel approaches that meet challenging technical requirements. The system architect will be the Advanced Materials Product Group’s interface with other electrical design and manufacturing organizations within Dynetics, and they will actively partner with other engineers, project/proposal managers, technicians, and the customer to develop solutions that adhere to a diverse set of requirements. The individual selected for this position will be a self-motivated design engineer proficient in high-level solution definition and detailed implementation that is comfortable with moving between those roles. The individual must be able to work effectively independently or as part of an inter-disciplinary team at any point in the product lifecycle.

The system architect will develop product concepts from internal and/or external customer requirements and produce system definitions and proposals to present those concepts. The system architect will contribute to engineering development throughout the product lifecycle including detailed development, manufacturing, validation, and customer support, as required. The system architect will be responsible for architecting, implementing, and testing electronic systems including power, optics, mixed-signal, FPGA, and microcontroller-based designs. The system architect will be responsible for product/system integration test planning, setup, and execution, as required. Experience with technical trade studies, architecture definition and electronic system design is required. Solution-oriented troubleshooting skills from board level to system level are required. Advanced sensor/scientific instrument system design experience strongly desired. Additional skills such as power distribution network design, VHDL proficiency, and use of applicable simulation tools are a plus.
