  • Comfortably work with dispersed teams and government stakeholders, outside of the company
  • Create process diagrams and continuously implement MBSE into software teams
  • Generate systems engineering CDRLs from a model
  • Execute pilot projects collecting metrics that quantify the benefits of MBSE


  • 1-4 years of applicable industry experience. 2 years experience may be supplemented with a Masters of Science in Systems Engineering, or a related technical field
  • A Bachelor of Science degree in Systems Engineering, or a related technical field
  • Working knowledge of systems development lifecycles (V, Waterfall, Agile)
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills
  • Position requires U.S. Citizenship and the ability to obtain a DoD Secret security clearance; active clearance is preferable

Additional Skills of Interest (not required):

  • Experience building all 9 SysML diagrams
