The candidate will also apply their knowledge of various MBSE methodologies to create models based on the stakeholder's needs.

The candidate shall have a detailed understanding of the Systems Modeling Language (SysML) and Unified Architecture Framework (UAF) and have experience building SysML and UAF diagrams in Cameo Systems Modeler (or MagicDraw). Experience modeling and implementing MBSE on new or legacy systems is a must. The candidate shall have experience creating custom report generation templates, macros, and derived properties in Cameo Systems Modeler. The candidate shall also possess, at a minimum, the OMG-Certified Systems Modeling Professional - Model Builder Intermediate (OCSMP-MBI) certification, have exceptional soft-skills, and be able to clearly articulate what the benefits of MBSE are to non-technical decision makers.

  • Experience implementing MBSE on new and legacy systems.
  • Experience with Cameo Systems Modeler or MagicDraw.
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills and the ability to clearly articulate the benefits of MBSE to various stakeholders (e.g., manager, executive, engineer).
  • Ability to articulate the process of creating models for legacy and new systems.
  • OCSMP Model Builder Intermediate certification; OCSMP Model Builder Advanced certification is preferable.
  • Position requires U.S. Citizenship and the ability to obtain a DoD Secret security clearance.

Additional Skills of Interest (not required):

  • INCOSE Certified Systems Engineering Professional (CSEP) certification.
