At Raytheon Missiles & Defense, you have the opportunity to try new things and make a bigger difference across a broader end-to-end solution, a richer technology and product set, an expanded range of disciplines, a growing global footprint and a more diverse team of colleagues and customers. You will be on the front lines as we trailblaze new approaches, push the boundaries of innovation and chart a course to a tomorrow you can be proud to have a hand in creating.
The Guidance Electronics Team provides Electrical Systems Engineering to develop Guidance Electronics solutions for products across the Raytheon Missiles and Defense (RMD) portfolio. Our team develops missile Guidance Electronics Hardware. Our core electrical engineering responsibilities include architecture, analysis, requirements, integration, and test. Our core electrical engineering technologies include RF/RADAR, Navigation/IMU/GPS, Digital, and Power. We partner with several Electrical Product Team departments that provide the detailed design of our electrical products as well as missile level systems teams.
The Guidance Electronics Team is searching for an Electrical Systems Engineer with experience in developing RF subsystems, Radars or RF seekers. The role of the RF subsystem engineer is to design, develop and maintain RF architectures. Architecture development includes requirements, evaluation and modelling. RF subsystem engineer collaborates with missile level system engineers in developing requirements for the subsystem. They perform evaluation and modeling to decompose requirements for RF sub-assemblies and component designs.
Responsibilities to Anticipate:
Work environment is primarily in an office, but may include labs, field work, or a combination.
Assignments may include examination of hardware designs, subsystems, and components; architecting new electronic systems; developing and documenting subsystem requirements and test plans; peer reviews of designs as a subject matter expert; presentations to peers, management, and government customers; and root-cause failure investigations.
Missile Systems has a strong culture of mentoring; it is expected that employees will be both mentors and mentees.
Assignments may require supporting multiple programs.
Assignments may require some travel, including foreign travel.

Qualifications We Value:
Missile Radar and RF seeker subsystems typically contain antennas, analog RF circuit cards, digital circuit cards, and configurable logic so the ideal candidate will have a background in detailed design and troubleshooting of one or more of these components in RF applications. Ideal candidates will also have some experience in systems engineering and architecture and have a desire to grow into a guidance section architect.
Experience working with missiles or similar systems.
Knowledge of mixed signal electronics.
Ability to manage cross-functional teams.
Ability to drive suppliers in meeting commitments.
Knowledge of DOD Hardware development process (knowledge of design gates).
Practical experience in all phases of the product development lifecycle.
