System Engineer


We are seeking a System Engineer for our customer in Fort Meade, Maryland. The System Engineer must be a U.S. Citizen and have an active Top Secret/SCI clearance with a Full-Scope Polygraph. The System Engineer analyzes user’s, concept of operations documents, and high level system architectures to develop system specifications. The System Engineer analyzes system requirements and leads design and development activities. Ultimate responsibility for the technical integrity of work performed and deliverables associated with the Systems Engineering area of responsibility.

System Engineer Capabilities:

Development of sections of systems engineering documentation such as System Engineering Plans, Initial Capabilities Documents, specifications, and Interface Control Documents
Manage systems 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
Development of system functions, and allocation of the same to individual hardware, software, facility, and personnel components
The System Engineer will coordinate the resolution of action items from Configuration Control Board (CCB) meetings, design reviews, program reviews, and test reviews that require cross-discipline coordination
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
Generate alternative system concepts, physical architectures, and design solutions
Establishing and gaining approval of the definition of a system or component under development (designs, interfaces, test procedures, etc.) that provides a common reference point for hardware and software developers
System Engineer develops Information Assurance Services (Confidentiality, Integrity, Non repudiation, and Availability); Basic Information Assurance Mechanisms (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)
Technical direction for the development, engineering, interfacing, integration, and testing of specific components of complex hardware/software systems to include elicitation, analysis and functional allocation, conducting systems 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
Comprehensive SOA solutions
Operational view, technical standards view, and system and services view for architectures using applicable DoDAF standards
Develop scenarios (threads) and an Operational Concept that describes the interactions between the system, the user, and the environment, that satisfies operational, support, maintenance, and disposal needs
Conduct quantitative analysis in non-functional system performance areas like Reliability, Maintainability, Vulnerability, Survivability, Produceability, etc.
Capture all interface designs in a common interface control format, and store interface data in a commonly accessible repository
Prepare time-line analysis diagrams illustrating the flow of time-dependent functions
Establish a process to formally and proactively control and manage changes to consider impacts prior to commitment to change, gain stakeholder buy-in, eliminate ambiguity, ensure traceability to source requirements, and track and settle open actions
In conjunction with system stakeholders, plan the verification efforts of new and unproven designs early in the development life cycle to ensure compliance to Support the planning and test analysis of the DoD Certification/Accreditation Process (as well as other Government Certification and Accreditation (C&A) processes)
Support the development and review of Joint Capability Integration Development System (JCIDS) documents (i.e., Initial Capability Document, Capabilities Description Document, IA Strategy)
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
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
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
The Systems Engineer will participate 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
System design alternatives that consider life cycle cost, reuse, complexity, risk, system expansion, and growth
