About Us:

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.

Job Summary:

The Low Voltage Power Products (LVPP) Department supports key Raytheon Missiles and Defense (RMD) products, by providing mission-critical designs relating to power conversion, motor controls, flight termination systems, telemetry, and other analog domains.
We are looking for junior to mid-level engineers who have control electronics knowledge to help design robust control systems for important national defense products.

Responsibilities to Anticipate:
  • Design, analyze, simulate, test, and document control electronics (and related analog) circuitry. This circuitry will dominantly involve motor drive, sensor interface, and controller circuits. Main emphasis is on board-mounted control end use applications.
  • Assist in architecting at the circuit card level.
  • Help to see circuit card development through its design phases, from requirements definition through initial integration testing.
  • Drive to meet schedule concerns. Define schedules for circuit level tasking.
  • Guide ECAD drafters through layout and routing activities, with moderate support from senior engineers. Assist in layer stackup definition.
  • Function as an individual contributor. Understand the role of a small team lead.
  • Engage in personal technical growth.
  • Clearly present your work product to functional and program leadership.

Qualifications You Must Have:
  • Bachelors in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics (STEM)
  • 2+ years of experience in three or more of the following areas:
  • Design, analysis, test, and simulation experience with controls and driving one or more of the following motor types: Brushed, BLDC or PMSM.
  • Experience with analog electronics design, including at least two of the following: FET/BJT logic level, op-amp, high/low/band pass filters, clock/data termination, and comparator circuits, along with an understanding of how these circuits are utilized in control electronics.
  • Experience with the ECAD process, and a conceptual understanding of the layout and routing concerns specific to control electronics.
  • Experience with designing at the circuit level to meet concerns of adjacent disciplines, such as thermal, structural, mechanical, reliability, and quality.
  • Experience utilizing specifications used to drive design decisions.
  • The ability to obtain and maintain a US security clearance. U.S. citizenship is required as only U.S. citizens are eligible for a security clearance

Qualifications We Value:
  • Bachelors or higher in Electrical Engineer preferred.
  • A conceptual familiarity with one or more of the following sensor types: magnetic encoders, resolvers, Hall sensors.
  • Experience conducting trade studies, and an awareness of how trade studies are used in control systems architecture definition.
  • A conceptual familiarity with EMI Filter design and analysis considerations in control electronics circuits.
  • Experience communicating and documenting technical topics at the small team level.
  • Exposure to digital control electronics design, analysis, simulation, and test. Includes familiarity with embedded systems architecture and firmware development for digital control systems.
  • Exposure to wide bandgap devices (SiC, GaN) in control electronics designs.
  • Exposure to circuit/system simulator SaberRD, and MATLAB Simulink. Knowledge of dSPACE is not required but desirable.
  • Exposure to Mentor Graphics DxDesigner, and/or Hyperlynx.
  • Exposure to acting as a liaison between program and functional management in a cross-matrixed organization.
  • Exposure to military specifications.
  • Exposure to design considerations for voltages > 100V.
  • Exposure to program management tools such as Earned Value.
  • Exposure to proposal development.
  • Self-starter, a quick learner, be able to function in a dynamic environment, and have good time management skills. Should have an appreciation for how successful teams are structured.
