Use state-of-the-art systems modeling languages, methods, and tools to develop and evolve complex system/system-of-systems architectures and technical solutions
Enable the creation, sharing, and understanding of architecture and systems engineering models and artifacts to support more effective and timely decisions
Define capability and interoperability gaps, overlaps, opportunities, and constraints
Use systems models to assess the impact of proposed changes on component or constituent systems
Provide model-based analysis and recommendations for capability modernization and investment decisions
Enable process and data integration across a program / organization and with mission partners through the use of model-based processes, methods, artifacts, tools, and analysis
Train and educate sponsor and MITRE personnel on the proper use of systems models across the architecture and engineering continuum of practice to meet functional requirements and mission needs
Work within an evolving programmatic environment with evolving requirements and capability goals

Required Qualifications:
Eight+ years of experience in developing and evolving enterprise information environments through the practical application of systems architecting and systems engineering best practices

Experience building systems models, conducting analysis, and providing recommendations within a team environment on multiple projects
Experience applying modeling, analysis, and design activities to support planning and decision-making to improve / transform a system / system-of-systems environment
Demonstrated experience in use of Systems Modeling Language (SysML) and systems modeling methods, such as Object-Oriented Systems Engineering Method (OOSEM)
Demonstrated experience with at least one systems modeling tool: (preferred) NoMagic, MagicDraw or IBM Rational Rhapsody; others considered if applicable
Experience reporting on capabilities and options through the lens of architecture and engineering analysis delivered in a standardized way through model-based approaches

Preferred Qualifications:
MS or PhD in a technical discipline, such as Systems Engineering, Computer Science, Computer Information Systems, Statistics, or Mathematics
Experience in the practical application of systems architecting and model-based systems engineering (MBSE)
Knowledge and understanding of the structures, behaviors, and constraints associated with a system / system-of-systems environment
Experience with architecture frameworks, such as DoDAF, UAF, and TOGAF, and related modeling profiles, such as Unified Profile for DoDAF and MODAF (UPDM)
Knowledge and understanding of reference architectures and their use
