Lead SoS Performance Engineer

Aberdeen, MD

MITREs Systems Performance Engineering department seeks highly motivated performance engineering professionals with a focus in the areas of systems performance engineering and system-of-systems engineering. This is a challenging opportunity to deliver system engineering technical expertise to a variety of sponsor organizations in support of improving performance at a scale beyond individual systems. This is also an opportunity to work in MITREs System Engineering Technical Center, a division of the MITRE Corporation that seeks to pursue research, development, and application of System Engineering practices.

Our department works to solve problems in the public interest, in partnership with the numerous government branches. We also actively conduct independent research of interest in support and conjunction with government and academia partners.

We seek individuals who have skills and experience in working to address the performance of systems interacting with other systems by design, evolution, direction, or necessity. We seek system engineering practitioners who have undertaken challenges to express and measure system-of-system performance quantitatively and qualitatively through modeling, data collection, and analytical methods, processes, and tools.

Critical Skills:

System Performance Engineering
- Provide end-to-end technical analysis of systems and mission performance.
- Apply model oriented and evidence-based approaches to performance analysis.
- Conduct engineering trade-off analysis and feasibility studies, and assess proof-of-concept implementations of system for performance attributes
- Assist government sponsors by applying rigorous analysis of the characteristics of systems including comparative analyses of current systems and planned designs, identification of the impact of potential business process or system enhancements, and optimization of design and architecture choices related to functional and nonfunctional performance attributes, with specialization in cybersecurity, mission assurance, and system resilience
- Conduct analysis of system capabilities and performance to prepare recommendations for performance measures and metrics.
- Take responsibility for project deliverables-including definition, completion, and technical quality.

System of Systems Engineering
- Experience in describing and/or modeling system of system context
- Experience in establishing technical vision and roadmaps for migration and evolution of systems-of-systems
- Applied practices of defining system of system functions and non-functional attributes
- Development and documentation system-of-systems reference architectures and architectural patterns
- Experience in modeling/analyzing system interdependencies and behavioral influences

U.S. government issued SECRET-level security clearance and ability to obtain and maintain a TS/SCI w/ FSP
Required Qualifications:
