Mechanical Design Engineer

RTN 2 (Raytheon IDMS)
Tucson, AZ 85701
About Us:
At Raytheon Missiles & Defense, by combining our vast resources and investments we are able to dedicate ourselves to solving mission-level vs. product-level customer challenges together we can anticipate more, move faster and make a bigger impact on the big picture.
Raytheon Missiles and Defense (RMD), a technology and innovation leader specializing in defense, security and civilian markets, is seeking an experienced Mechanical Engineer within the Airframes and Advanced Effectors mechanical design department, a subset of the Mechanical Products Team.

Are you interested in developing and integrating hardware on the front-end of the business, often employing advanced materials, technology, and approaches in order to provide enabling technology to the customer? Hypersonic systems? Underwater launched systems? Air-launched systems? We have a diverse team and employ engineers with a variety of backgrounds in order to effectively meet a large number of different customer needs on time.

The primary work location will be on-site at the Raytheon Tucson office (or virtually, temporarily); some travel may be required to meet and work with vendors and to support testing and other activities as needed.

Job Summary: The Mechanical Design Engineer will design, integrate, and test mechanical-focused hardware using computer-aided design, mechanical analyses, and consistent coordination and communication across teams in order to ensure successful hardware performance, usually demonstrated through flight tests.

Responsibilities to Anticipate:
  • Work with multi-disciplinary engineers to propose, design. develop, and integrate/test hardware within the Airframes and Advanced Effectors mechanical design department
  • Contribute to one or more of our contract-funded and internally-funded efforts, each of which is at a different phase of development (proposal, design, and integration/test). Engineers are generally assigned to one effort at a time but may work multiple efforts over the course of several years.
  • Communicate with cross-disciplined, diverse engineering team members and suppliers to analyze, model, and document the design technical data package (TDP) and its capabilities and compliance to requirements
  • Work under limited supervision and act as the responsible engineer, often in a project management role over entire projects or processes within an effort. This often requires the ability to delegate and review the work of others
  • An advanced degree can be substituted for additional years of experience as follows: Masters is equal to 2 years of experience or a Ph.D. is equal to 5 years of experience as required for this position.
  • Qualifications You Must Have:
    Education: Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering, Aerospace, Engineering Science, Math, or other Engineering discipline
  • 5+ years of professional experience in mechanical design, development, and/or test of defense-related components or systems
  • Experience with Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint) for technical analysis, data sorting/plotting, and technical documentation
  • The ability to obtain and maintain a US security clearance prior to the start date. U.S. citizenship is required as only U.S. citizens are eligible for a security clearance.
  • Qualifications We Value:
  • Master of Science (MS) in Engineering
  • DoD Secret or Top Secret Clearance
  • Computer-aided Design (CAD) experience in Creo Parametric and Windchill
  • Basic understanding of Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing (GD&T), basic tolerance analyses, and drawing practices and interpretation for mechanical hardware
  • Experience with thermal and structural analyses or with analysts to specify requirements and design to environments
  • Experience in airframe development, electronics packaging, mechanisms, for missiles or similar applications
  • Demonstrated collaboration with cross-disciplined teams, using trust, respect, and innovation to drive results towards a shared vision
  • Experience with effective communication (written and verbal) during collaboration with others in order to document design actions and results, to perform trade studies, and to communicate to program management and customers through presentations and reports
  • Experience heading teams and managing resources (cost, people, and schedule) and delegating tasks and holding others accountable, with or without Earned Value Management (EVM) experience
