Principal Electrical Engineer - Analog / Power Design

RTN 2 (Raytheon IDMS)
Tucson, AZ 85701
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 senior level engineers who have power electronics knowledge to help design robust power systems for important national defense products.

Responsibilities to Anticipate:
  • Design, analyze, simulate, test, and document power conversion circuitry potentially utilizing any standard power conversion topologies (non-isolated and isolated) with the main emphasis on board mounted power end use applications.
  • Architect at the circuit card stack level.
  • See circuit card and stack development through its design phases, from requirements definition through initial integration testing.
  • Drive to meet schedule concerns. Define schedules for circuit, circuit card, and stack level tasking.
  • Guide ECAD drafters and junior engineers through layout and routing activities. Define layer stackup definitions. Drive decisions relating to creepage and clearance.
  • Lead medium sized teams to success with schedule, budget, and technical execution.
  • Engage in personal technical growth, and facilitate technical growth in peers and junior engineers. Help to understand what opportunities are needed to mature the organization on the technical front.
  • Clearly present work product of your team to functional and program leadership. Manage related risk discussions. Guide junior engineers on technical presentation skills.
Qualifications You Must Have:
  • While a Bachelors (or higher) in Electrical Engineering is preferred, related Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics (STEM) Bachelors (or higher) may also be considered.
  • 8 years of related experience.
  • Must have professional experience with seven or more of the following:
    • Design, analysis, test, and simulation experience with linear converters, and familiarity with all of the following non-isolated converter topologies: buck, boost, buck-boost. Must also have professional design, analysis, and simulation experience with at least one, and conceptual familiarity (professional experience preferred) with all of the following isolated converter topologies: flyback, half-bridge, full-bridge, forward, push-pull, resonant. Conceptual familiarity and experience must include stability. Must have understanding of switching converter control techniques and modes such as voltage mode, peak and average current modes, their advantages and disadvantages.
    • Using tools such as MATLAB, MathCAD, Mathematica, or other similar tools. Must have experience developing templates with these tools, and experience reviewing others' work in these tools.
    • Transformer and inductor design, analysis, test, and simulation considerations in power electronics circuits. Must have a professional experience with core material properties and their selection.
    • EMI Filter design, analysis, test, and simulation considerations in power electronics circuits.
    • Conducting trade studies relating to power electronics architecture at the circuit card stack level.
    • Guiding drafters through the ECAD process, including the layout and routing concerns specific to non-isolated and isolated power electronics.
    • Designing at the circuit card stack level to meet concerns of adjacent disciplines, such as thermal, structural, mechanical, reliability, and quality.
    • Utilizing and creating electrical design specifications. Must have exposure to requirements definition early in the design cycle.
    • Leading small teams (formally or informally), and experience working with other team leads toward a larger goal. Must have exposure to managing customer relationships.
    • Communicating and documenting technical topics at the small and large team level, and experience presenting to upper levels of management.
  • The ability to obtain and maintain a U.S. security clearance. U.S. citizenship is required as only U.S. citizens are eligible for a security clearance.
Qualifications We Value:
  • Intermediate professional experience with:
    • Digital power electronics design, analysis, simulation, and test. Includes familiarity with embedded systems architecture and firmware development for digitally controlled power supplies.
    • Wide bandgap devices (SiC, GaN) in power electronics designs.
    • Circuit simulator SIMPLIS, and/or system simulator SABER.
    • Mentor Graphics DxDesigner, and/or Hyperlynx.
    • Acting as a liaison between program and functional management in a cross-matrixed organization.
    • Military specifications.
    • Design considerations for voltages > 400V and/or power > 10kW.
    • Three-phase power systems, power factor control, and inverter/rectifier development.
    • Motor control development.
    • Program management tools such as Earned Value.
    • Proposal development.
  • Should be a self-starter, a quick learner, be able to function in a dynamic environment, and have good time management skills.

What We Offer:

Whether youre just starting out on your career journey or are an experienced professional, we offer a robust total rewards package that goes above and beyond with compensation; healthcare, wellness, retirement and work/life benefits; career development and recognition programs.
