Job Summary:
We are currently seeking a Senior Principal Systems Engineer to join the Multi-Function Radio Frequency System (MFRFS) Systems Engineering team in McKinney, TX. The MFRFS program is primarily an Army funded program specializing in the creation of compact stationary and on-the-move ground-based radars, which search and track a variety of ground and airborne targets. These technologies are paramount for early-warning systems, missile defense, and offensive counter-measures that help keep the warfighter safe. In particular, this job assignment will be with the algorithms development / modes team on the MFRFS program.

Therein, the Senior Principal Systems Engineer will be a member of a highly-visible team of engineers supporting systems engineering, algorithms development, and test expertise to the radar systems program. The Senior Principal Systems Engineer will also regularly interface with customers, the Systems Integration and Testing (SI&T), Software, Firmware, Whole Life, and Built-In-Test teams to ensure that proper design algorithms will be implemented properly and can have interoperable use on the Ku-band Radio Frequency System (KuRFS) radar product suite.

There's no such thing as a perfect candidate, so don't hold back. Your qualifications could add tremendous value to our team. Our customers come from all different backgrounds, and so do our employees. If you're passionate about what you could accomplish here, we'd love to hear from you.
