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:
We are seeking a professional engineer to assume a key role within the System Power, Analog and Controls Department.

Do you enjoy power converter design?
Do early-career engineers come to you for technical guidance?
Do you have a strong desire to work on projects that are critical to the defense of our nation?

If your answers are yes, we are looking for you to join our team.

Responsibilities to Anticipate:
  • Design, analyze (including thermal considerations), simulate, and test 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 circuit card-level power schemes and develop related requirements.
  • Guide Electronic Computer-Aided Design (ECAD) personnel through PWB layout of power circuitry and technical drawing creation.
  • Perform design work within the bounds of a given schedule, and sometimes define the schedule.
  • Present reviews of technical data to program leadership and technical staff, and guide junior engineers in honing this skill.
An advanced degree in a related field may be substituted for 7 additional years of experience.

Qualifications You Must Have:
  • Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from an accredited University. Accredited Mathematics and Physics BS degrees may also qualify with relevant experience.
  • Minimum of 10 years of professional experience in design, analysis, simulation, and test experience with linear converters.
  • Experience with any two of the following non-isolated converter topologies: buck, boost, buck-boost.
  • Experience with any two of the following isolated converter topologies: flyback, half-bridge, full-bridge, push-pull (design scope must include stability).
  • Professional design, analysis, and test experience with analog electronic design and analysis, including FET, BJT, and Op-amp circuits.
  • Professional experience with performing circuit card assembly-level power architecture trades, including power converter specification development experience.
  • Professional experience guiding Electronic Computer-Aided Design (ECAD) personnel through PWB layout of power circuitry and technical drawing creation (direct experience with such tools is adequate to fulfill this requirement).
  • The ability to obtain and maintain a US security clearance. U.S. citizenship is required as only U.S. citizens are eligible for a security clearance

Qualifications We Value:
  • Familiarity with circuit simulator SIMPLIS and/or analysis tool Mathcad.
  • Experience with Mentor Graphics DxDesigner, and/or Hyperlynx.
  • Experience with acting as a liaison between program and functional management.
  • Experience with digital power control.
  • Experience with military specifications.
  • Experience with transformer and inductor design considerations.
  • Design experience with Electro-Magnetic Interference (EMI) concerns.
  • Design experience with voltages > 400V and/or power > 10kW.
  • Experience with program management tools such as Earned Value.
  • Experience with proposal development.
  • Ability to design to meet concerns of adjacent disciplines, such as thermal, structural, mechanical, reliability, and quality.
  • Ability to be a self-starter and be able to function in a dynamic environment.
  • Strong interpersonal, leadership, communication, and time management skills.
  • Customer-focused.
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.
