At Raytheon Technologies (RTX), we are defining the future of aerospace and defense with ambitious technologies that push the limits of known science. Our technologies help our customers take on the world's biggest challenges. Together we are advancing research and development in both the defense and commercial aerospace sectors.

The Whole Life Engineering Directorate (WLE) is responsible for ensuring our products are Safe, Reliable, Maintainable, and delivered on time. WLE consists of multiple disciplines that support engineering, our program offices and our customers. Our WLE disciplines participate in the total life cycle of our products from conception to deactivation. Our focus area is product support, which includes the following disciplines: reliability, system safety, and supportability.

The System Safety Engineering Department is seeking candidates for a Senior System Safety Engineer II position, located in Tucson, AZ.

Entry-to-mid level engineers will work under the direction and mentoring of senior Safety Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) and their Engineering Leadership in handling System Safety Engineering tasks as members of the System Safety Engineering Department.

System Safety Engineering ensures our Raytheon Technologies (RTX) products safely perform their required mission functions throughout their required lifecycle environments, while also meeting overall cost and schedule constraints. This position supports programs specifically by working with experienced System Safety practitioners and missile engineering personnel to ensure that our products are designed with safety in mind.

What are the hazards in our products and what are all the energetics (explosives, gas vessels, lasers, springs, lithium batteries, etc.) contained within them? Do we have all the data and information needed to develop a safety assessment and support U.S. Government Safety Review Board approval? SSE answers these questions on a daily basis.

So what does a SSE do? They analyze engineering drawings, Bill of Materials (BOM), procedures, and work instructions to identify hazards; as well as safety significant components, subsystems, and interfaces (to include software, firmware, hardware, procedures and supporting training). The SSE develops and submits safety data to the proper safety approval authorities and archives the documents and supporting data within an internal document management system. The SSE are responsible for interacting with the Program Management, Engineering, EHS, and government approval authorities from program startup operations, until safety approvals are obtained, through Production and demilitarization and disposal activities. The SSE requires a high degree of self-motivation and effective ability to interface with co-workers across all RMS product lines, Engineering, Operations and Supply Chain Management.

Key Responsibilities:
  • Perform MIL-STD-882E System Safety Program System Safety engineering tasks and analyses, applying technical knowledge to meet Raytheon and customer requirements
  • Interpretation of system requirements, customer specifications and military standards to develop appropriate safety requirements for hazard mitigation or elimination
  • Design verification (fault tree analyses, hazard analyses, sneak circuit analyses, software system safety analyses)
  • Exercise considerable latitude in technical decisions to meet customer requirements relevant to the System Safety program
  • Prepare internal and customer reports describing various analyses relevant to the System Safety program
  • Represent the System Safety Engineering Department as a member of the program, responsible for identifying key issues and addressing them to achieve optimal technical solutions
  • Take an analytical approach and utilize technical knowledge to solve challenges with optimal solutions
  • Collaboratively interface with and function across multiple disciplines to gain a full understanding of the product architecture and design
  • Some U.S. domestic travel may be required.
U.S. Citizenship status is required, as this position will need a U.S. Security Clearance within day 1 of employment.

Required Skills, Education, and Experience:
  • US Citizenship
  • B.S. in Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM); Desired: ABET is the preferred, although not required, accreditation standard
  • A minimum of six (6) years of professional systems safety engineering experience (not including internships)
  • Proficient in DoD System Safety standard practice: MIL-STD-882E
  • Experience reading, reviewing, and understanding technical engineering drawings for the identification of energetics and associated safety significant components used in product configurations
  • MS Office: Word, Excel, PowerPoint
Desired Skills, Education, and Experience:
  • M.S. in Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM); Desired: ABET is the preferred, although not required, accreditation standard
  • Eight (8) years of professional systems safety engineering experience (not including internships)
  • Have experience with software and firmware development to include: C, C++, Java, VHDL, and assembly languages
  • Self-starter with the ability to independently pursue technical information and problem solve
  • Experience with application of Emotional Intelligence concepts, techniques
  • Multi-task in a fast-paced work environment
This position requires either a U.S. Person or a Non-U.S. Person who is eligible to obtain any required Export Authorization.

This position requires the eligibility to obtain a security clearance. Non-US citizens may not be eligible to obtain a security clearance. The Defense Industrial Security Clearance Office (DISCO), an agency of the Department of Defense, handles and adjudicates the security clearance process. Security clearance factors include, but are not limited to, allegiance to the US, foreign influence, foreign preference, criminal conduct, security violations and drug involvement. Employment is contingent on other factors, including, but not limited to, background checks and drug screens. Additional information can be found here: All about Security Clearances
