This is a Systems Engineer Senior Manager role for Orion Ground Operations Development and Execution

The Systems Engineer Manager is also responsible for providing support to the NASA and its Ground Ops contractor during the actual execution of the operational requirements. This involves working closely with NASA and its Ground Ops contractor and extensive coordination between the Lockheed Martin and MPCV hardware owners during the execution of the operations to ready the vehicle for flight
