Start your future with a new mission; Northrop Grumman Mission Systems. On the Mission Systems Sector team you’ll join our experts in developing systems and solutions that keep our world safe.

Part of our Mission is developing our entry level talent through our Professional Development Program (PDP). The PDP is a rotational program that provides the opportunity to experience a series of different assignments. The assignments will provide valuable experiences that will broaden the participant’s knowledge of the business and help guide each individual in obtaining his/her career goals. The program will support the individual’s growth through training, skill development, and networking opportunities. There will also be opportunities to learn, share experiences, and gain insights by collaborating with some of the best minds in the industry. This program gives its participants the ability to choose their assignments from a variety of departments based on their skills, areas of interest, and availability.

Northrop Grumman is seeking System Engineers for the PDP. This position will be located at our Mission Systems Sector in Rolling Meadows, IL.

The qualified candidate will become part of Northrop Grumman’s Engineering Professional Development Program.

The selected candidate will work in a dynamic, people-focused environment where he/she will interact with colleagues from a variety of organizations at this location.

Description:

Systems Engineering Integration & Test (SEIT) for complex avionics systems in EOIR and RF technology areas. Positions are available in three disciplines in SEIT. This is a great opportunity to work alongside a variety of other Systems, Hardware, and Software engineers to successfully execute on programs.

Integration & Test: Efforts may include generation of test plans, test procedures, test automation, test reports, and execution of integration test activities in System Integration Labs (SILs). As a part of the SEIT team, an Integration & Test engineer gains an understanding of the Systems Engineering process across a product's lifecycle and gains a full appreciation for how the avionics systems operate.

Systems Design: Tasking can include creating and refining Model Based System Engineering products (System behavioral models, Use Case realizations, State Machines, etc.), generation and update of System and sub-system level specifications in DOORS, including requirements traceability, creation of Verification Cross Reference Matrices (VCRM), verification traceability (tracing requirements to test plans/procedures/results), and update and maintenance of system drawings and documents. As a part of the SEIT team, a Systems Design engineer is exposed to the front end Systems Engineering process and coordinates across many disciplines to ensure that the system description and requirements are properly and thoroughly defined and captured.

Modeling & Simulation: Assignments include analysis and trades of product line architectures using analytical models and mission level simulations. A primary task for a modeling and simulations engineer is software development of in-house models and algorithms. Strong domain knowledge combined with valuable software development skills are required to produce the accurate models that drive the critical analysis needed to design our future systems. As a member of a SEIT team, a Model and Simulations engineer gains a deep understanding of how our systems architecture design process meets our mission level goals.
