Northrop Grumman Sr. Principal Systems Engineer in Linthicum, Maryland

At the heart of Defining Possible is our commitment to missions. In rapidly changing global security environments, Northrop Grumman brings informed insights and software-secure technology to enable strategic planning. We're looking for innovators who can help us keep building on our wide portfolio of secure, affordable, integrated, and multi-domain systems and technologies that fuel those missions. By joining in our shared mission, we'll support yours of expanding your personal network and developing skills, whether you are new to the field or an industry thought-leader. At Northrop Grumman, you'll have the resources, support, and team to do some of the best work of your career.

The Northrop Grumman Mission Systems (NGMS) Advanced Processing Solutions Business pushes the boundaries of innovation, redefines the leading edge of exotic new technologies, and drives advances in the sciences. One of our most challenging new fields is Transformational Computing, which combines the unique properties of superconductivity and quantum mechanics to develop radical new energy-efficient computing systems. Our team is chartered with providing the skills to transform computing beyond Moore's Law, advancing development of computer architectures, processing/memory subsystems, and large scale high performance computing systems. You'll work in a fast-paced team environment alongside a broad array of scientists and engineers to make these processing solutions a reality and deliver remarkable new advantages to the warfighter.

Systems Engineers work as a team to perform technical planning, system integration, verification and validation, cost and risk, and supportability and effectiveness analyses for total systems. Analyses are performed at all levels of total system product to include: concept, design, fabrication, test, installation, operation, maintenance and disposal. Ensures the logical and systematic conversion of customer or product requirements into total systems solutions that acknowledge technical, schedule, and cost constraints. Performs functional analysis, timeline analysis, detail trade studies, requirements allocation and interface definition studies.

As part of a Research & Development effort, a Systems Engineer joining this team need to work well in an environment where component/product specifications do not yet exist. They will be part of a Systems Engineering team responsible for translating customer requirements into hardware and software specifications. They will work closely with the development teams to ensure the designs and prototypes are in line with the developed specifications. The Systems Engineering team will also support performance analysis and ensure that any design adjustments remain aligned to the component requirements and specification.

System engineers are involved in all aspects of design, which can include:

  • Developing system and subsystem requirements from user mission needs, and tracking requirements throughout the development process

  • Understanding and utilizing detailed models and simulations of systems for design verification or to enable hardware and software development

  • Working closely with developers to create operational modes which satisfy requirements and maximize system performance

  • Analyzing data from laboratory as it applies to and influences design solutions

  • Formally verifying that solutions meet requirements


Basic Qualifications:

  • Bachelor's Degree or higher in a STEM discipline (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) in Physics, Mathematics, Computer, or Electrical Engineering or a similar technical discipline with 9 years of related experience, or 7 years with a Master's Degree, or 4 years with a PhD.

  • Professional hands on experience in systems engineering tools including requirements management tools such as Jama

  • System requirements development

  • Understanding detailed models and simulations of electronic circuits or systems for design verification

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Master's Degree Systems Engineering

  • Software or Hardware design experience

  • Experience with analysis, design, fabrication, or test of superconducting electronics
