  • Support production and provides technical solutions, including involvement in factory build, and test and associated build troubleshooting.

  • Conduct systems analysis and design using tools such as CATIA (CAD/CAM), Matlab / Simulink and FLOMASTER (performance and simulations).

  • Contribute in design reviews and engage suppliers. Utilize project management tools to ensure project success and timeliness (e.g. scheduling, technical risk oversight, deliverables tracking).

  • Define verification methods such as component, system-level, and participate in laboratory and airplane testing.

  • Define data to enable certification of Boeing products with regulatory agencies (FAA, EASA, and other national agencies).

  • Develop approaches in troubleshooting and resolution of in-service issues including field assessments.

  • Support requirements development and define systems architecture. Work with aerospace system suppliers to ensure effective systems performance, integration, and to ensure customer satisfaction

Supports the development and documentation of mechanical and fluid system and thermal environment requirements to establish the system design. Supports the development, maintenance or modification of system, component and installation designs/proposals to provide design documentation to downstream groups. Performs and documents analyses to validate and verify systems and components meet requirements and specifications. Contributes to supplier development, test and production activities and directs the supplier to optimize integration and achieve program goals. Supports system components' designs/proposals standards to provide installation and detail documentation. Trains others. Works under general direction.

Preferred and Desired Experience:

  • Degree and typical experience in engineering classification: Bachelor's and 9 or more years' experience, Master's degree with 7 or more years' experience or PhD degree with experience.
