The Opportunity

You must have experience managing complex source and derived requirements for a complex aircraft program through requirement validation and verification activities from development to integration. You will work hand-in-hand with the program team and technical disciplines as a requirements expert, and reinforce the process for requirement capture and management for key technical disciplines (i.e. vehicle configuration, mechanical systems, electrical systems, powerplant, structures or software).

This role will require someone who is capable of guiding assigned technical discipline teams through the requirement capture and management process, and providing exceptional support to those teams in validation and verification efforts of each requirement.

  • Provide expert-level support to discipline teams in preparation for requirement verification activities and ensuring verification artifacts are captured and traceable to the requirements
  • Generate, manage and release requirement specifications
  • Manage proposed requirement changes and represent system requirements engineering in change board activities and design review meetings
  • Act as a lead source of support on issues reported by systems engineers related to the requirements process and determine if necessary to escalate and communicate them to aircraft integration leadership in a timely manner. 
  • Provide training, support and/or mentoring to team members on how to generate, capture, manage, validate and verify requirements in accordance with processes that you will help define.

Engineering degree from an accredited university, and experience with related software tools preferred.
