The systems engineering requirements for Aegis CSEA include system design, development, integration and test, incorporation of capability upgrades, installation support, certification test support, Developmental Test/Operational Test (DT/OT) test support, and delivery to land based test sites and ships. Boeing is seeking candidates to help apply our world-class systems engineering skills and maritime mission system experience to enhance the performance and functionality of the AEGIS weapon system by competing for the AEGIS CSEA contract.As a Software Engineering member of the Boeing Aegis CSEA team the selected candidate will lead the development solutions to unprecedented and complex architectures, requirements, algorithms, interfaces and designs for software systems. This includes the definition and documentation of software requirements and code associated with the AEGIS Combat System. Typical responsibilities include: analyzing software requirements to determine feasibility of design within time and cost constraints and consulting with hardware engineers and other engineering staff to evaluate interface between hardware and software and operational and performance requirements of overall system. Candidate must have experience in developing software components to run in a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) compatible with the Navy\'s objective open architecture standards. Experience in the Rational Rhapsody development environment is a must.Competencies General[ + ] CommunicationConsistently and proactively clarifies purpose and importance; stresses major points; follows a logical sequence. Guiders others in keeping their audience thoroughly engaged through use of techniques such as analogies, illustrations, humor, an appealing style, body language, and voice inflection. Frames highly complex and or advanced information in line with audience experience, background, and expectations; uses terms, examples, and analogies that are meaningful to the audience. Regularly seeks input from audience; checks understanding; presents message in different ways to enhance understanding. Uses syntax, pace, volume, diction, and mechanics appropriate to the media being used. Attends to both direct and indirect messages from others; correctly interprets messages and responds appropriately. Mentors and advises fellow project leads and other internal employees on effective communication techniques.[ + ] Decision MakingConsistently and proactively recognizes a wide range of highly advanced or unusually complex issues, problems, or opportunities across the organization; determines whether action is needed. Adeptly identifies the need for and collects information to better understand issues, problems, and opportunities; has advanced knowledge in integrating unusually complex information from a variety of sources; detects unusually complex trends, associations, and cause-effect relationships. Guides others in creating relevant options for addressing problems/opportunities and achieving desired outcomes; can be relied upon to formulate clear decision criteria; evaluates options by considering implications and consequences; chooses an effective option; implements decisions reliably and initiates action within a reasonable time; includes team leaders, managers and internal employees in the decision-making process as warranted to obtain good information, make the most appropriate decisions, and ensure buy-in and understanding of the resulting decisions.[ + ] Planning And OrganizingConsistently and proactively identifies more critical and less critical activities and assignments; effectively adjusts priorities when appropriate. Proactively determines project or assignment requirements by breaking them down into tasks and identifying types of equipment, materials, and people needed. Effectively allocates appropriate amounts of time for completing own work; consistently avoids scheduling conflicts. Is an expert at taking advantage of available resources (individuals, processes, departments, and tools) to complete work efficiently; proactively coordinates with internal and external partners. Uses time effectively and prevents irrelevant issues or distractions from interfering with work completion.[ + ] Project ManagementRecognized enterprise experience in creating comprehensive multi-tiered project schedules for significant organization, enterprise and business unit projects identifying time frames for key project milestones and ensure alignment of sub tier activities for overall project visibility, tracking and completion. Directs and manages more complex project schedules requiring interfacing with multi regional or international activities. Independently identifies project resource requirements, integrates and directs multi project elements into a single collective overall project plan. Collaborates with others on the most complex projects assigned. As an enterprise role model demonstrates ability to direct, delegate and ensure performance of assigned responsibilities and tasks as a project team leader in support of enterprise wide or extremely complex large-scale projects. Identifies and resolves any issues to ensure the successful completion of the project.Technical[ + ] Engineering ProcessesBasic -Advanced/expert knowledge of responsibilities and tasks performed by various Engineering departments/disciplines (e.g., design, test, software, technology, avionics).
