The St. Louis Product Cybersecurity Engineering Capability is seeking an Experienced Engineer to lead Cybersecurity integration and liaison activities for the B-52 Radar Modernization Program (RMP) as a Sub-System Lead in St. Louis, MO .
This role is not an IT Cyber role but is, instead, a technical engineering position. Cyber has existed on information systems and home computers for years but this team is on the bleeding edge of figuring out how to apply some of those lessons onto much more complex and rigorous embedded systems like the B-52 RMP. If you want to get in on the ground floor of a new capability, this is the place to do it!
The Product Cybersecurity Capability is looking for strong systems thinkers and natural integrators with diverse interests and experience to help put different lenses on the engineering security architecture. The team is seeking engineers with robust backgrounds in fields including – but not limited to – Electrical Engineering, Systems Engineering, Avionics, and Mission Systems. Experience with cybersecurity is desired. Strong technical backgrounds are the key markers of the successful candidate; the team will teach the candidate “Cyber” once they are on board. The team has developed several tailored classroom training experiences to accelerate the candidate’s knowledge acquisition of cybersecurity.
Position Responsibilities :
Work closely with a variety of engineering and non-engineering stakeholders
Ensure the relevance of architecture and system designs in implementing program cybersecurity requirements
Partner with team members in multiple sites
The role would be highly autonomous with regards to the program but would be supported by a strong cadre of local cybersecurity team members, managers, and technical mentors
Up to 25% travel could occur depending on the needs of the program between St. Louis and Oklahoma City
Work with internal and external stakeholders (including USAF customers and various Boeing suppliers) to develop and document complex software, electronic and electrical system cybersecurity requirements
Coordinate analysis of said systems and drive implementation of requirements into the product system architecture by influencing hardware and software designs as well as interface control documents (ICDs), critical item development specifications (CIDS), and supplier statement of work (SSOW)
Lead and participate in test and validation activities for the systems (and derivative cybersecurity requirements) that they support
The selected candidate will be required to obtain a Security+ certification (sponsored by Boeing Learning Together Program) within 6 months of the start date
A successful candidate will possess the following skills:
Strong communicator and comfortable working with a multitude of engineering design groups across multiple sites
Interfacing with suppliers and presenting in major program meetings
Documenting and negotiating security architecture among various stakeholders
The successful candidate will encounter a good deal of systems-level experience and exposure quickly
Many SSM Program Managers know the cyber team by name…good career equity in a tightly knit site like St. Louis
