This is a Full-time position in Fort Worth, TX posted June 17, 2021.

At Elbit Systems of America (ESA), we spend our days working on exciting and meaningful innovative solutions that protect and save lives. From providing solutions for our war fighters and commercial pilots, to providing lifesaving medical instrumentation and homeland security technologies, the employees of Elbit Systems of America understand the value of their work and why we do what we do each and every day. We are looking for extraordinary people to join us in making a difference in the lives of others.

We are currently recruiting for a highly talented Staff Systems Engineer PEM — but we are looking for more than an impressive skill set. We are looking for the type of person who respects others for their knowledge, skills, and experience as individuals and as team members. If you are the type of person who has high integrity and would thrive in an inclusive environment of camaraderie and friendship with your fellow teammates, we’re pretty confident you’ll love it here.

The selected Staff Systems Engineer will be part of ESA’s Public Safety Systems Engineering (PSSE) team, providing advanced technical expertise to a wide variety of complex programs. In particular, the PSSE team is seeking someone with deep knowledge of short-, medium-, and long-range electro-optic (EO) and infrared (IR) surveillance systems, especially those currently employed by the Department of Homeland Security and more specifically, Customs and Border Protection. Candidates must have some experience with deployment of these types of systems.

This position will consult with ESA engineering personnel across multiple disciplines (for example, Software, Mechanical, Electrical, Test) to conduct thorough trade studies, perform rigorous make-buy analyses, support proposal efforts, and/or design and deliver robust engineering solutions in this technical focus area. In addition, any experience integrating such sensors with advanced artificial intelligence or machine learning (AI/ML) engines for automatic detection, identification, and classification will be a huge benefit. Such projects may include new product development, product sustainment, and/or existing product upgrades.

Candidates for this position must communicates well with all internal and external stakeholders including Elbit Systems business units, the broader engineering team, and critical third-party suppliers as necessary to meet requirements. The ability to build robust relationships and work well with people at all levels of the organization, including program management and engineering functional management, is absolutely critical.
