At the heart of Defining Possible is our commitment to missions. In rapidly changing global security environments,
Northrop Grumman brings informed insights and software-secure technology to enable strategic planning. We’re looking
for innovators who can help us keep building on our wide portfolio of secure, affordable, integrated, and multi-domain
systems and technologies that fuel those missions. By joining in our shared mission, we’ll support yours of expanding
your personal network and developing skills, whether you are new to the field or an industry thought-leader. At Northrop
Grumman, you’ll have the resources, support, and team to do some of the best work of your career.
Northrop Grumman Mission Systems (NGMS) seeks to fill Sr. Staff Engineer Systems positions within the Systems
Engineering, Integration, and Test (SEIT) organization for Central Region Engineering (CRE) at our Rolling Meadows
– Illinois location. The selected candidates will be responsible for overall technical leadership for the SEIT departments
Mission Systems Engineering (MSE) and/or Systems Design (SD). This role encompasses team leadership,
management, and technical performance. Department assignments will be made at the conclusion of the interview
process, based on the candidates’ fit and preference.
NGMS is a leading global provider, manufacturer and integrator of advanced, secure and agile software-defined systems
and solutions. Our products range from advanced sensing technologies to state-of-the-art targeting and tracking systems
that are deployed in Electro-Optical Infrared (EOIR) and Radio Frequency Electronic Warfare (RFEW) systems. These
systems are designed, developed, built, integrated, and tested by the capable folks at our company to protect the lives of
U.S. and Allied warfighters in present and future conflicts. Our SEIT organization provides complex avionics systems in
Targeting, EOIR, and RF technology areas. The Staff Engineer Systems opportunity is available in two disciplines within
Rolling Meadows SEIT of Central Region:
Mission Systems Engineering: This department includes SEIT Leads, Architects, and Modeling & Simulation engineers.
The SEIT Lead provides leadership in applying the core principles of systems engineering in order to deliver innovative,
affordable, highly reliable systems solutions that meet customer needs, key performance parameters, and program
execution goals. The SEIT Lead will lead multi-disciplined engineering teams from business capture through system
design and then integration and test of highly complex technical systems. The SEIT Lead must be familiar with program
scheduling and managing customer deliverables. The Architect must have an understanding of how our systems
architecture design process meets our mission level goals. Assignments may also include analysis and trade studies
of product line architectures using analytical models and mission level simulations. A primary task for a modeling and
simulations engineer is software development of in-house models and algorithms. Strong domain knowledge combined
with valuable software development skills are required to produce the accurate models that drive the critical analysis
needed to design our future systems.
Systems Design: Engineers in this department are involved with creating and refining Model Based System Engineering
products (System behavioral models, Use Case realizations, State Machines, etc.), generation and update of System and
sub-system level specifications in DOORS, including requirements traceability, creation of Verification Cross Reference
Matrices (VCRM), verification traceability (tracing requirements to test plans/procedures/results), and update and
maintenance of system drawings and documents. As a part of the SEIT team, a Systems Design engineer is exposed to
the front end Systems Engineering process and coordinates across many disciplines to ensure that the system description
and requirements are properly and thoroughly defined and captured.
Your role will include research, design, development and simulation of Electronic Warfare systems, and defining and
developing processing algorithms for real-time implementation. Your expertise in RF and/or Electro-Optical system design
and analysis, digital signal and or image processing, and system modeling and simulation are desired for this position.
During the interview process, our team will seek to understand both your experience and preferences in order to determine
which area provides the best opportunity for you to succeed. These groups and engineering roles with SEIT provide
a great opportunity to work alongside a variety of other Systems, Hardware, Software and Mechanical engineers to
successfully execute on mission-critical programs.
Position Summary / Responsibilities, Sr. Staff Engineer Systems:
Performs technical planning, system integration, verification and validation, cost and risk, and supportability and
effectiveness analyses for total systems. Analyses are performed at all levels of total system product to include: concept,
design, fabrication, test, installation, operation, maintenance and disposal. Ensures the logical and systematic conversion
of customer or product requirements into total systems solutions that acknowledge technical, schedule, and cost
constraints. Performs functional analysis, timeline analysis, detail trade studies, requirements allocation and interface
definition studies to translate customer requirements into hardware and software specifications.
As a Sr. Staff Engineer Systems, you will be expected to demonstrate the following behaviors:
Knowledge, Skills and Ability – Apply advanced technical principles, theories, and concepts. Contributes to the
development of new principles and concepts.
Problem Solving – Work on unusually complex technical problems and provide solutions which are highly innovative and
Discretion/Latitude – Works under consultative direction toward predetermined long-range goals and objectives.
Assignments are often self-initiated. Determine and pursue courses of action necessary to obtain desired results. Work
checked through consultation and agreement with others rather than by formal review of superior.
Impact – Develops advanced technological ideas and guides their development into a final product. Erroneous decisions or
recommendations would typically result in failure to achieve critical organizational objectives and effect the image of the
organization technological capability.
Liaison – Serves as organization spokesperson on advanced projects and/or programs. Acts as advisor to management
and customers on advanced technical research studies and applications.
• BS degree in electrical, system engineering or related technical degree with at least 14 years of related experience
required, or 12 years with Master’s, and 9 years with a PhD.
• Prior experience negotiating with customers to convert customer needs into testable system requirements.
• Expertise in digital signal processing algorithms used to build state-of-the-art high sensitivity, wideband, real-time
processing digital receivers.
• Experience performing optimum system function allocation to hardware and software requirements.
• Demonstrated success in developing test plans that prove the system satisfies requirements and the ability to quickly
capture and process data in tools like MATLAB for debugging and specification verification.
• Excellent written and oral communication skills, and ability to work in an integrated product team environment.
• Experience working on Department of Defense contracts
• U.S. citizen
• Active Secret (or higher) security clearance
Preferred Qualifications: • MS in electrical, systems engineering or related technical degree with 12 years related experience, or
• PhD in electrical, systems engineering or related technical degree with 9 years related experience
• Experience implementing digital signal processing algorithms in FPGAs and ASICs through the use of tools such as
VHDL, ModelSim, Xilinix ISE.
• Prior experience designing hardware, firmware, and programming software to best allocate functions for each product
• Ability to monitor hardware and software design teams with critical insight to know when the teams are not on path to
successful implementation and then be able help steer the team to a successful solution
• Experience in architecting Electronic Warfare RF systems with real-time digital signal processing.
• Active Top Secret security clearance
