KEY RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Plan and execute assembly, integration, and verification of complicated systems, both in the laboratory and in the field.
  • Responsible for systems engineering over multiple lifecycle phases with a strong ability to address the specialty engineering and “ilities” of systems design, for sub-systems and systems with medium criticality.
  • Establishing baselines and design configurations, including preparing and implementing engineering changes to the baselines.
  • Performing detail engineering analysis and synthesis of alternative solutions derived from unclear or vague specifications.
  • Reviewing and integrating multiple activity reports into system level analysis and reports to ensure quality and integrity of results and recommendations.
  • Provide ┬┤field engineering services after delivery to aid in fault diagnostics and rectification.
  • Coaching or mentoring one or more young engineers in the field of engineering and specifically systems engineering.
  • Participate in work teams focussed on Project or Programme planning and strategic decision making.
  • Contribute to the organisational maturity through the maintenance and upgrade of engineering processes within his/her realm of responsibility.
