About Us:

At Raytheon Missiles & Defense, you have the opportunity to try new things and make a bigger difference across a broader end-to-end solution, a richer technology and product set, an expanded range of disciplines, a growing global footprint and a more diverse team of colleagues and customers. 

Job Summary:

The Low Voltage Power Products (LVPP) Department supports key Raytheon Missiles and Defense (RMD) products, by providing mission-critical designs relating to power conversion, motor controls, flight termination systems, telemetry, and other analog domains. 

We are looking for early career engineers who have power electronics knowledge, including a digital power focus, to help design robust power systems for important national defense products.

We value diverse skills and experience, so don't hold back. Your qualification could add tremendous value to our team. Our customers come from all different backgrounds, and so do our employees. If you're passionate about what you could accomplish here, we'd love to hear from you.

Responsibilities to Anticipate:

  • Analyze, simulate, test, and document power conversion (and related analog) circuitry.  This circuitry will dominantly involve non-isolated switch mode power converters and linear converters.  Main emphasis is on board-mounted power end use applications.

  • Begin to understand circuit level architecture decisions.

  • Become aware of the design phases of a circuit card.

  • Further awareness of digital power conversion concepts.

  • Further awareness of software control schemes relating to digital power conversion, and how to guide related software development.

  • Perform duties with awareness of schedule concerns.

  • Engage in ECAD activities to refine understanding of placement and routing concerns relating to power electronics. 

  • Understand the role of an individual contributor in a team.

  • Understand the path of technical growth at RMD.

  • Clearly present your work product to immediate supervisors.

Qualifications You Must Have:

  • Bachelor's in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics (STEM)

  • At least 12 months' related experience.

  • Experience with one or more of the following non-isolated converter topologies: buck, boost or buck-boost

  • Experience with tools such as MATLAB, MathCAD, Mathematica or other similar tools

  • The ability to obtain and maintain a US security clearance.  U.S. citizenship is required as only U.S. citizens are eligible for a security clearance.

Qualifications We Value:

  • Must have conceptual familiarity with basic transformer and inductor operation.

  • Must have conceptual familiarity with basic EMI Filter concepts.

  • Must have conceptual familiarity with analog electronics design, including at least two of the following:  FET/BJT logic level, op-amp, high/low/band pass filters, clock/data termination, and comparator circuits, along with an understanding of how these circuits are utilized in power electronics.

  • Must have conceptual familiarity with trade studies.

  • Must have conceptual familiarity with how ECAD is used to help create physical circuit card designs.

  • Must have conceptual familiarity with designing to meet concerns of adjacent disciplines, such as thermal, structural, mechanical, reliability, and quality.

  • Must have conceptual familiarity with how specifications are used to drive design decisions.

  • Must be a self-starter, a quick learner, be able to function in a dynamic environment, and have good time management skills.

  • Must have an appreciation for the importance of strong communication and documentation skills.

  • Conceptual familiarity with one or more of:  Texas Instruments C-2000 family of microcontrollers, VHDL, Microchip PIC controllers, and/or real time operating systems.

  • Conceptual familiarity with using CAN-bus, UART, and RS-422.

  • Conceptual familiarity with wide bandgap devices (SiC, GaN) in power electronics designs.

  • Conceptual familiarity with circuit simulator SIMPLIS and/or system simulator SABER.

  • Conceptual familiarity with Mentor Graphics DxDesigner, and/or Hyperlynx.

  • Conceptual familiarity with acting as a liaison between program and functional management in a cross-matrixed organization.

  • Conceptual familiarity with military specifications.

  • Conceptual familiarity with design considerations for voltages > 400V and/or power > 10kW.

  • Conceptual familiarity with Familiarity with three-phase power systems, power factor control, and inverter/rectifier development.

  • Conceptual familiarity with motor control development.

  • Conceptual familiarity with program management tools such as Earned Value.

  • Conceptual familiarity with proposal development.
