Job Description

The Opportunity
Join BAE Systems' Air & Space Force Solutions and be part of a diverse and enthusiastic team who solves some of the world's most complex technical challenges. Contributing day-to-day for the small, Hill Air Force Base, BAE team is refreshing, and the flexibility in the work week is unmatched. For the fourth consecutive year, BAE was named among the Salt Lake Tribune's 2021 "Top Workplaces," by its employees, earning special distinction for providing a healthy work-life balance for our valued employees. We work very hard to ensure this is a great place to work!

There is never a dull moment on this strategic effort, a cornerstone for the nation's security! The Sentinel Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) Program will completely replace the aging Minuteman III (MMIII) ICBM, an undertaking not performed in over 50 years. This program is considered a "mega-project" and one of the most complex in the history of the Department of Defense. The new ICBM weapon system acquisition effort brings with it the newest digital engineering tools and Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) practices to meet existing warfighter requirements, while having the adaptability and flexibility to affordably address changing technology and threat environments through 2075. As part of the U.S. Air Force's Integration Support Contract (ISC), BAE Systems provides advisory and assistance services in the areas of engineering, logistics, management, scientific analysis, and other subject matter expertise to augment and optimize management of the Sentinel ICBM Prime Contractor.
