Within the Electrical Subsystems Directorate (ESD), you will be a part of providing a key role within the Raytheon Missile Systems Engineering organization by providing the electronics for the weapon system products. We engage at the outset of the weapon system development and follow our designs through deployment. Our team helps mold the requirements and bring concepts to life. Our products are deployed all over the world, reach the exoatmospheric environments and into space. The Configurable Digital Logic (CDL) Products Department within the ESD’s Product Technology Center (PTC) is responsible for the architecture, design and documentation of deliverable firmware and FPGA embedded processing at RMS. At RMS, we offer competitive salaries and benefits, including profit sharing and a comprehensive relocation package. Learn more about our requirements and apply today!


The Electrical Engineer will develop FPGA designs in VHDL for all major vendors and device families including: Xilinx, Microsemi (Actel), Intel (Altera) andLattice designs are implemented using VHDL for the following applications: Radio Frequency (RF) and Electro-Optical (EO) DSP, controls, data links, and embedded processing. Designers work with circuit card designers and systems engineers to develop requirements, architect new parts, partition and perform code development, simulation, place and route. Designs are verified against requirements using both directed test and constrained random methodologies. Design support is expected from requirements definition through integration and test. Design documentation and configuration management are required.
Please Note: This position can be a Sr. Electrical Engineer I, or Sr. Electrical Engineer II based on the candidate’s qualifications as they relate to the skills, experience and responsibility requirements for the position.
