Maryland Heights, MO Full Time Posted by: BOEING Posted: Thursday, 14 January 2021

The St. Louis Product Cybersecurity Engineering Capability is seeking a T-7A Systems Security Engineer to lead Cybersecurity integration and liaison activities for a proprietary program lead position in St. Louis, MO.

This role is not an IT Cyber role but is, instead, a technical engineering position. Cyber has existed on information systems and home computers for years but this team is on the bleeding edge of figuring out how to apply some of those lessons onto much more complex and rigorous Embedded systems like the B-52 RMP. If you want to get in on the ground floor of a new capability, this is the place to do it!

The Product Cybersecurity Capability is looking for strong systems thinkers and natural integrators with diverse interests and experience to help put different lenses on the engineering security architecture. The team is seeking engineers with robust backgrounds in fields including ? but not limited to ? Electrical Engineering, Systems Engineering, Avionics, and Mission Systems. Experience with cybersecurity is desired. Strong technical backgrounds are the key markers of the successful candidate; the team will teach the candidate ?Cyber? once they are on board. The team has developed several tailored classroom training experiences to accelerate the candidate's knowledge acquisition of cybersecurity.

Position Responsibilities:

  • Work closely with a variety of engineering and non-engineering stakeholders

  • Ensure the relevance of architecture and system designs in implementing program cybersecurity requirements

  • Partner with team members in multiple sites

  • The role would be highly autonomous with regards to the program but would be supported by a strong cadre of local cybersecurity team members, managers, and technical mentors

  • Up to 15% travel could occur depending on the needs of the program between St. Louis and sites such as Oklahoma City, Dayton, Orlando, and Washington DC.

  • Work with internal and external stakeholders (potentially including DoD customers and Boeing suppliers) to develop and document complex software, electronic and electrical system cybersecurity requirements

  • Coordinate analysis of said systems and drive implementation of requirements into the product system architecture by influencing hardware and software designs as well as interface control documents (ICDs), critical item development specifications (CIDS), and supplier statement of work (SSOW)

  • Lead and participate in test and validation activities for the systems (and derivative cybersecurity requirements) that they support

  • The selected candidate will be required to obtain a Security+ certification (sponsored by Boeing Learning Together Program) within 6 months of the start date

This position requires the ability to obtain a U.S. Security Clearance for which the U.S. Government requires U.S. Citizenship. A final U.S. Secret Clearance Pre-Start is required.

Basic Qualifications (Required Skills/Experience):

  • Bachelor's, Master's or Doctorate of Science degree from an accredited course of study, in engineering, computer science, mathematics, physics or chemistry

  • Experience in requirements analysis and avionics systems

  • Experience collaborating in a team environment

Preferred Qualifications (Desired Skills/Experience):

  • Active US Security Clearance (Minimum SECRET)

  • Model-Based Systems Engineering experience (MBSE)

  • Experience with military aircraft systems is a plus though not required

  • Experience authoring and interpreting ICDs is a plus though not required

  • Experience with Systems Security is a plus though not required

  • Experience managing projects through key program milestones (including defining entry/exit criteria) is a plus though not required

  • Knowledge of the DoD policies and requirements related to cybersecurity are a plus, though not required

Typical Education & Experience:
Education/experience typically acquired through advanced technical education from an accredited course of study in engineering, computer science, mathematics, physics or chemistry (eg Bachelor) and typically 9 or more years' related work experience or an equivalent combination of technical education and experience (eg PhD+4 years' related work experience, Master+7 years' related work experience). In the USA, ABET accreditation is the preferred, although not required, accreditation standard.
