Job Description

Systems Engineer Mid-Level:

Overall Assignment Description

Mid-Level Systems Engineers guide engineering teams in taking a multi-discipline approach to requirements engineering, solutions engineering, scheduling, reliability, resiliency, services development, integration, test and evaluation, maintainability and analysis across the National System of Geospatial-intelligence (NSG), Allied System of Geospatialintelligence (ASG) and Federal Agencies to ensure timely and accurate GEOINT.

Duties include

  • Conducts requirements engineering, solutions engineering, scheduling, reliability, resiliency, services development, integration, test and evaluation, maintainability and analysis across the National System of Geospatial-intelligence (NSG), Allied System of Geospatial-intelligence (ASG) and Federal Agencies.

  • Conducts planning, analysis/traceability of user requirements, architectures traceability, procedures, and problems to automate or improve existing systems and review cloud service capabilities, workflow, and scheduling limitations. 

  • Develops solutions designs based on analysis of requirements and new technology and mentor Junior Engineers in developing these skill sets. 

  • Assists the Government in the capture and translation of mission and customer requirements/needs into systems/capability requirements and solutions.

  • Supports the analyses and allocation of requirements to systems architecture components and executing programs.

  • Assists the Government in performing systems integration activities.

  • Assists with Analysis of Alternatives (AoAs), Course of Actions (CoAs), Trade Studies, and Engineering Assessments.

  • Assists the Government in strategic technical planning, project management, performance engineering, risk management and interface design.

Skills and Experience:


  • Mid-level working experience in government or industry in relevant work areas including: DoD/IC Acquisition Process, Requirements Process, PPBES Process or system engineering of large complex System of Systems or Service Oriented Architecture/Cloud environments.

  • Mid-level working system engineering experience in government or industry.


  • Working knowledge of Model Based Systems Engineering, processes, tools and languages.

  • Working knowledge of Software Development Frameworks.

  • INCOSE Associate System Engineering Professional (ASEP) certification.

  • Documented work experience in the field of geospatial intelligence.

  • Membership or active participation in any of the following professional organizations: ACSM, ASCE, ASPRS, OGC, SAREM, or USGIF.

  • Working knowledge of photogrammetry, remote sensing, image science, information sciences, geographic information systems, geomatics, or related fields.

  • Demonstrated knowledge of the current NSG/ASG and NRO enterprises.

  • Working knowledge of NGA data, systems and architecture related to, but not limited to, the following GEOINT realms:  NGA FG Requirements Management, Political Boundaries, Controlled Imagery, Elevation Modeling, Topographic Modeling, Human Geography, Aeronautical Safety of Navigation, Maritime Safety of Navigation, Geodesy and Geophysics, Geographic Names, and NOME VGI Production.

  • NGA experience (FG preferred, but any NGA experience is very helpful): NGA Architecture, Enterprise Integration, Requirements Definition, CONOPS.

  • Experience with FG-related services and tools (e.g.,  Active Earthscape, ArcGIS, GGEPS, AMS, NSS, could be helpful).

  • Experience with FG-related disciplines (e.g., hydrography, topography, mapping and geodesy, aeronautical safety of navigation, etc.) can be really fantastic if direct NGA or Foundation GEOINT experience is missing)

  • Demonstrated customer intimacy skills: Experience with customers at different leadership levels Needs analysis and needs identification (ideally directly interacting with customers. Note: requirements engineering can sometimes be a helpful skill but someone with experience upstream (closer to the user) of the traditional requirements engineering process tend to be a better fit.

  • Enterprise integration and analysis (higher level than many of the technical workers are); trade studies, development of strategic documentation, process improvements, etc.

  • Strong writing skills (e.g., CONOPS), and experience developing briefings and other engineering communications artifacts (e.g., decision papers).

  • Project management experience, Visio experience, and proficiency with other basic tools (MS Word, MS Planner, MS Excel) are also desired.

Education and Experience:

  • 6 to 12 years' experience.

  • Bachelor’s degree in Systems Engineering or in related technical or scientific fields such as engineering, physics, mathematics, operations research, engineering management, Computer Science, Information Technology, Management Information Systems, or related STEM degree program.

Security Clearance:

  • DoD Approved Clearance and Poly
