Job Description

Are you interested in working for the company that developed the first Minuteman missile that has protected our nation through strategic deterrence since 1958? Boeing’s innovations in design, sustainment, maintenance and modernization have ensured the safety, security, and effectiveness of the Minuteman system. The Ground Based Strategic Deterrent (GBSD) program is the Minuteman III replacement system led by the United States Air Force. Our team is supporting the USAF’s nuclear deterrence mission to replace the entire weapon system and refurbish the existing ground systems infrastructure. The program is currently under a three-year Technical Maturation and Risk Reduction (TMRR) contract that will mature our design through PDR. GBSD is part of the Strategic Deterrence Systems division that is composed of the life cycle programs supporting the Minuteman system. Our division includes the Boeing Guidance Repair Center that manages the sustainment and refurbishment of the guidance system, the Minuteman Programs comprised of contracts for incremental upgrades and sustainment, and GBSD the Minuteman III replacement system. Our vast portfolio of programs (Space Launch System, Commercial Crew, and Phantom Express) provides candidates with the opportunity to grow and develop a wide range of expertise throughout their career. If you have the desire to influence designs and to see hardware through qualification and certification, then this is the job for you!

The ideal candidate will have the following responsibilities:
  • The successful candidate in this position will perform aerodynamic design and analysis to ensure that the vehicle meets requirements.
  • Develop new and improve existing technologies, tools and processes to enhance technology readiness, improve vehicle performance and reduce cycle time and cost.
  • Plan, conduct and coordinate compliance to internal and external specifications, requirements and guarantees of the aerodynamic and operational characteristics of the vehicle. Design, develop and deliver flight operations data to meet customer requirements.

Boeing is the world's largest aerospace company and leading manufacturer of commercial airplanes and defense, space and security systems. We are engineers and technicians. Skilled scientists and thinkers. Bold innovators and dreamers. Join us, and you can build something better for yourself, for our customers and for the world.
