Raytheon Missiles and Defense (RMD) is the world’s largest
missile producer. We are responsible for the design, test,
manufacture, and support of weapon systems equipping the US
warfighter and our international allies to meet a large variety of
demanding mission requirements. Every missile system produced by
RMD contains advanced electrical subsystems. These enable target
detection, target tracking, guidance, navigation, signal
processing, and communication in extreme battle-field environments.
The Electrical Products Team is responsible for all aspects of
these subsystems’ design, test, and production.
The Electronics Product Development and Prototyping Department
is currently searching for an Engineer with experience in circuit
card/printed wiring board assembly, manufacturing, and the
integrated assembly of electronic components into a subsystem.
Responsibilities include supporting the Electrical Products Team
design community as the affordability, manufacturability, and
producibility expert for all Missile Programs. Tasks include
involvement in digital, analog, and RF design projects from initial
bill-of-material selection through Printed Circuit Board (PCB)
manufacturing, Circuit Card Assembly (CCA), and subsystem assembly
including resolution on all technical and supplier related issues.
Throughout the product lifecycle the Product Development Engineer
(PDE) follows our Integrated Product Development System to create
an affordable, producible, and highly reliable design that meets
the program’s delivery and milestones needs.
Key Responsibilities: PDEs are responsible to Integrated Product
Teams (IPTs) for input to the design process in areas such as
materials selection, construction, layout, component selection and
placement, design rule interpretation and application, and current
