What Your Job Will Be Like: We are seeking a R&D Electrical Engineer/Product Realization Team (PRT) Lead to support the Production Agency (PA) activities for the Electrical Environmental Sensing Device (EESD). The EESD will be produced entirely within the MESA complex and the EESD PRT has both Design Agency (DA) and Production Agency (PA) responsibilities. With the PRT recently completing the Production Definition and Documentation Review (PDDR), this is a great opportunity to start on-boarding a PA lead to work closely with the existing DA lead as the team progresses towards Final Design Review (FDR) and FPU, ultimately followed by full-scale production. This position is an opportunity for a highly motivated, experienced engineer to provide leadership and have significant impact on the ND program. Creativity, innovation, and adaptability will be needed to deal with the challenges of fielding new technology into the stockpile. Deep knowledge of the ND RPPs and drawing system is necessary. Experience with production environments and a production approach will be valued and will enable a smooth transition from the development phase to high rigor component production. This posting is open to qualified applicants with backgrounds in Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Material Science, Chemical Engineering, or other STEM related degrees. Due to the nature of the work, the selected applicant must be able to work onsite 80% of the time. On any given day, you may be called on to: + Partner with the Technical Lead to coordinate technical directions. + Work with the EESD DA PRT lead and WCU DA and PA PRTs on programmatic activities regarding progress tracking, documentation, reporting, and so on. + Team closely with the EESD Project Management team to meet formal PM requirements. + Work with PRT Team Members to plan and implement development, production, and qualification activities. + Mentor team members in ND product realization and low-volume, high-rigor production procedures and standard methodologies. + Collaborate with PRT management to hire and train staff to ensure the program is adequately resourced. + Assess and address gaps in production capabilities, processes, and procedures to enable high-rigor, high confidence production activities. + Represent the project to the Systems group, the next-level-of-assembly component group, different levels of Sandia management, the NNSA, and the USAF. Salary Range: $101,400 - $201,400 *Salary range is estimated, and actual salary will be determined after consideration of the selected candidate's experience and qualifications, and application of any approved geographic salary differential.

Current product delivery activities are for the W80-4 EESD program as a new 3 axis accelerometer for sensing the flight discriminating event (FDE) for the long range stand off (LRSO) missile. Future programs are aligned for future path length module (PLM) sensors and environmental discriminators to enhance the nuclear safety themes for future systems. The department also contributes to advancing Sandia’s competency and capabilities in Heterogeneous Integration through establishing internal capabilities for 2.5D and 3D microelectronic integration Posting Duration: This posting will be open for application submissions for a minimum of seven (7) calendar days, including the ‘posting date’. Sandia reserves the right to extend the posting date at any time. Security Clearance: Position requires a Department of Energy (DOE) Q security clearance to start, or equivalent active security clearance with another U.S. government agency (e.g., DOD). Sandia is required by DOE directive to conduct a pre-employment drug test and background review that includes checks of personal references, credit, law enforcement records, and employment/education verifications. Applicants for employment need to be able to maintain a DOE Q-level security clearance, which requires U.S. citizenship. If you hold more than one citizenship (i.e., of the U.S. and another country), your ability to obtain a security clearance may be impacted. Applicants offered employment with Sandia are subject to a federal background investigation to meet the requirements for access to classified information or matter if the duties of the position require a DOE security clearance. Substance abuse or illegal drug use, falsification of information, criminal activity, serious misconduct or other indicators of untrustworthiness can cause a clearance to be denied or terminated by DOE, resulting in the inability to perform the duties assigned and subsequent termination of employment.
