Boeing Defense, Space & Security in St. Louis Missouri is seeking senior engineers for the SSM Product Cybersecurity Engineering Capability (EC) with a background in Mission Systems/Avionics and Systems Engineering to provide hands-on support to our programs. This position is a member of a team supporting a broad spectrum of programs, ranging from strike fighters to weapons to new pursuits in advanced technology, to provide the cybersecurity solutions needed to protect the customer information/data, the platform, and to enable mission effectiveness. Please note that having a background in cybersecurity is a plus, but it’s not required.
The team engages from early concept and system architecture development through requirements, implementation, test, and deployment. This requires an engineer to have a system-level mindset and understanding of how a product works, is used and maintained, as well as the impacts from the supply chain and software development. In the increasingly global business environment, identifying and managing the supply chain risks to our DoD customers while enabling the affordability has become even more important.
The Senior Systems Security Engineer role requires the engineer to work closely with a variety of engineering and non-engineering disciplines, especially Mission Systems Engineering, Systems Engineering, Information Security, Government and Computing Security, and Supplier Management in addition to Program Office technical/management staff to ensure the relevance of architecture and system designs in implementing program cybersecurity requirements.
As the level of responsibility increases, familiarity with these policies is needed and the role on the team may require obtaining certifications such as Security+ or CISSP to comply with contract requirements.
Other skills that help ensure success include working with suppliers, developing statement-of-work and technical performance specifications; understanding applicable contract requirements; managing requirements; working knowledge of software architecture and software development processes. The engineer will work under general supervision.
This position requires the ability to obtain a U.S. Security Clearance for which the U.S. Government requires U.S. Citizenship.

- Must have experience with military aircraft systems.
Preferred Qualifications (Desired Skills/Experience):
