Our location in Irving, TX currently has an opportunity for a Senior Systems Engineer .


The Senior Systems Engineer is responsible for understanding interdisciplinary, collaborative approach to plan, design, develop the integrated set of standards, sub-standards, and assemblies needed to design and manage systems over their life cycles. Applies an interdisciplinary, collaborative approach to plan, design, develop and verify a life-cycle balanced system of systems and system/subsystems solution(s) which satisfies customer/operational needs and public/regulatory acceptability. This includes a multitude of systems requirements that range from design, development, test methodologies, validations, risk analysis, documentation, and process improvements.

  • Defines system performance (requirements and specifications)

  • Translates system level product requirements/specifications to sub-assembly specifications

  • Integrates technical parameters

  • Assures compatibility of all physical, functional and program interfaces to optimize total system of systems and/or system/subsystem architecture(s)

  • Perform specialty engineering analyses (such as affordability, safety, reliability, maintainability,testability, human systems integration, system security, regulatory, certification, and product assurance) to obtain a preferred configuration which assures product success.


  • Creates and defines system requirements, system specifications and input/output process, etc. Conducts analyzes of system requirements, user needs, system design, and coordinates system evaluation activities.

  • Leads technical discussion for system level design reviews, development and testing to assess performance against design specification; reliability testing, and assessment of system interactions.

  • Provides system level technical support in developing manufacturing processes and troubleshooting issues to determine root cause and potential engineering solutions. Proactively monitors the system level health of the product and identifies potential issues.

  • Technical systems lead in documenting system requirements by writing documents, reports, memos, change requests, etc. Methods used are determined by approved procedures and standards.

  • Conducts and/or provides guidance on special studies or experiments to improve systems engineering practices, system quality, and define new components, products or processes. Independently designs and executes experiments. Utilizes DOE (Design of Experiments) as appropriate.

  • Leads moderately complex issues to determine root cause. Applies systematic problem-solving methodologies in identifying, prioritizing, communicating, and resolving System level issues. Utilizes DMAIC and/or other investigation tools as appropriate. Teaches and mentors systematic problem-solving methodologies to other members within technical community

  • Applies process efficiency tools to improve proficiently within process and work methodologies. Collaborates with various engineering disciplines and other cross-functional groups to optimize system solutions.

  • Ensure relevant engineering knowledge and skills are up-to-date (e.g. methods and tools within software engineering, mathematics, requirements engineering, risk management, good documentation practices, product development, etc.) Clear understanding of Medical Device Regulations and quality sub-systems including Risk Management, CAPA, and Design Planning. Applies engineering/ process knowledge to support system engineering activities.

  • Leads collaboration with various technical disciplines (e.g., design, test, software, technology) through knowledge of the interaction between departments/disciplines and how their products/processes affect one another and impact non-engineering processes (e.g., Operations, Logistics, Business, Quality).

  • Provide products and services that meet the highest technical and quality standards, regulatory requirements, and company policies and processes and embrace first-time quality as a way of life – not accepting, creating or passing any defects and speaking up.

  • Monitors performance of cross-functional teams against complex timelines; develops contingency plans as needed; recommends across-site resource and strategy adjustments



  • Bachelor’s Degree Engineering (Electrical, Mechanical, Computer Science, Systems Engineering) or related Engineering/Scientific Field.

  • STEM advanced degree may count towards relevant experience

  • 8 or more years’ experience in the following:

  • Demonstrated experience leading complex system and risk analysis.

  • Demonstrated ability to lead and utilize data to make decisions and influence stakeholders.

  • Demonstrated success in technical proficiency, creativity, and independent thought. Experience with system level concept creation, evaluation and innovation

  • Experience with system analysis, model based system engineering and system architecture

  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills.

  • Proven Knowledge of System Engineering principles or concepts.

  • Demonstrated ability to apply principles of systems thinking to accelerate performance.


  • Master’s Degree (e.g. Electrical, Mechanical, Computer Science, Systems Engineering) or related Engineering/Scientific Field)

  • Relevant Systems Engineering experience from any of the following types of manufacturers/industries: Medical Device, Defense/Aerospace, and/or Aviation.
