MBDA Missile Systems - Deliver For A More Secure Tomorrow
You’ll work in a multi-disciplinary team delivering a new ground based air defence system to our Italian partners, called the Medium Advanced Air Defence Systems (MAADS). Your role will include leading work packages in system design, integration, testing, and qualification of innovative radio-frequency sub-systems. While the work will mostly involve RF and Data Links systems, you don’t need to be an expert in these areas.
This is an excellent opportunity to work on incredibly complex and exciting systems, and work directly with our Italian partners (when things return to normal, this is also likely to include occasional travel to Italy). The work you do will have a direct impact on future MBDA programmes, as there is a real opportunity to being new technology and lessons learned into future programmes supporting the UK MoD.
While MAADS is the immediate focus for you in this role, you’ll also be supporting other programmes across land, sea, and air at various stages of development.
What we’re looking for
- Systems Engineering experience across the full engineering life cycle
- Proven experience of managing work packages autonomously
- While not essential, it would be beneficial if you had prior experience in data links, RF, and the wider missile/ defence industry
Here’s what’s in it for you
- Work on an exciting new development programme, delivering a real capability upgrade
- Support research and development into the data links product line for the future
- Opportunity for international travel (when the restrictions eventually allow it!)
Join a great team!
We’re a small team, but one that is well-established, highly regarded, and extremely motivated to deliver. You’ll have direct interaction with a range of other functions on MAADS and our other programmes.
