MBDA Missile Systems - Deliver for a more secure tomorrow

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced Embedded Integration Engineer to be involved in the development of our growing portfolio of complex electronics platforms. The portfolio ranges from advanced signal processing systems (ImageRadio), core embedded processing systems, through to safety and security critical systems.

Your role will primarily involve the early integration and test of the hardware, firmware and software that are at the core of our embedded systems. This offers a great opportunity to strongly influence the early development of the embedded system, push the latest integration and test techniques, and interact with the wider multidiscipline design teams.

Our portfolio comprises technology from all the major embedded vendors, and we are always looking to use cutting edge tools and technologies. In this role, you would be part of a strong multi-disciplined team, and would be key to delivering our current and future products.

What we're looking for

Ideally educated to degree level (or equivalent qualification) with experience in the majority of the following areas:
  • Analysing requirements and high-level designs to understand the overall functionality required of the integrated embedded system.
  • Defining test tools to support the early integration of the design, and influencing the formal test tools to accelerate their early inception into the development cycle.
  • Defining and agreeing a functional development plan to co-ordinate the delivery of the functional components (hardware, firmware, software, test tools) required to deliver incremental capability.
  • Developing test tools and performing the lab based integration of the functional components to deliver the integrated embedded capability.
  • Co-ordinating the overall delivery of the early-integrated embedded system to the project manager, including an ability to Configure and Document the delivery to a high professional standard.

What's in it for you?

Engineering is at heart of our business; and this role will give you an opportunity to both develop your core embedded integration and test skills, and gain a wider experience of complex systems. You will be working alongside a multidiscipline engineering team, and you will be a key part of a supportive and growing team of embedded engineers as your career expands with us. The business is committed to upskilling people through both formal training and practical experience. It is a fantastic role, in which you can develop both personally and professionally.

Our benefits
  • *Flexible working *opportunities for career progression *paid overtime (subject to level) *great bonus scheme *comprehensive pension scheme *annual salary review *fantastic working environment and site facilities *social, charitable and sporting activities.

You will get the support of a mentor network, a people management community (who offer leadership support through focus groups and internationally renowned experts in leadership), peers and the team around you. We work better as a team and when you join us, you will be made to feel very welcome.

If you are great at what you do, we also want you to share your knowledge, enthusiasm and experience to help us improve where we need to.

When properly supported, we can - and do! - do extraordinary things.

Company

MBDA, a world leader in missiles and missile systems, is a multi-national group with 10,000 employees working across France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Germany, Spain and the United States. It has three major aeronautical and defence shareholders - Airbus Group (37.5%), BAE Systems (37.5%) and Finmeccanica (25%) - and is the first truly integrated European defence company. In 2013, the Group recorded a turnover of 2.8 billion euros, produced about 3,000 missiles and added 4 billion euros of new orders to the order book which now stands at 10.8 billion euros. MBDA works with over 90 armed forces worldwide.

MBDA was created in December 2001, after the merger of the main missile producers in France, Italy and the UK. Each of these companies contributed the experience gained from fifty years of technological and operational success. The restructuring of the industry in Europe was completed with the acquisition of the German subsidiary EADS/LFK in March 2006. This further enriched MBDA’s range of technologies and products, consolidating the Group’s world-leading position in the industry.

MBDA is the only Group capable of designing and producing missiles and missile systems to meet the whole range of current and future operational requirements for the three armed forces (army, navy, air force). Overall, the Group offers a range of 45 products in service and another 15 in development.

The Group has demonstrated its ability to bring together the best skills across the whole of Europe and as a result has been chosen to lead a series of strategic multi-national programmes. These include the six-nation Meteor air superiority weapon, the Franco-British conventionally armed cruise missile, Storm Shadow/SCALP, and a family of air defence systems based on the Aster missile for France and Italy (for ground and naval based air defence) and for the UK (naval air defence for the Royal Navy’s Type 45 destroyers).

The mastery of cutting-edge technologies is not only an advantage for MBDA in successfully developing and producing new products. It is also a means of guaranteeing customers that innovations can be made to existing products during their life span in order to meet constantly changing specifications arising from increasingly complex engagement scenarios. It is precisely this combination which makes MBDA the defence sector partner of choice in many countries around the world.
