Job Details

Stevenage

MBDA is a leading defence organisation that is proud to support our Armed Forces in protecting our nations. We collaborate with governments to achieve a shared goal of defending our freedom.

Salary: Circa £65,000 depending on experience

What we can offer you:
  • Bonus of up to 21% of base salary
  • Pension of maximum total (employer and employee) contribution of up to 14%
  • 25 days annual leave (plus holiday purchase)
  • Fantastic site facilities, including subsidised meals, free car parking and much more
  • Excellent career progression and development opportunities
  • Flexible working arrangements
  • We may be able to offer a relocation package for this role

Hybrid working pattern: Where possible, we will seek to accommodate a blended approach to on-site and remote working.

The opportunity:

This is a highly-visible, strategic senior position within a much-respected, technically-capable department; a rare opportunity for highly-focused technical involvement, research and strategy steering without the need for line management duties.

You will influence the current and future direction for design and testing of sophisticated missile Guidance & Control (G&C) systems, spanning specialist algorithms, real-time architecture, and complex equipment including RF & IR seekers, inertial sensors, actuators, propulsion (turbojets, ramjets and thrust-vectored rockets), and interfaces to surface and air launch platforms.

You will have the opportunity to collaborate widely across departmental, directorate and national boundaries, and to be involved across multiple programmes at various points in their respective lifecycles, from the early research and concept stages through to full-scale development and guided flight trials.

In this role, you will develop your expertise both at a detailed Guidance & Control design level, and up through the higher architectural levels, where you can demonstrate a capability for rigorous system analysis and management of complexity.

What we're looking for from you:
  • Theoretical knowledge and extensive experience of aerospace guidance, control and navigation specification, analysis, algorithm design & implementation, real time architecture and verification
  • Ability to bound the scope of an engineering problem and to express the design challenge in terms of clear unambiguous design requirements/objectives
  • Managing complexity by identifying major drivers in a large, inter-connected engineering system
  • Able to cross-verify complex systems and system models against underlying theory
  • Communicating complex or conceptually difficult ideas clearly and elegantly
  • Diagnosing abnormalities in an engineering system both physically and virtually through computer modelling and simulation(Matlab & Simulink)
  • Influencing technically when there are other factors driving teams

To be considered for the Stevenage office, applicants are required to possess a significant level of relevant experience.

Our Business:

We value new perspectives, collaboration, and diversity. We are committed to growing and supporting diversity in our workforce and ensuring everyone has an equal opportunity to reach their potential.

We encourage you to speak to us should you require any advice, support or adjustments throughout our recruitment process.
