Systems/Software Architect

Our team is looking for an experienced system/software architect to help guide the teams’ System Modeling Language (SysML)/ Unified Modeling Language (UML)/Model Based System Engineering (MBSE) development process. The architect will be required to both see the big picture and ensure that low level implementations align with the greater design. The big picture perspective will require the individual, to have the ability, to schedule a long-term implementation plans across the entire team while still accounting for changing requirements. The architect must also be comfortable soliciting requirements from users and customers. There will be times where the architect is required to help the team by teaching (through both presentations and through individual interactions), by performing both design reviews and peer reviews (with a focus on architecture), by documenting standards and best practices, and by hands on creation of SysML/UML models.

Any applicant will be required to have a strong understanding of MBSE, DoD space systems, and software development. The software architect will need to be comfortable developing not only the design for code that does not exist but also for new models and code bases. They will also need to be comfortable at developing realistic, measurable, and well documented plans for how to reach the final design.

The architect will need to be able to communicate abstract technical design decisions to both engineers and non-engineers within SSDP through one-on-one encounters, presentations, design documentation, standards documentation, best practices documentation, and Application Programming Interface (API) documentation. The individual will need to have a good understanding of Unified Modeling Language (UML) diagrams, System Modeling Language (SysML) diagrams, and MBSE concepts. The architect will need to be able to write design documentation that can reflect the implications from all perspectives including: the logical view, the development view, the process view, and the physical view. They will need to balance working off technical debt (including architectural decay) with continued delivery of software features and bug fixes.
