Legato, LLC recruiters ( would love to speak with you regarding the following position: System Engineer in Aurora, CO.
Security Clearance Required: TS/SCI w/ Polygraph
What You Will Do:
The System Engineer
will manage system requirements and derived requirements to ensure the delivery of production systems that are compatible with the defined system architecture such as Department of Defense Architecture Framework (DoDAF) Service-oriented Architecture (SOA), etc. They will contribute to the development of sections of systems engineering documentation such as System Engineering Plans, Initial Capabilities Documents, Requirements specifications, and Interface Control Documents. They will assist with the development of system requirements, functional requirements, and allocation of the same to individual hardware software, facility, and personnel components. They will coordinate the resolution of action items from Configuration Control Board (CCB) meetings, design reviews, program review s and test reviews that require cross-discipline coordination. They will participate in an Integrated Product Team to design new capabilities based upon evaluation of all necessary development and operational consideration. They will allocate real-time process budgets and error budgets to system and subsystem components. They will generate alternative system concepts, physical architectures, and design solutions. They will define the methods processes, and evaluation criteria by which the systems subsystems and work products arc verified against their requirements in a written plan. They will develop system design solution that satisfies the system requirements and fulfills the functional analysis. They will participate in interface definition design, and changes to the configuration between affected groups and individuals throughout the life cycle

The ideal candidate will derive from the system requirements an understanding of stakeholder needs, functions that may be logically inferred and implied as essential to system effectiveness. Derive lower-level requirements from higher-level allocated requirements that describe in detail the functions that a system component must fulfill, and ensure these requirements are complete, correct unique, unambiguous, realizable, and verifiable. Participate in establishing and gaining approval of the definition of a system or component under development (requirements, designs, interfaces test procedures, etc.) that provides a common reference point for hardware and software developers. Implement comprehensive SOA solutions. Implement operational view technical standards view, and system and services view for architectures using applicable DoDAF standards. Review and/or approve system engineering documentation to ensure that processes and specifications meet system needs and are accurate, comprehensive, and complete. Capture all interface designs in a common interface control format, and store interface data in a commonly accessible repository. Asses each risk to tbc program and determine the probability of occurrence and quantified consequence of failure in accordance with an approved risk management plan

In conjunction with system stakeholders, plan the verification efforts of new and unproven designs early in the development life cycle to ensure compliance with established requirement. Prepare time-line analysis diagrams illustrating the flow of time-dependent functions. Establish a process to control and manage change to requirements, consider impacts prior to commitment to change, gain stakeholder buy-in, eliminate ambiguity ensure traceability to source requirements, and track and settle open actions formally and proactively. Manage and ensure the technical integrity of the system baseline over time, continually updating it as various changes are imposed on the system during the lifecycle from development through deployment and operations & maintenance.

Support the development and review of Joint Capability Integration Development System (JCIDS) documents (i.e. Initial Capability Document, Capabilities Description Document IA Strategy). Provide technical direction for the development engineering, interfacing, integration, and testing of specific components of complex hardware/software systems to include requirements elicitation analysis and functional allocation, conducting systems requirements reviews, developing concepts of operation and interface standards, developing system architectures, and performing technical/non-technical assessment and management as well as end-to-end flow analysis. Develop scenarios (threads) and an Operational Concept that describes the interactions between the system, the user, and the environment, that satisfies operational, support, maintenance , and disposal needs. Conduct quantitative analysis in non-functional system performance areas like Reliability, Maintainability, Vulnerability, Survivability, Producibility, etc.). Establish and follow a formal procedure for coordinating system integration activities among multiple teams, ensuring complete coverage of all interfaces
Our minimum requirements for this role:
  • Experience analyzing user requirements concept of operations documents and high-level system architecture to develop system requirements.
  • Experience providing technical leadership for ongoing operations
  • Provide ultimate responsibility for the technical integrity of work performed and deliverables associated with System Engineering
  • Minimum fourteen (14) plus years’ experience in programs and contracts of similar scope, type and complexity is required
  • Bachelor’s in computer science or related. Five (5) years of additional development experience may be substituted for a degree for a total of nineteen (19) years of experience
