Leonardo is a global high-tech company and one of the key players in Aerospace, Defence and Security. The Radar and Advanced Targeting line of business is uniquely positioned as one of the world's top manufacturers of radars, lasers and infrared countermeasure systems.
Are you a systems thinker?
Does solving complex problems interest you?
Would you thrive in a collaborative environment?
Do you want to apply your skills to a complex problem domain?
Then we want to speak to you!
We are not expecting you to have deep theoretical knowledge of radar, electro-optics or infrared systems. What we are looking for are systems engineers with applied engineering experience that we can build upon through training, team working and mentoring
We are recruiting for various positions, but wherever you go, you will work on real engineering problems, designing and developing solutions that sit at the heart of our products. Your work may be exploited into:
Systems Engineers span a range of activities that help pull together all the necessary engineering and technology stands into a high-performance system. As a Systems Engineer, you will bridge the gap between the theoretically possible and the practically implementable. You may be involved in:
Applied research: Early research looking into exploiting new technologies or concepts
High-level design: Higher-level understanding of the impact of design decisions can have on performance
Low-level design: Detailed design, prototyping and optimisation of a solution using expertise within your technical domain.
Lab-based integration and testing: The design meeting reality and working to solve practical challenges
Supporting trials and integration on customer platforms: Getting a unique opportunity to see our products in action, and developing an increased understanding of product use cases.
We are a supportive team of talented and innovative engineers who come from a diverse range of backgrounds, such as theoretical physics, quantum physics, nonlinear optics, applied mathematics and statistics, nuclear physics, astrophysics, signal processing, mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering, information fusion, and robotics and autonomy!
You will work with exceptional engineers, developing the skills and knowledge required to achieve your technical and professional goals. Our working environment is fast-paced but relaxed, and we value the expertise of our engineers and work to ensure they have the autonomy and confidence to make decisions!
What will you do?
We are recruiting for a number of roles from a variety of backgrounds and skillsets!
Based upon your skills and foundation knowledge, we will assess where your knowledge and skills would best fit and discuss the options with you.
Typical work you might be involved in:
Dependent on experience, you may lead technical activities and initiatives, or you may mentor and coach other engineers.
This is a great opportunity to bring your talents and form an integral part of Leonardo's future. We can help you develop your skills and offer great opportunities to develop and grow, so why not join us?
What are we looking for?
Ideally, you will have a science-based Honours degree or equivalent experience. You will have worked in the industry or will have advanced academic research experience. If you have a PhD, we encourage you to apply to our Research Scientists and Engineers vacancy.
We are particularly interested in speaking to you if you have experience in any of the following areas:
Systems Engineering specialisms, e.g.:
Domain specialisms, e.g.:
