BAE Systems Eng Sr Prin II - Research in Burlington, Massachusetts

Are you the sort of person who has big ideas and enjoys working at the cutting edge on complex, real-world projects for leading-edge customers? Are you technically savvy with a years-long track record of innovation and capturing research contracts in various DoD and Intelligence Community R&D organizations? Does your passion lie in envisioning and realizing innovative technology to enable human-centered analytics, mixed-initiative and human-in-the-loop systems? Join us!

As a Principal Investigator you will lead business development through all phases of its lifecycle, from brainstorming and conceptualization, to presenting and selling innovative technical solutions to potential new customers through crafting and development of winning proposals - and ultimately to project technical leadership. You will establish government, industrial, and academic partnerships to leverage and complement our capabilities and build winning collaborative teams. You will focus on human-machine teaming and trusted autonomy and automation, promoting systems that enable people and computers to work together, that leverage and steer complex "back-end" algorithms through intuitive, easy-to-use interfaces, with a goal to support human decision making and collaboration across a diversity of domains.

Our team includes software engineers with a dedicated passion for creating first of kind systems, as well as computer scientists and engineers with a compulsion to extend their fields. Our organization brings deep military roots and subject matter experts to help you understand the nation's problems. You will bring business development and proposal skills to market our capabilities,and help shape our technical roadmaps. The end result is the opportunity to tackle and solve complex, real problems that matter to real people, and help our nation continue to succeed.
