Needed key skills
  • Network Engineer
  • System Architect

Solicit requirements from stakeholders and subject-matter experts. Derive system requirements from stakeholder requirements. Perform analysis and experimentation to ensure requirements are properly parameterized. Personally author high quality system requirements. Become expert on Jama tool functionality to customize and configure the tool in support of the product team's evolving needs. Support Jama integration with Jira and other corporate tools to ensure robust information management, clear data ownership, single source of truth, without need for redundant data entry. Help develop a compatible set of performance targets, including safety, user experience, reliability, robustness, cost, package, manufacturability, and numerous functional attributes. Facilitate activities that accelerate product design convergence to these targets. Help author the evolving Concept of Operations, ensuring that the intended breadth of use cases are clearly defined for the product. Assist with development, documentation, and maintenance of a cohesive product architecture: functional, physical, and the allocation of functional to physical. Assist with development of right-weight Systems Engineering approach that best helps the team deliver an exceptional product within project constraints. Educate others on SE benefits and methodology, leading by example in disciplined product engineering execution. Support system DFMEA execution. Support system trade studies and program technical reviews. Develop and maintain system interface control documents. Review requirements from other authors, providing coaching to achieve requirement quality expectations. Facilitate requirement approval and change management. Ensure requirements are well organized within the appropriate databases, traced to design documents, verification plans, verification results, and potentially other entities of interest. Track and report on requirements development and verification progress, identify holes, mitigate risks, and help drive issue closure.


As a Senior Systems Engineer on a newly formed product team, you will join a small cross-functional group defining and developing an unprecedented industry-transforming robotic product. You will help develop and promote a new Systems Engineering (SE) approach that spans requirements generation, architectural trade studies, performance attribute engineering, system analysis, simulation, design, integration, and testing. You will be innovating not only on product implementation of advanced robotic technologies, but you will also be helping with new approaches to the emergent SE discipline at Boston Dynamics.
