FAST Labs - Space Systems Tech Group Lead




Full Time


Merrimack, New Hampshire, United States

Job Description Because of the need for consistent, in-person collaboration and/or the requirement to perform all work onsite due to the nature of this particular role, it will be performed full-time on site. This means work will be conducted on location at a BAE Systems facility 100% of the time.

Exemplified by our mission: “We Protect Those Who Protect Us®”, BAE Systems’ FAST Labs innovates next generation capabilities for the warfighter. Through research programs funded by science and technology R&D organizations within the U.S. Department of Defense, our research and development teams fearlessly innovate and collaborate across the enterprise to create game-changing capabilities. The R3 Mission Systems (MS) group is looking for a Space Systems focused Technical Group Lead to help execute and steer the cutting-edge capabilities that we aim to provide to the warfighter. This position involves a mixture of hardware, systems, software, signal processing, and mathematics.

The MS directorate works on programs whose missions involve RF electronic warfare, communications, SIGINT, ELINT, and other digital signal processing. Fulfilling the expectations of this role include program execution, business capture, personnel management, and strategic planning.

This position is based out of our Merrimack, NH location, though it will require collaboration with staff across our business areas and facilities in the Northeast United States.
