Job Description

BAE Systems is seeking an exceptional Human Systems Integration (HSI) Professional for an exciting opportunity to support the Air Force's acquisition of the next generation Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM).

Why BAE Systems?
BAE Systems is the third largest defense contractor in the world with an exceptional, mission-focused culture. We support the United States Air Force Nuclear Weapons Center in sustaining the existing LGM-30 Minuteman III (MM III) weapon system and acquiring its replacement, the LGM-35A Sentinel / Ground-Based Strategic Deterrent (GBSD) ICBM. We deliver daily technical excellence and innovative solutions to our government customers. BAE Systems has earned accolades as a “Top Workplace” in Utah based on employee feedback for three consecutive years, earning special distinction for providing a healthy work-life balance for our valued employees. We work very hard to ensure this is a great place to work!

Why Utah?
You’ve got to see it to believe it! Utah is an amazing state with diverse geography and an exceptional quality of life. We are located north of Salt Lake City at the foot of the beautiful Wasatch Mountains. The area offers an incredible range of outdoors pursuits across the seasons including hiking, climbing, hunting, fishing, camping, boating, mountain biking, and world-class skiing at resorts that hosted the 2002 Winter Olympics. The state is home to 5 amazing National Parks and an easy drive from two more; Grand Teton and Yellowstone. The Salt Lake City area offers a vast array of cultural activities and businesses including multiple professional sports teams. It is a western states hub for exceptional, cutting-edge medical care with people traveling from across the region for a range of nationally renowned specialty care centers and doctors. The Salt Lake International Airport is expanding and offers easy, direct access to just about anywhere you want to fly.

Why Sentinel?
The Sentinel Program is a complex “Mega-Project” modernizing the entire ICBM weapon system deployed across tens of thousands of square miles in five states. GBSD is one of the Department of Defense’s most important acquisition efforts for the next decade and longer. It includes a complete refurbishment of hundreds of aging MM III ICBM facilities to secure and support a newly designed, technologically advanced ballistic missile. The weapon system will deploy over a 9-year period beginning in about 2026, and remain operational until at least 2075. Sentinel is a career-defining program that will present unique and challenging opportunities that simply are not available with smaller projects.

Tell me about this job.
The HSI Professional will support the Air Force’s ICBM weapon system and the Sentinel. This individual is a technical expert in HSI-related efforts as they relate to the ICBM environment. As part of the Systems Engineering and Integration (SE&I) Team, the job entails support to the Systems Engineering (SE) domain and addresses human capability considerations with the other specialty engineering disciplines to achieve total system performance requirements by factoring into the system design, the capabilities and limitations of the human operators, maintainers and users. Within the SE process, HSI involves both the technical and program management efforts that provide integrated and comprehensive analysis, design, and assessment of human performance requirements, concepts, and resources. The HSI expert will ensure the system is built to accommodate the human performance characteristics of users who operate, maintain and support the total system. The total system includes not only the mission equipment but also the users, training and training devices and operational and support infrastructure.

The successful candidate will be energetic, self-motivated, and have the ability to adapt to a fast-paced environment with the desire to make a difference.
