Position Description

The Objective Simulation Framework (OSF) is a Missile Defense Agency (MDA) development that integrates Hardware-In-The-Loop (HWIL) and digital representations from each of the Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) program elements into a system that accurately represents the performance of fielded BMDS equipment against a variety of threats in realistic environments.

EnVention, LLC, is currently accepting applications for the position of OSF Senior Systems Engineer. Responsibilities include, but are not limited to: (1) interface with customers and other stakeholders to develop unambiguous and explicit definition of needed simulation functionality; (2) derive OSF system, functional and software requirements; (3) collaborate with software developers to implement needed functionality; (4) develop requirements verification success criteria and assist test engineers in assessing framework capabilities; (5) maintain and manage requirements changes; and (6) support special trade studies used to evaluate system architectures and designs.


The candidate must have a BS or MS degree in a recognized field of engineering and approximately twelve years of applicable experience.

The candidate must have a minimum DoD security clearance of SECRET.

The candidate must have experience working in a systems engineering environment as part of an integrated team of systems, software, and test engineers. Experience/familiarity with the BMDS, including system functions, element interfaces, and system operations, is highly desirable.

The candidate should have strong communications skills, strong familiarity with the principles of systems engineering practice, knowledge of process quality standards associated with CMMI level 3, and experience with DOORS as a requirements management tool. Familiarity with IBM Rhapsody to support Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) and with C++ and Java programming languages is desirable. Also desirable is practical experience with LINUX.
