Mid-Level GEOINT System Engineer

KBR is seeking a mid-level Systems Engineer to support government customers out of our facility in Valley Forge, PA. The Systems Engineer for GEOINT Testing provides the expertise and skillsets to successfully develop, coordinate, and execute a risk-based GEOINT product quality assessment program. They will apply systems engineering processes relevant to DoD acquisition programs to enable detailed risk-assessments of GEOINT data and GEOINT TCPED capabilities for developing comprehensive quality evaluation studies. This function maintains awareness of planned updates to the NSG, including systems, capabilities, and sensors through review and coordination of Mission Partner Requests for Change (RFC), review of system documentation, and tracking schedules. Additionally, this function facilitates and supports the development and maintenance of standard operating procedures (SOPs), Concept of Operations (CONOPs), work instructions and others to ensure standardization and continuity in the risk-based strategy across all product quality efforts.


  • Provide and maintain functional knowledge of the following: The National System for GEOINT (NSG), system engineering processes and procedures, and GEOINT capabilities that reside in NSG legacy and cloud environments
  • Support early product quality requirements review and input for NSG system development, upgrades, sensor integration, and other NSG improvements via Request for Change (RFC) review

    • Coordinate Subject Matter Expert (SME) review of related RFCs and supporting documentation to assess product quality risk and impact.
    • Report comments and impacts to RFC POCs and track RFC approval.
  • Support the development and maintenance of product quality SOPs, CONOPs, architecture design, handbooks, strategic plans, and reference guidance.
  • Support program milestone events (including Test Planning Meetings, Operational Acceptance Tests, and others) and provide recommendation based on assessments, analysis, and coordination; risk assessments, product quality assessments, coordination with program offices.
