We are the world’s leader in developing and manufacturing leading edge missile systems and defense solutions. We’re looking for engineers who enjoy solving complex problems and engaging in a dynamic team environment.

    The efforts Operations Research and Analysis department resides in the Modeling Simulation and Analysis (MSA) Center at Raytheon Missile Systems (RMS). We are looking for system engineers to help our customers develop next generation weapon systems.We conduct the analysis in a scenario-driven environment to provide decision makers and war fighters the information they need to make data driven, informed decisions. Our department’s engineers are versatile, innovative, self-motivated and eager to learn.

    Our Tucson, AZ, location has several openings available for Operations Research and Analysis engineers to join our team of engineering professionals, specifically for developing and implementing solutions in support of data analysis, concept of operations, military utility and weapon optimization as well as the development of complex systems throughout the development life cycle.Learn more and apply today!

    Job Description and Key Tasks:

    The Operations Analysis Intern will work within a multi-discipline team to develop and enhance weapon system concepts by using Operations Research tools and mathematical methods including, but not limited to, regression analysis, math programming (e.g., optimization), stochastic models and simulation studies. In doing so, the Operations Analysis Intern will be introduced to battlefield simulations; effectiveness, survivability and operational utility studies; and simulation and data analysis activities to support weapon system performance trades, cost effectiveness, survivability evaluations and competitive assessments.

    The Operations Analysis Intern will be introduced to existing Government and company constructive simulations as well as develop smaller math models in MATLAB, Microsoft Excel, or programing languages such as C, C++, Python, Java, or Android.

    The Operations Analysis Intern will support analysis to support weapon system design and trade studies, performance assessment studies and affordability studies from initial concept to fielded product and product improvement. Responsibilities also include supporting mission impact analyses, Analysis of Alternative studies and other analysis as required and to interface with senior personnel across RMS Program areas. U.S. Citizenship status is required as this position needs an active U.S. Security Clearance as of day one of employment.
