Systems Engineer Sensor Systems

Karlskrona, Sweden
Closing date
31 January 2022
Apply for this job!

We are expanding our team and are looking for a couple of skilled colleagues!
As a systems engineer working with Sensor Systems, you enable the crew on our submarines and surface ships to make wise decisions – by providing the systems that give the crew information about what is really going on outside the vessel. If you like interacting with people as much as working with advanced technology, this is a fantastic time to join a great team!

Your role

As a systems engineer your days are varied and full of problem-solving. You will work with one or several of the sensor systems of the submarine. You will be the point of contact regarding this system and will work closely with designers and cross-functional specialists as well as with our purchasing and production departments to ensure that your system will deliver the intended information to the crew and to other systems that request the information. Furthermore, you will have extensive contacts with our customers and our suppliers.

You will take the system through the cycle of definition of the required capabilities of the system, transformation of these into clear and verifiable requirements, selection of a system supplier, support of the physical and infological integration of the system and its components into the submarine and verification that the system requirements are fulfilled.

The main tasks are:

  • Ensuring that the system requirements are taken into account during the submarine design process
  • Ensuring that system related issues are addressed and solved as needed
  • Ensuring that all stakeholders have the relevant information about the system
  • Ensuring that the required documentation is produced, approved and properly managed
  • Planning, participating in and documenting system acceptance tests

You report to Magnus Engström, Manager Sensor Section, and will work from one of our central and coastal offices in Malmö or Karlskrona. The role includes frequent business travels both within Sweden and abroad.

Your profile

This is a job for you who are action oriented and have high self-motivation. To thrive in the role you are an influential person with great communication skills and a keen interest in complex technology. You are used to efficiently collaborating with colleagues and stakeholders both within and outside the company. You are structured, have a systematic approach, and the ability to grasp complex issues and create solutions to unexpected challenges on short notice. As a systems engineer you will from time to time have to make decisions also when comprehensive information is not yet available. Then you rely on your sound technical judgment to find a good way forward.

Required skills:

  • Master of Science or Bachelor of Science degree in a relevant field
  • Excellent communication skills in Swedish and English, verbal and written

Desired skills:

  • Project management experience
  • Experience in building and maintaining long-lasting professional relationships
  • Experience from working as a systems engineer or with the tasks mentioned above in a similar role
  • Driving license

This position requires that you pass a security vetting based on the current regulations around/of security protection. For positions requiring security clearance additional obligations on citizenship may apply.

What you will be a part of

You will be part of a team of systems engineers working with our sensor systems. We are a group of open-minded engineers who appreciate the diversity of tasks associated with this role. As systems engineers we manage a large variety of technical issues, some of them complex whereas others are more trivial. We are used to dealing with new challenges and questions that include grasping new information pertaining to the system one way or another and then taking appropriate action.
