    Your Role
    In the role of Systems Engineer Integration and Test (SEIT) at Northrop Grumman, you will play a crucial role in supporting the integration and test of state-of-the-art technology at the core of the DARC system. Your day-to-day responsibilities will revolve around on-site management and execution of Integration and Test (I&T) activities, encompassing the coordination and implementation of systems engineering. This role spans a variety of areas including systems, subsystems, products, and external interfaces, with a focus on requirements, design, and verification.

    Your work will place you at the heart of an international collaboration, engaging with a diverse team that includes experts from the US and Australia.
