This posting is for the Design Engineering organization (2990). Applicants may be sourced and selected for any departments within the organization. Uses Electrical Computer Aided Design (CAD) software to mathematically represent the physical attributes of the product. Determines the physical characteristics of the product to be manufactured, including geometric form, interface features, manufacturing specifications, processes, and assembly instructions. Uses physical and computational simulation, analysis, and design trade studies as inherent activities of product development. Ensures design feasibility from a manufacturing and product maintenance perspective. Communicates the design options and recommended approach to product development teams, stakeholders, and manufacturing partners. Applies technical judgment based upon engineering principles in the design and development of innovative products for Sandia National Laboratories. Utilizes creativity to formulate design concepts that meet the form, fit, and functional requirements for new product concepts.
We provide electrical design engineering services to Sandia National Laboratories' engineering staff using Computer Aided Design modeling applications such as Mentor Graphics. We partner with Product Realization Teams to create high quality design model and drawings of systems, components and layouts including assembly and piece part definition. We focus on programs related to National Security which include nuclear weapons, integrated military systems, transportation, satellites, etc.

Individuals in LTE positions may bid on regular Sandia positions as internal candidates, and in some cases may be converted to regular career positions during their term if warranted by ongoing operational needs, continuing availability of funds, and satisfactory job performance.
Bachelor's degree in electrical engineering or equivalent discipline plus entry level engineering and operations experience.
Experience with Mentor Graphic or equivalent 3D eletrical design packages.
Understanding of manufacturing methods for mechanical hardware and design for manufacturing principles.
Able to obtain and maintain a DOE Q-level security clearance.
Experience in design of major assemblies requiring extensive interface definition and design for manufacturability constraints.
Certification in ANSI Y14.5 or extensive experience in formulating Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerancing schemes
Experience in coordinating testing efforts at various SNL facilities
Experience in developing flight quality hardware
Understanding and application of configuration management principles for change management and engineering authorization
Experience mentoring other individuals
Understanding of the correlation and interaction between nuclear weapon components.
Demonstrated experience in leading teams of four or more individuals
Confident communication skills both oral, and written, for communicating design intent
Strict adherence to the policies and procedures governing the creation and sharing of sensitive design information
Strong desire to be deeply involved in product development and realization
An active DOE granted Q-level security clearance
Knowledge of SNLs design definition standards
Position requires a Department of Energy (DOE) granted Q-level security clearance.
Sandia is required by DOE directive to conduct a pre-employment background review that includes personal reference checks, law enforcement record and credit checks, and employment and education verifications. Applicants for employment must be able to obtain and maintain a DOE Q-level security clearance, which requires U.S. citizenship.
Applicants offered employment with Sandia are subject to a federal background investigation to meet the requirements for access to classified information or matter if the duties of the position require a DOE security clearance. Substance abuse or illegal drug use, falsification of information, criminal activity, serious misconduct or other indicators of untrustworthiness can cause a clearance to be denied or terminated by the DOE, rendering the inability to perform the duties assigned and resulting in termination of employment.
