Job Description:

applyBoeingJobBoeing Talent Acquisition is currently looking for a Senior Modeling & Simulation Systems Engineer to join the Analytics & Digital Solutions team in Seattle, WA. This position will focus on supporting the Boeing Global Services (BGS) business organization. 

They need a senior systems engineer with a strong background in modeling & simulation, in application development, as well as in architecting applications, ideally with experience in distributed environments. This position involves both developing and extending a suite of simulation software as well as performing analysis and modeling specific scenarios.

Their team is modeling and simulating logistics and supply chain processes to enable designs that optimize logistics performance for Boeing’s government services customers. Their main technical focus area currently centers on Model-Based Sustainment (MBS) and its applications to the digital thread and digital twin in order to best support both Boeing and non-Boeing platforms once in service.

Their team has built a suite of modeling and simulation capabilities based on ExtendSim, the commercial software of choice for discrete event-based simulations. Models are developed using ExtendSim’s MODL scripting language and Python for data exchange and data integration with other applications and data sources.

This position will offer you the opportunity to develop new models, apply your system engineering skills to Boeing use cases, and provide technical guidance, training and mentorship to junior team members.
