MIT Lincoln Laboratory designs novel defense systems meant to improve existing methods or provide previously impossible capabilities to the US government, ranging from optical communications systems to missile defense.

The Mission Assurance Office works to identify and mitigate the risks associated with the significant technical level, effort, and expense involved in these rapid developmental Laboratory programs. While each program is distinct, and offers unique challenges to its Mission Assurance Engineers, the candidate can expect to be responsible for:

Identifying and mitigating program risks
Disseminating lessons learned
Providing feedback at requirements, design, and test reviews
Analyzing and helping to rectify system failures
Engaging with program sponsors/customers
Implementing the Laboratory’s Quality Management System (QMS) to ensure program success
Collaborating with departments across the Laboratory to establish and implement quality processes
Training engineers, technicians, and management in proper quality assurance techniques
Performing assessments to help foster Laboratory continuous improvement efforts
Supplier selection, pre-shipment reviews, and audits

The expectation is that the Mission Assurance Engineer will become a subject matter expert on their program, while also applying a thorough and evolving knowledge of quality processes throughout the product design, assembly, testing, and life cycle. He/she will be expected to efficiently plan, organize, and complete projects while working effectively within a fast-paced environment.
