About the Position
Domain is space-based intelligence collection supporting an Intelligence Community customer in a solution-based SETA type contracting environment.
Enterprise Architects/Engineers employ extensive architecting (shaping) experience, core engineering competency, deep knowledge of customer domain(s), and progressive top-down leadership experience leveraging multiple technical/engineering disciplines as required to solve strategic customer problems in the most cost-effective manner.
Solving enterprise-wide and enterprise-level problems, including strategic planning for and related roadmap development, feasibility studies, stakeholder engagement, mission level analysis, overarching enterprise architecture management organized by Epochs/Effectivities and more.
You will primarily work as an "enabler" across the customer organization to ensure successful coordination in support of long-term "must accomplish" strategic milestones.
You will lead a team of diverse engineers and other support staff in different offices at times, but also contribute as an individual when required to course-correct or spark innovative thinking through example.
You will directly engage with the government and provide timely and appropriate leveled options and recommendations in a format and style that is agreeable, expected.
You will communicate at different levels of detail as required to ensure customers, stakeholders, mission partners, and subordinate architecting/engineering leadership are aligned toward common objectives.
You will develop (or appropriately capture) and manage discrete (FY budget cycle based) multi-purpose enterprise architectures that are useful/usable for subordinate engineering, consistent with configuration management responsibilities.
Your experience and expertise will allow you to ramp up quickly to support ongoing near/mid-term projects, as well as to identify and shape future initiatives in an increasingly proactive manner. Your ability to see the big picture will allow you to prioritize your time, focus on high risk mitigation, and resist lower-value competition for your time. Your ability to communicate in layers allows you to effectively communicate to diverse groups of people to ensure political, programmatic, and technical acceptance, and primarily in that order.
