Job Description
The coolest jobs on this planet… or any other… are with Lockheed Martin Space.

At the dawn of a new space age, Lockheed Martin is a pioneer, partner, innovator and builder. Our amazing men and women are on a mission to make a difference in the world and every day we use our unique skills and experiences to create, design and build solutions to some of the worlds’ hardest engineering problems. Our culture encourages employees to dream big, perform with excellence and create incredible products. We provide the resources, inspiration and focus and if you have the passion and courage to dream big, we want to build a better tomorrow with you.

Going to space is just the beginning. It’s what you do when you get there that matters. Lockheed Martin builds the satellites and spacecraft that do amazing things in space for government and commercial customers. Connecting people. Advancing discovery. And protecting what matters most. Lockheed Martin-built satellites give earlier warning of severe weather, connect troops on the battlefield, and deliver GPS directions to a billion people worldwide.

As we look to the future, we’re driving innovations to help our customers do even more in orbit. That’s why we’re crafting smarter satellites that operate like smartphones in the sky, with apps that can be updated in orbit so they can adapt as mission needs on the ground change. Your mission is ours. And as that mission evolves, we’ll be ready. Will you?

Every day, our 100,000 employees come to work with one focus – our customers’ missions. Our customers tackle the hardest missions. Those that demand extraordinary amounts of courage, resilience and precision. They’re dangerous. Critical. Sometimes they even provide an opportunity to change the world and save lives. Those are the missions we care about.

What does this role look like?

Did you ever think that you could work for a company and actually have an impact on programs that are working on putting astronauts on Mars, creating 3D printed satellites, launching payloads that learn in orbit, or that are developing national defense systems? Lockheed Martin Space technology connects millions of people around the world and we’re accelerating tomorrow’s breakthroughs to help our customers stay ahead in an ever-changing world. We’re shaping the space technologies of tomorrow, today. At Space, we are driven by innovation and integrity. We believe that by applying the highest standards of business ethics and visionary thinking, everything is within our reach – and yours as a Lockheed Martin Space employee. At Space we value your skills, training, and education. Come, join us and experience your future!

This role will offer you the following daily challenges:

Serve as the procurement engineer for multiple material intensive programs and initiatives. In this role you can be expected to work closely with hardware and software engineering teams to facilitate system architecture and design with the goal of transforming and translating technical requirements into an executable Bill of Material (BOM). You will represent Supply Chain as technical contact on contracts and projects.

This position is for you if you like solving problems without a clear step-by-step action plan and you don’t get flustered easily. If you don’t know the answer you’re the type of person who digs until you find it. You like helping others, and you get a kick out of getting people and teams to those ‘aha!’ moments. You are level-headed, cool under pressure, patient, and politely persistent. You are focused on the results but you’re also paying attention to the details. You think anything worth doing is doing right, even if you overlooked something and have to start over again, at midnight. You have a ‘sense of urgency’ and actually think you can do ‘faster, better, and cheaper’ without having to settle for just two sides of that triangle.

• Know something about Supply Chain Engineering, Software License Management, Logistics, hardware/software maintenance planning, Earned Value Management (EVM is a plus), Proposal Experience, and/or Cost Strategy Experience
• Know something about developing Bills of Material and estimates
• Know something about coordinating with suppliers to select hardware and/or software, model maintenance solutions, and resolve conflicts.
• Know something about inventory tracking, planning, and coordination, are also key discriminators.
• Know something about working with Information Technology (IT) Suppliers under tight time constraints.
• Know something about dealing with assignments with aggressive schedules.
• Know something about project costing and supplier interface experience.

• Highly developed critical thinking and problem solving skills.
• You think on your feet, you are charismatic, and you can sell a pet rock to anyone. You write well, you speak eloquently, and you can explain just about anything to anyone whether they are an intern or an executive.

• NOTE: Applicants selected will be subject to a government security investigation and must meet eligibility requirements for access to classified information.
