Systems Engineer (MBSE)

Live at the forefront of evolving the Digital Thread for the U.S. Air Force. Supporting high-performance systems engineering for the most advanced projects.

With a strong path for professional growth, you will use modern Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) tools (i.e. Cameo Enterprise Architect, MagicDraw) and practices to lead a highly experienced team in detailed systems engineering work.

In this role, you will utilize DevSecOps and code generation in conjunction with MBSE to advance the Air Force's vision for a Digital Thread in the development of advanced weapons systems. The role includes leading a team in a fully immersed MBSE environment.

The right candidate is ready to step in and lead. We are looking for a well-rounded Systems Engineer, well-versed in solid design principles, and ready to hit the ground running designing and implementing advanced architectures.

It takes all types to make Hellebore great. If you are someone who enjoys creating innovative ways to reach ambitious goals, who is open to and energized by receiving honest feedback: we should talk.


  • Aren’t a punch-the-clock engineer — technology has always been pervasive in your life!
  • Possess high standards and strive to deliver beautiful solutions
  • Insist on seeing your projects through from start to finish
  • Stay sharp in your craft by keeping on top of new tools and staying abreast of what’s going on in your field
  • Are open-minded, appreciate direct feedback, and revel in intellectually rigorous environments


  • Having whole-problem responsibility — we don’t feed engineers features and bugs to fulfill
  • Working in small teams — we emphasize agile, mission-driven work; not monolithic waterfall projects
  • Collaborating with experts in their fields, becoming one of a handful of the world’s sharpest and most engaged minds


  • Working with some seriously advanced tech
  • Working with Cameo Enterprise Architect / MagicDraw and other systems engineering tools
  • Consulting on systems engineering for our clients
  • Working with a diverse and talented team on next-generation problems


  • U.S. Citizen with an active national security clearance (i.e. Secret, Top Secret, SCI)
  • Bachelors in Science in a Science, Technology, Engineering or Math (STEM) discipline
  • Knowledge of MBSE with experience having implemented system architecture definition using UPDM and/or SysML in an MBSE tool such as MagicDraw (Cameo Enterprise Architect), Rhapsody, CORE, etc.
  • Demonstrated project ownership, not just participation
  • Can present your resume as an OV1. ;)
