Model-Based Systems Engineer (MBSE)

As a Systems Engineer with Hellebore, you will be 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 software design and automation work.

In this role, you will utilize DevSecOps and code generation in conjunction with MBSE to advanced the Air Force's vision for a true Digital Thread in the development of advanced weapons systems. The role includes leading a team in a fully immersed MBSE environment on a project that has plenty of room for you to be creative and innovative. Our on-site team utilizes modern development practices to engage with our client on highly specialized (and interesting) problems.

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, and is comfortable in a start-up environment: we should talk.

  • Stay sharp in your craft by keeping on top of new tools and staying abreast of what’s going on in your field

  • 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
