Chipton-Ross is seeking a System Performance Modeler Engineer for an opening in San Diego, CA.

This position is for a Systems Performance Modeler for EMS programs who transforms system descriptions into kinematics, constraints and dynamics. The goal is to produce a model of the system's performance that is accurate based on mathematical and physical derivation and tuned with data derived from testing. Performance modeling will be utilized in the design, development and optimization of the Advanced Arresting Gear (AAG) system. This includes a broad spectrum of research activities from the use of empirical methods through the use of simulations and mathematical derivations. Complex algorithms will be analyzed and a large amount of data processing work will be automated to streamline the calculation of key performance parameters. Optimal control will be determined, scheduling will be simulated, stochastic processing will be performed and rare-events will be modeled and analyzed. This work has played a critical role in the understanding of important problems in the design, development and management of this complex system.

-The Systems Performance Modeler should understand the importance of performance modeling during all phases of the product lifecycle and how to create effective requirements for performance. Knowledge of how to define and use metrics, plan for diverse workloads, evaluate scalability, capacity and responsiveness, along with how to test the model is important.
-Obtain high level knowledge of the system including hardware, software, operating systems and middleware.
-Knowledge of probability, random variables, convergence, scalability and control systems is valuable to the position.
-Assist in defining, documenting and communicating the performance model ensuring that the team is using it correctly, stages its development and tuning in a timely fashion so progress can be made before it is complete, ensures that management understands the model and analysis to the detail necessary, as well as interacting with all stakeholders to ensure their needs are being met, resolving technical problems and disputes, and makes tradeoffs.
-Assist in planning and coordinating the maintenance of solutions including debugging, maintenance, and updating to ensure viability in an evolving environment.
-Performs other duties as assigned or required.

Must have a thorough understanding of engineering concepts, principles, codes, and theory; experience demonstrating a broad application of those concepts; and, expanding knowledge of principles, concepts, theory, and practices in related technical specialties. Must possess the ability to develop and communicate new concepts; apply them accurately throughout an evolving environment; organize, schedule, and coordinate work phases; and, determine the appropriate approach at the task level or, with assistance, at the project level to provide solutions to a range of complex problems. Must have strong communication, computer, documentation, presentation, and interpersonal skills, ability to work independently and as part of a team; able to perform complex tasks in one or more engineering areas; capable of representing the organization as a prime technical contact and, lead a team of moderately experienced professional employees on single component projects. Able to work extended hours as required. A Professional Engineering License and original work published in professional engineering journals are desirable.

Typically requires a bachelor's degree, master's degree or PhD in engineering or a related technical discipline from an accredited institution and progressive engineering experience as follows; six or more years of experience with a bachelor's degree, four or more years of experience with a master's degree, or two or more years with a PhD. May substitute equivalent engineering experience in lieu of education.
