Job Description

Leidos is seeking a candidate with a strong project engineering background and familiarity with business processes and metrics collection. The Origin program is transitioning to a more formal IT Service Management framework, applying ITSM capabilities to mature service management, problem management, and Service Level Agreement (SLA) reporting capabilities. The candidate will help lead the way for this transition, partnering with program personnel to determine the best means of collecting SLA metrics and defining requirements for tool development to collect and report on these metrics.

The Project Engineer will:
  • Work with program and client staff personnel to formally define and document SLA metrics for the program
  • Meet with program and client staff to seek understanding of the SLA's the client intends to measure, determine which factors will be used to calculate each SLA, and establish exception (e.g. escape) criteria for each SLA
  • Apply your knowledge of best industry practices to determine the appropriate types of SLA's needed to effectively manage the Origin technical baseline
  • Develop requirements for and work with the process engineer/integrator to verify tool SLA calculations
  • Document meeting minutes and develop SLA-related documentation
  • In addition, the PE may be called up on to assist with other program activities that relate to this position

Primary Responsibilities

  • Hold technical discussions with client and program staff to define SLA's and gain concurrence
  • Verify SLA calculations produced by program tools
  • Formally document SLA's in the program baseline
  • Work with program technical staff to determine appropriate escape criteria based on your understanding of Origin's deployed systems
  • Develop documentation artifacts for processes and as-built workflow designs
  • Participate in technical exchange meetings with program and client personnel
  • Act as the subject matter expert on service level agreements to other teams

Basic Qualifications
  • Requires BS degree and 4-8 years of prior relevant experience or Masters with less than 2-6 years of prior relevant experience.
  • Experience with establishing service level agreement metrics or other similar initiatives as part of a program baseline
  • Ability to work closely with colleagues to quickly understand existing business processes and work flows and then extrapolate this data into requirements to develop plans of action
  • Understanding of general business processes
  • Able to produce clear and concise documentation
  • Experience with presenting ideas, concepts, and implementations to senior client and program personnel
  • Good written and oral communications skills

Preferred Qualifications

  • Strong systems engineering background with an emphasis on IT service management models and business processes
