Systems Engineering What it is like to be a systems engineer at Leonardo?

Our systems engineering roles span a wide range of activities that help pull together high-performance complex systems and system of systems.  Systems Engineers bridge the gap between the theoretically possible and the practically implementable whether that is a physical product, support or a service system.

We need talented engineers and scientists to take early concepts from a variety of sources and turn them into working solutions. However, you do not need a background in engineering to make a difference or to find a role. Many of our System Engineers come from pure science backgrounds.

Although we have a wide range of roles and unique job titles, traditional systems engineering roles typically include: Problem definition, systems architecture, synthetic environments, systems modelling and analysis, integration, verification and validation & Model Based Systems Engineering (MBSE).

Leonardo is currently offering wide range of opportunities for systems engineer roles that covering a wide range of systems skill sets which include:

  • Systems Engineers
  • Systems Architects
  • System Support Engineers
  • Data Analysts
  • Digital Engineers
