Job Description

As part of the Systems Architecture and Integration department, the Systems Architect is responsible for the requirements and architecture development of aircraft landing gear and braking systems (ATA32).

As a Systems Architect on a development program, you will define and coordinate a comprehensive system development logic in line with Safran's Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) framework. Adopting an overall view of the system throughout its lifecycle, you will ensure that the solution achieves an optimal balance between system requirements, lead times, costs and risks, and that the proposed system architectures are technically robust and meet the customer needs.

You will interface with the Program Chief Engineer as a deputy on Systems Engineering activities, and as a technical leader for the Systems Engineering teams across Safran Landing Systems business units over the entire ATA32 lifecycle.

Ensure the consolidation of requirements through system specification:
- identification of all interfaces and stakeholders concerned by the design, production,
maintainability and use of the system
- definition of the system's “mission” and specifications, based on the needs expressed by the
(customer, etc.) and the requirements imposed by its environment
- evaluation of the relative weighting, completeness and sensitivity of requirements, as well as
the influence and effects of the environment
