Job Description
The Manager for the Engineered Systems Account is matrixed to the Director of the Defense, Homeland and Special Programs (DHSP) Market Sector. The reporting structure to the Director of the DHSP Sector will be on an assignment basis and the incumbent will formally report to the Systems Engineering and Integration Division Director.
The primary function of the Engineered Systems Account Manager is to help create new programs that take prototype equipment developed at PNNL and move them up the Test Readiness Level (TRL) to deployable and operational systems for our DHSP clients.

As such, the Engineered Systems Account Manager is responsible for establishing strong working relationships with the DHSP account teams and the DHSP sector managers.

The Engineered Systems Account Manager will assist in forming internal technical teams that develop and integrate complex hardware systems.

The Engineered Systems Account Manager, working in conjunction with the appropriate Account and/or Sector Manager, is responsible for creating business development plans that market our systems engineering expertise to a diverse client base.

The account manager will work collaboratively with the three DHSP sector managers to visit and host client visits.

It is expected that the Engineered Systems Account Manager will work across the full range of DHSP clients. It will be the responsibility of the Engineered Systems Account Manager to clearly articulate client technical challenges to the technical staff and then coordinate engineering and production solutions that use a systems engineering framework and meet the clients operational needs.

The Engineered Systems Account Manager will have primary responsibility for ensuring that proposal efforts have a high likelihood of receiving client funding.
It is expected that the Engineered Systems Account Manager will establish collaborative relationships with other national labs, universities and private industry partners.

While this position is assigned to NSD, it is expected that the individual will deploy the entire scientific and engineering base of the Lab, as appropriate, to bring the best technical solutions available to the clients.
Since the Engineered Systems Account Manager position is an approximately 1/2 time position, it is expected that the remaining 1/2 time will be spent as follows: (a) managing systems engineering projects, (b) contributing to systems engineering projects, (c) mentoring and teaching staff on system engineering principles and practices, (d) developing systems engineering tools, and (e) assisting the Systems Engineering and Integration Division leadership and PNNL PMODs with establishing and implementing systems engineering processes and procedures across PNNL.
