Join a team recognized for leadership, innovation and diversity

The future is what you make it. 

When you join Honeywell, you become a member of our global team of thinkers, innovators, dreamers and doers who make the things that make the future. That means changing the way we fly, fueling jets in an eco-friendly way, keeping buildings smart and safe and even making it possible to breathe on Mars. Working at Honeywell isn’t just about developing cool things. That’s why all of our employees enjoy access to dynamic career opportunities across different fields and industries. 

Are you ready to help us make the future?
Honeywell Aerospace is a $10B+ SBG (Strategic Business Group) with 40,000 employees in over 125 domestic and international locations. We are a leading global aviation supplier designing, manufacturing, and distributing advanced electronic systems, products, and services to commercial, defense and space industries.
Within Honeywell Aerospace, CNS (Communication, Navigation, Surveillance) is the Center of Excellence (COE) that is responsible for the innovation, development, certification and design maintenance of electronic Aerospace products related to communication, radio navigation and safe aircraft operation. Our vision is to be the premier world-class organization innovating value-added Communication, Navigation, and Surveillance products that delight our customers and ensure safe and efficient flight.  Our mission is to rapidly create cost-effective leading-edge products delivering safety, flight efficiency, connectivity, and services to our Aerospace clients and the flying public.

The Navigational Radios – Radar Altimeters is an engineering group with the CNS organization in which this Project Engineer role is Included – with products spread across both commercial and military domains. 

While part of a large company and diverse organization, the Nav Radio-Radar Altimeter group operates very much like a small business in many ways. We are fully integrated every aspect of a product’s life cycle – from working with a customer on a concept and subsequent proposal, through development, verification, production, and even obsolescence refreshes. Our key contributors are expected to wear multiple “hats” dependent upon the program scope and timeline.  With respect to Project Engineers (PE), our expectation on medium to smaller programs is for the PE to operate as both PE and LSE (Lead System Engineer) – managing the cost/schedule of the program along with driving technical discussions and stepping in and executing work where needed – such as drafting technical presentations or data items and maybe even running a test or two in the lab as required.
On larger programs the PE can be up to a full-time job, managing all program areas technical and programmatic.
Primary responsibilities include:
• Serve as the technical point of contact for customers and the program manager
• Prepare schedules and resource forecasting
• Participate in proposals and cost estimation
• Provide project oversight of day to day activities to achieve on time and on budget execution 
• Oversight of risk management process and baseline change processes
• Drive the EVM (Earned Value Management) process and effective management operating process (MOS).
• “Jump in” and support technical team as needed with small/medium programs
The ideal candidate has a commitment to aviation safety, technical and professional excellence, a commitment to customer satisfaction and growth, demonstrates leadership and delivers on results, has a global mindset and is able to foster teamwork and diversity, demonstrates personal and professional integrity, has strong oral and written communication skills, is able to work across functional boundaries at multiple levels, and can establish strong working relationships within internal/external customers and the certification agencies.
