Like a good chess game, at Lockheed Martin Skunk Works we're always thinking five steps ahead. And in today's constantly changing and highly contested battlespace, staying ahead is critical. As a Skunk with our LO Radome team, you will work on revolutionary aircraft and technologies that push the boundaries of what is possible by joining the team building the world's most experimental aircraft and breakthrough technologies in abject secrecy at a pace impossible to rival.

As a Staff RF Engineer, and part of our greater Electromagnetics organization, your challenge will be to design, develop, and fabricate high quality, low observable (LO) products for our customers on time and within budget.

The selected candidate must be able to obtain a secret clearance.

A level 4 employee **Typically has 9 - 15 years** of professional experience.
