CACI is looking for a Program Manager to join our NSIS (National Security & Innovative Solutions) division, supporting our Photonics team-- we are expanding! With a core technology base that includes high-speed electro-optics, fiber optics, and high-power lasers, our laser communications technology is helping NASA provide high-definition video from the International Space Station, and to explore asteroids 250 million miles away. Our other optical technology can also help scientists discover biohazards; support intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) missions; and protect soldiers from explosive devices. Do you have a passion for innovation? Apply now and join the team!

What You’ll Get to Do:

You will be responsible for leading one or more Photonics programs, working with development teams to propose, capture, and execute new Photonics programs and move them into production. The emphasis will be on Engineering Development & Manufacturing (EMD) development programs that will initially produce small quantities of first-of-a-kind hardware, and then require the leadership ability to transition these programs into higher volume production. Problems faced are frequently complex and require broad-based solutions that impact areas outside of immediate responsibility. The Lead Program Manager is responsible for program decisions, schedule, and profit & loss for the program. The Lead Program Manager is the primary interface to customers that are technically oriented, and the ability to effectively communicate with this community, with the support of the technical team, will be critical to success. This position will also require the ability to implement evolving programmatic, design and quality best practices within the team, and the ability to communicate with and influence executive leadership. Some programs are expected to have follow-on phases with volume production, and the position will also include a responsibility to work with production teams in adjacent organizations to Design For Manufacturing (DFM), and to support the transition to production. A successful person in this role will contribute to improvement of entire processes or systems within the programs and the organization, leveraging on personal past experience and understanding of program management best practices that improve our competitive position in the marketplace.

You’ll Bring These Qualifications:

  • Seven or more years of experience in a Program Management or other technical leadership role with a focus on the design, development, qualification, and manufacture of new products.

  • Solid understanding of PM principles, such as those promoted by the Project Management Institute, including demonstrated experience with a standard PM Tool Kit such as scheduling, budget control, and risk management.

  • Experience with MS Project

  • Experience in successfully taking an electronics or optical system through an integrated product development process from product development to manufacture.

  • Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in an engineering, science, or business discipline.

  • Exemplary verbal/written communication skills required for interactions with all levels of personnel within the organization, as well as vendors, suppliers, customers, etc.

These Qualifications Would be Nice to Have:

  • Experience working on DoD or other similar Government programs

  • Experience managing programs to EVMS standards.

  • PMP certification

  • Active TS clearance is highly desired

  • Experience managing programs over $10M in contract value.

What We Can Offer You:

  • We’ve been named a Best Place to Work by the Washington Post.

  • Our employees value the flexibility at CACI that allows them to balance quality work and their personal lives.

  • We offer competitive benefits and learning and development opportunities.

  • We are mission-oriented and ever vigilant in aligning our solutions with the nation’s highest priorities.

  • For over 60 years, the principles of CACI’s unique, character-based culture have been the driving force behind our success.
