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 mid-sized 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 somewhat complex and may require broad-based solutions that impact areas outside of immediate responsibility. The Program Manager is responsible for program decisions, schedule, and profit & loss for the program. The Program Manager is the primary interface to customers, and the ability to effectively communicate 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 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 processes within the programs and the organization to improve our competitive position in the marketplace.

You’ll Bring These Qualifications:

  • Three 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.

  • Understanding of basic PM principles, such as those promoted by the Project Management Institute, including an understanding of the standard PM Tool Kit such as scheduling, budget control, and risk management.

  • Some 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.

  • Experience with Microsoft Project or other scheduling tool

  • 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 with EVMS standards.

  • PMP certification

  • Active TS clearance is highly desired

  • Experience managing programs over $5M in contract value.
