Job Description

Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Field Sustainment Opportunity!

Who We Are:

Located in beautiful Sacheon, South Korea, our KF-X team supports our customer as the country pushes forward in developing their first domestically built advanced multirole fighter for the Republic of Korea Air Force. Join a vision 30 years in the making for our customer, Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI), to successfully develop an aerospace industry in Korea.

The plan is for KF-X to be a stealthy, indigenous, highly advanced fighter aircraft.

With the Airframe structure recently completed, help us finish what we started and see your work take flight as an in-country Aerodynamic Performance Analysis Engineer for KF-X.

Why Lockheed Martin:

At Lockheed Martin Aeronautics we value your unique skills and expertise and we aim to give back continuously by offering a wide variety of benefits and amenities to help our employees live flexible, healthy, and fulfilling lives at and outside of work. Some of our team's favorite perks include:

The Challenge:

Soon this airframe will become an airplane, and with your help, it will fly. As a Technical Advisor embedded into our customer's engineering team, you will be entrusted as the primary point of contact on planning for and executing flight test of the KF-X.

Your extensive knowledge of aerodynamics, stability and control, wind tunnel testing, and mass properties will play a critical role in helping our customer achieve their aerodynamics performance vision.

Deploying from your current location, this opportunity allows you to partner intimately with our team and customer as you provide critical technical advice, training, support, and development through the appropriate application of analysis and integration to achieve an optimal design solution.

A Day in the Life:

Joining our KF-X program, you will be embraced by a welcoming Korean people and become a part of an intimate group of production and engineering professionals all working together to make this vision possible. Beyond that, you will experience living in a beautiful country boasting a positive and diverse family-oriented culture, great education, and an extremely safe environment.

As a Technical Expert reporting to the Flight Sciences Lead under Air Vehicle Analysis,

you will play a critical role in advising and partnering with KAI's engineers through concept development and subsequent appropriate application of analysis methodologies, ground test, and flight test with the aim of achieving a balanced design solution.

On any given day, you may also:

  • Provide full life-cycle Aerodynamics Performance & Flight Test technical support/advice
  • Be a valuable resource and mentor for our KAI team and engineers, as they rely on your technical expertise and cross functional knowledge, to meet their goals
  • Collaborate frequently, fostering transparency as a trusted resource cross functionally
  • Proactively recognize and resolving issues, ensuring corrective actions are in line with current needs

About You:

You are motivated to see your hard work take flight. As a mentor, you believe in collaboration with your team and beyond, gaining multiple perspectives, and bringing everyone together to solve some of our customer's most difficult challenges. You are dependable and well respected by those you partner with and are in your element working in diverse groups where attention to the customer is paramount.
