As directed by Executive Order 14042: Ensuring Adequate COVID Safety Protocols for Federal Contractors, all current and newly hired employees, in the United States, are required to be fully vaccinated by January 18, 2022.

Description: Lockheed Martin’s (LM) Center for Innovation (CFI) is seeking an experienced Operations Analyst Sr Staff to support and drive the quality of analysis-supported interactions between Lockheed Martin business areas (BAs) and their customers; ensuring successful outcomes that substantively support and inform the BA Long Range Plans and shape customer perspectives. These interactions lead to further insights and understanding by the BA of the customer’s needs and intentions and the confidence of the customer in Lockheed Martin’s understanding of the operational environment, technology applications and functionality, and measures of effectiveness, all leading to strong and enduring relationships and business outcomes.

The successful candidate will join a team of experienced operations project managers, wargame designers, and wargame analysts at the CFI, often referred to as the “Lighthouse”, in Suffolk, VA engaging in the development and execution of experimentation, analysis, and capability demonstration.

This individual will be responsible for managing a portfolio of concurrent projects that involve modelling & simulation applications, analysis and experimentation capabilities.

An understanding of the LM CFI operational construct including interface with external operational customers (Army/Navy/Air Force/Marine Corps), with CET&O organizations, and with LM BA programs in support of experiments, demonstrations, analysis, and technical exchanges is key.

The individual must be able to work independently under general direction on complex problems involving all phases of event planning and execution. The individual will participate in strategic, operational, and tactical level planning and management studies, assessments, and BA outreach. This individual will be required to develop presentations, worksheets, and documents utilizing Microsoft Office and should have sufficiently advanced knowledge to prepare professional presentations for leadership and customers. The selected individual will possess strong interpersonal and communications skills and demeanor to represent the LM and the CFI to customers, teammates, executive management, and staff.

This position will require some travel.
