Your future role


Take on a new challenge and apply your expertise in a new cutting-edge field.  You will report directly to the CEE RAM Group Manager. Internally, you will interface with the Projects or Programs Core teams, the Engineering Métiers (System, Hardware, Software, Verification & Validation, etc.), but also with the Cybersecurity, Tenders, Sourcing, Installation, Warranty & Maintenance teams. You will also be in contact with customers, suppliers and subcontractors, and with the worldwide D&IS RAM community.

You will contribute to the design and the improvement of the Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Testability performance.

You will lead, coordinate, and perform all the activities from the Tender phase up to the Operational phase, to ensure that our solutions are reliable, maintainable, and available. For this, you will identify the best architecture according to the RAM performance requirements, customer’s needs and operational conditions. You will also guarantee a risk control for each requirement related to RAM and perform continuous reliability growth activities in projects and programs.

To guarantee the optimal performance level of our systems, you will be accountable for the main Reliability, Availability and Maintainability aspects over the lifecycle phases of the solutions.


You’ll specifically take care of essential safety and reliability analyses for complex, high-risk projects.


We’ll look to you for:


  • Carry out RAM (Reliability Availability Maintainability) related activities in Projects & Programs in line with the Quality Cost Delivery (QCD) objectives and look for optimization of RAM performance while being mindful of other constraints (such as life cycle cost, safety, standards, etc.)
  • Make Design recommendations based on RAM studies (‘Design for Reliability’, ‘Design for Maintainability’, ‘Design for Testability’…) and check the adherence of the architecture choices to System and Customers’ RAM targets
  • Perform Reliability and Lifetime predictions, Failure Modes & Effects Analysis (FMEA), Availability & Service Reliability modelling, Reliability Block Diagrams, Fault Tree Analysis, Degraded modes analysis and conduct Maintainability and Testability studies
  • Support Tender and Sourcing teams to choose and integrate the products and systems in the projects.

  • Structured, organized, rigorous,
  • Team player and proactive behaviour,
  • A flexible approach and the ability to work effectively against deadlines,
  • Great problem identification and solving skills,

  • Creativity and negotiation skills (tenders, failure reviews),
  • Fully proficient English
