Job Qualifications:

Aurora Flight Sciences is a world leader in the development of highly autonomous aircraft.  Our mission is to apply autonomy and robotics to the development, production, and operation of advanced aircraft.  We aim to change the way we travel.

We frequently achieve what others can’t due to a combination of experience, persistence, collaboration, and a culture of innovation.  Projects are ambitious and risky. We apply breakthrough technologies to create a new state of the art, rather than advancing the old one. 

This is your chance to make history with us.  We are seeking experts and explorers across the lifecycle of vehicle development.  Cross-disciplinary interests are strongly desired; we love people that combine world-class expertise with a diverse background and interesting hobbies.

We are currently seeking a Contracts Manager to manage contracts, subcontracts, and proposal efforts within the Research and Technology Center’s portfolio. The successful candidate must (1) be thoroughly familiar with the FARs, DFARs, USC and related regulations as well as commercial requirements, (2) be experienced working both as a prime contractor and in a subcontractor environment, and (3) have in depth knowledge of all contract types (FFP, CPFF, CPIF, LOE, etc.).  Work will encompass a wide variety of applications including substantial new business support, ongoing programs, R&D contracts, production and prototyping.  The Contracts Manager will work closely with Finance, Program Office(s) and other functional departments for resolution of issues prior to negotiating and executing agreements and through the administration of the agreements.  Applicant will need knowledge of the ITAR and EAR to support the efforts out of the Cambridge office and ensure compliance.  Applicant should be comfortable working in a rapidly growing organization, interacting with all levels of the organization, show the capability of being a strong leader and self-starter, work under minimum supervision and be an integral part in leading change processes.

  • Prepare/review agreements for customers, business partners, subcontractors & prime contractors to include:  NDAs, teaming agreements, contracts, subcontracts, consulting agreements, term conditions, etc.

  • Prepare RFPs for subcontractors/vendors as required coordinate flow down provisions with purchasing.

  • Set up new contract efforts in the company’s enterprise resource planning tool.

Minimum Requirements:

  • Bachelor's degree is required, preferably in management, business administration or contracts administration unless candidate has acceptable level of comparable experience.  Advance degrees such as MS or JD are preferred.
