Job description

In the frame of U400 Program, the Baseline Leader is in charge to manage QCD (Quality Cost Deadline) for the delivery of Baselines to Projects deploying U400 CBTC Solution.

This role will directly report to the System Engineering Manager.


The Baseline Leader/ Program Engineer will be responsible to:

Manage the scope of the baseline:

  • Define the scope of the baseline in accordance with project teams using the baseline:
    • Specific project needs
    • Generic developments coming from R&D
    • Feedback coming from other baselines
    • Improvement requested by safety team (continuous enhancement/robustness)
  • Validate the technical design choices (with peers if needed)
Manage the QCD of the baseline:
  • Quality:
    • Based on the scope of the baseline, ensure that all the new developments are validated and that all requirements are covered
    • Ensure that the restriction of the baseline are limited and acceptable by project team
  • Cost:
