Engineering Profile

Krista Gumiela
Senior Systems Engineer

With Raytheon since February 2010, Krista Gumiela is currently the spacecraft control component integration and test lead for the Mission Management Command and Control (M2C2) program, providing continuous integration expertise for next generation M2C2 software. Additionally, she’s held the position of Raytheon Young Employee Success Network (YESNET) President for the past two and a half years where she fosters and supports Raytheon’s young workforce.

YESNET supports the recruitment and development of young Raytheon professionals and new hires by providing opportunities for networking with peers and upper management, social activities, community outreach, and seminars for personal and professional growth. Gumiela looks to “shape tomorrow’s defense and intelligence landscape,” while concurrently helping “Raytheon’s young talent develop into our company’s future leaders.”

“I have been incredibly lucky,” Gumiela explains, “Through YESNET, I’ve leveraged a nationwide network to collaborate and connect with people with all types of knowledge and backgrounds, offering all kinds of opportunities and experiences. Couple that network with the enthusiasm of a yes, and attitude, and opportunity isn’t knocking on my door – it’s smashing it open.”

Prior to her current role, Gumiela was a systems engineer for the Advanced Targeting Forward Looking Infrared (ATFLIR) program. Serving as a mechanical resource on the ATFLIR Reliability team, she supported the production, field maintenance and returns programs, identifying product failure trends, investigating root causes and providing corrective actions on production line and field use. She presented at the 2011 Raytheon Systems Engineering and Architecture Symposium on Dynamic Modeling of a System, which earned an Invention Disclosure award from Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems.

Before joining Raytheon, Gumiela served internships at Alliant Techsystems (ATK) in advanced technology process engineering and Johnson Controls in automative electronics. She holds a Bachelor of Science degree in mechanical engineering and is in the process of earning a Master of Science degree in aerospace engineering, both from Purdue University.
