The C2BMC X-Lab is a very fast paced and dynamic environment. The X-Lab is responsible for developing and integrating future-capability prototypes for the BMDS including Sensor/Weapon Integration, Algorithm Development, User Interface Development and other critical leading-edge missile defense technologies. The X-Lab has a need to augment the team with a junior-level software engineer that holds a Secret clearance (TS/SCI desired) and possesses demonstrable skills in the following areas:
- Software engineering of new capabilities
- Software development with Java (or other object-oriented language)
- Object-Oriented development principles and patterns
- Generate detailed and repeatable tests
- Good communication skills (written and oral)
This position will focus on the integration of the R&D systems into C2BMC and will contribute to other ongoing X-Lab projects as needed. Including the assessment on how the C2BMC prototype system performs using state vectors, integrating source tracks into the prototype and assessing track processing results, generating and assessing concurrent radar and sensor tracks during M&S and live flight test events, and enhancing experimental prototypes based on results of these activities. Will apply these results to identify and work to enhance C2BMC for future operations. Must possess an understanding of software development processes and principles and be able to communicate the desired capabilities to a diverse group of developers, engineers, subject matter experts, and system users. Should be comfortable with rapidly changing requirements, design challenges that require novel solutions, fast-paced activities, and tight deadlines.
Must have [2-5] years of experience working in an integrated team environment with other systems, software, and specialty engineers to develop solutions that includes a background in all aspects of the software development life cycle. Should have demonstrated contributions to object-oriented software development and testing that included the ability to analyze high level needs and defined a structured and logical approach to refine the capability into an integrated set of requirements that led to a fielded product. Should have demonstrated the ability to communicate effectively, clearly present technical approaches and findings, and have experience in writing and implementing engineering plans within a project. Ideally, will have experience in working on IRAD-type projects.
Primary responsibility is to work as a member of the X-Lab software development team to develop and test innovative solutions in support of X-Lab projects and experiments. Non-standard work hours are highly likely during event execution and a small amount of travel may be required.
The following knowledge base and/or skills are desired: Security+, Test driven development and continuous integration, Software architecture design, Service Oriented Architecture development principles, Ability to refactor code for reusability, readability, and maintainability in an object-oriented codebase, Application deployment, integration, and troubleshooting, Operating systems experience with Windows & Unix/Linux, Experience with the Eclipse IDE, Maven, and Git, Conduct and participate in peer reviews, Ability to extract data to support analysis, Excellent communication skills (written and oral), Implementation of algorithms, Messaging interface development, Theory and application of the BMDS, Theory and application of command and control systems, Theory and application of track correlation algorithms, Familiarity with Link-16, including content, transmission rules, etc., Experience with COTS and FOSS, Using the Agile methodology for software development.
C++, Java, Linux
