Works individually or as part of a team.

  • Reviews and tests software components for adherence to the design requirements and documents test results. Resolves software problem reports.

  • Utilizes software development and software design methodologies appropriate to the development environment.

  • Provides specific input to the software components of system design to include hardware/software tradeoffs, software reuse, use of Commercial Off-the-shelf (COTS)/Government Off-the-shelf (GOTS) in place of new development, and requirements analysis and synthesis from system level to individual software components.

Job Requirements:

  • Analyze user requirements to derive software design and performance requirements.

  • Debug existing software and correct defects.

  • Provide recommendations for improving documentation and software development process standards.

  • Design and code new software or modify existing software to add new features.

  • Integrate existing software into new or modified systems or operating environments.

  • Design or implement complex database or data repository interfaces/queries.

  • Develop or implement algorithms to meet or exceed system performance and functional standards.

  • Assist with developing and executing test procedures for software components.

  • Develop software solutions by analyzing system performance standards, confer with users or system engineers; analyze systems flow, data usage and work processes; and investigate problem areas.

  • Modify existing software to correct errors, to adapt to new hardware, or to improve its performance.

  • Design, develop and modify software systems, using scientific analysis and mathematical models to predict and measure outcome and consequences of design.

  • Design or implement complex algorithms requiring adherence to strict timing, system resource, or interface constraints; Perform quality control on team products.

  • Implement recommendations for improving documentation and software development process standards

  • Oversee one or more software development teams and ensure the work is completed in accordance with the constraints of the software development process being used on any particular project.

  • Confer with system engineers and hardware engineers to derive software requirements and to obtain information on project limitations and capabilities, performance requirements and interfaces.

  • Coordinate software system installation and monitor equipment functioning to ensure operational specifications are met.

  • Recommend new technologies and processes for complex software projects.

  • Serve as the technical lead of multiple software development teams.

  • Select the software development process in coordination with the customer and system
    engineering. 

  • Ensure quality control of all developed and modified software.

  • Delegate programming and testing responsibilities to one or more teams and monitor their
    performance.

Qualifications:

  • Twenty (20) years’ experience as a SWE in programs and contracts of similar scope, type, and
    complexity is required.

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or related discipline from an accredited college or university is required.

  • Four (4) years of additional SWE experience on projects with similar software processes may be substituted for a bachelor’s degree.

  • Experience working in a minimum of two of the following: High Frequency (HF), Very High Frequency (VHF), Ultra High Frequency (UHF), Cellular Protocols, Wi-Fi, Angle of Arrival (AOA), Time Difference of Arrival (TDOA), and Frequency Difference of Arrival (FDOA)

Compensation:

Compensation will consist of a package including a base salary and complete benefits.
