Software Developer, Lead

The Challenge:

Are you looking for an opportunity to not just develop software, but to build a system that will perform Overhead Persistent Infrared (OPIR) mission data processing and support one of our nation’s most strategic missions? As a full-stack developer, you can solve a problem with a complete end-to-end solution in a fast-paced, agile environment. We’re looking for a developer with the advanced skills needed to build an OPIR mission processing framework and common services from vision to production-ready system.

This role is more than just coding. We need a full-stack developer who will use their passion to learn new tools and techniques, identify and implement system improvements, and mentor teammates. Using Agile software development, DevSecOps tools and processes, and Java and C++ you’ll build a secure, scalable, and extensible mission processing framework based on Open Systems Architecture (OSA) principles. You’ll analyze the needs and the environment to make sure the solution you’re developing considers the current architecture and operating environment, as well as future functionality and enhancements. Join us as we build systems to change OPIR ground systems processing for the better.

Empower change with us.
