Systems Software Engineer

The Challenge:

Are you a software engineer who’s eager to work on critical national security projects? We’re looking for a problem solver who can use technical standards and critical thinking to help the Air Force ensure nuclear systems meet safety and reliability requirements. You’ll apply software engineering standards to real-time embedded software development, testing and validation, and use emerging technologies to modernize our nation’s nuclear weapons program. You’ll partner with Federal agencies on projects that touch every aspect of the nuclear field to ensure the relevance of the U.S. nuclear program—and the safety of every person it protects.

For the right engineer, relocation benefits may apply. In our Albuquerque, New Mexico office, you won’t have to sacrifice location for an exciting career.
