Space Command and Control (C2) programs are intended to consolidate tactical-level command and control capabilities for Department of Defense space assets through use of a more streamlined operator workflow, to identify and monitor threats to U.S. space assets, and execute the appropriate courses of action. These programs will utilize Agile development to provide this capability more quickly and responsively to the operators and decision makers. We seek applicants with minimum 5-10 years of work experience who are proficient at programming in multiple high-level languages (e.g., C/C++, Python) for building software tools and distributed applications. We expect the software systems we develop and deliver to meet standards of quality, maintainability, and reuse. Therefore, experience with sound software engineering principles as well as software unit test tools and methodologies is valuable. This is a great opportunity for someone without a clearance or prior Defense industry experience to transition their career and be part of a stable and growing company, while enjoying mentorship and career opportunities that grow their software development and testing skills.

The Role:

STR is hiring a Senior Software Engineer to work in a small team on tasks including software design, development, unit and integration testing and documentation for mature software that will be used across multiple organizations. The Senior Software Engineer will write software with an eye toward architectural alignment of capabilities and will follow good coding hygiene by performing design and code reviews. The Senior Software Engineer will be responsible for delivering modular and extensible interface capabilities that will be used in experiments, demonstrations, and operational systems. This position will offer the opportunity for technical leadership, project planning, design analysis, software development, software testing, end user training, sustainment, and fielding of capabilities in support of emerging C2 and system requirements. The role will require the developer to interpret and understand end user requirements as they relate to the capabilities we deliver. This position is within the System Development Division group, which works across space, airborne, and undersea sensor systems and the C2 capabilities that enable them.

Who You Are:

  • BS in Computer Science or related technical field or equivalent experience
  • Minimum 5-10 years of professional experience developing, testing, and integrating complex software systems, primarily focused on full stack or backend development, including associated documentation
  • Demonstrated expertise in C90, Java, Python, bash and/or C++
  • Experience with software scripting and build automation tools (e.g. bash, make), using virtualization to deploy containerized solutions (VMware, docker) on Windows and Linux (CentOS, RHEL)
  • Experience with Agile lifecycle methodologies and tools and/or a DevSecOps environment
  • Comfortable updating and adding to a shared codebase within explicit and implicit architecture, coding philosophy and style guides
  • Demonstrated ability to quickly adopt new languages, libraries, and technologies
  • Ability to obtain a Security clearance

Even Better:

  • Active Security Clearance
  • Previous experience with user-facing capability development in a relevant technical domain
  • Demonstrated expertise in integration of capabilities spanning disparate development platforms and languages
  • Experience with git/Gitlab
  • Experience with compiler technologies
  • Experience deploying software on DoD program-of-record systems
  • Prior participation in an open-source community
  • Experience with Agile lifecycle methodologies and tools and/or a DevSecOps environment
