Principal Software Engineer - DSP

Organization: 
Raytheon
Country of Position: 
United States
Contact Name:

Start Date: 
August 29, 2019
Expiration Date: 
December 01, 2019
Position Description: 

We have an opportunity for a Sr. Principal Software Engineer within the Naval Radar Software Department in Tewksbury, Massachusetts. The Naval Radar Software Department mission is to provide world class Radar Software to be used in military systems deployed at sea and on land. Our software teams employ an Agile Scrum process to rapidly design, code, integrate and test capabilities on a continuous basis into a mature solution for our customers. We strive for technical excellence by drawing upon a diverse workforce whose knowledge base covers the complete spectrum of modern computing languages and platforms.

A work/life balance is an important value at Raytheon. Our 9/80 work schedule offers flexibility to help successfully balance the work/life commitments. Joining one of Raytheon’s employee resource groups enables our engineers to focus on networking, new hire outreach, career development and community service.

As a Sr. Principal Software Engineer, you’re responsible for designing, implementing, debugging and fixing problems with the Radar software applications, as well as supporting software integration and verification efforts. Our radar software applications, including implementations of signal processing algorithms and time critical control functions, involved in direct control of sensor systems, are developed using C++ and Java programming languages running Linux or UNIX operating systems on a variety of computing platforms. In this role you’ll work closely with Software Architects and Principal Systems, Hardware, and Software engineers to interpret requirements and correctly implement these requirements in software. There are travel opportunities available to support the radar systems at various sites.

The RSPL software is developed and delivered incrementally using Agile development methods, including Scrum, automated testing and continuous integration. Using your ability to see a "big picture” view of the radar system you’ll develop or review detail solutions at the source code level. You’ll be an active participant on the Scrum team, performing development tasks independently and you’ll use your knowledge of real-time software design to recognize the performance implications associated with specific detail implementations. 

This position will require the ability to obtain a security clearance. Except in rare circumstances, only US Citizens are eligible for a clearance

Required Skills: 

  • 10+ years’ experience with Software Engineering
  • Experience with C++
  • Experience with Linux or UNIX experience
  • Experience developing software in a team based development environment, preferably Agile/SCRUM
  • US citizenship is required

Desired Skills: 

  • Existing secret clearance, or ability to obtain an interim clearance
  • Broad real-time, multi-threaded software development experience
  • Software development experience of a Signal Processing application
  • Experience in developing and optimizing algorithms for performance
  • Experience in Agile development methods, including Scrum, automated testing and continuous integration
  • Software development experience in a DoD environment
  • Radar domain knowledge
  • Strong software integration and problem solving abilities
  • Self-starter and ability to lead development, integration and test activities
  • Familiarity with the following Software Tools: Rational Rhapsody, Clear Case and Team Concert, Jenkins, DOORS
  • Strong Object-Oriented Design Knowledge including UML
  • Direct experience implementing complex signal processing algorithms in C++ meeting latency and throughput performance requirements or experience in implementing complex control operations in software with defined performance timelines
  • Master's Degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, or Software Engineering
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills

Required Education:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, Software Engineering or STEM related
