You will work closely with sponsors, project management, and developers to design, create, test, and deploy high-quality software for a range of sponsors. You will be a primary technical leader on the team, responsible for setting the development direction, ensuring that tasks are completed on schedule, that quality standards are met, and that customer needs are satisfied. You will also have a role in mentoring a team of highly motivated engineers across a range of experience levels.

  • Are fluent in at least one major programming language such as C/C++, Java, Python, assembly, etc.
  • Have experience with field/user testing of complex technical systems
  • Have an active Secret security clearance and can ultimately obtain a TS/SCI level clearance. If selected, you will be subject to a government security clearance investigation and must meet the requirements for access to classified information. Eligibility requirements include U.S. citizenship.
  • Can demonstrate that you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19. To ensure the safety and well-being of the community, APL has established a policy requiring that all staff be vaccinated against COVID-19. All staff members must provide proof of full vaccination or have an approved medical or religious accommodation by their start date.

 

You'll go above and beyond our minimum requirements if you...

  • Have a Ph.D. in Computer/Software Engineering, Computer Science, Applied Mathematics, or another related technical discipline
  • Have experience leading projects that included implementing AI algorithms in physical systems
  • Have experience developing winning competitive proposals to US DoD agencies such as DARPA, AFRL, ONR, and ARL
