If so, this is the perfect opportunity for you.


As a Software Engineer for M&S development, you will...

Develop software for a large, medium-fidelity multiple combat system performance simulation. 

  • Develop an understanding of the code base for the simulation framework integrating multiple combat system models. 
  • Work in a software engineering team environment to integrate existing combat system simulations, design and develop code to represent current and future combat systems, force-level interactions (e.g., sensor and weapon coordination), environmental effects and the response of the combat systems to simulated degradations. 
  • Design, develop, and execute automated regression tests to ensure the accuracy of the simulation. 
  • Support development and improvement of the simulation framework.
  • Work closely with combat system analysts to understand new functionality needs, interpret results, diagnose and rectify bugs, and to collectively define the future growth path of the simulation. 







You meet the minimum qualifications for this position if you have:

  • BS degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Physics, Mathematics, or equivalent. 
  • At least 1 - 5 years experience with C and/or C programming languages.
