Job Description


We have immediate job opportunities for exceptional Jr. Software Engineers. We are seeking recent college graduates and entry level professionals to join our technically deep and diverse team in Manassas, VA.

Job Description:

Looking for an energetic, motivated, self starter for a technically sophisticated and challenging position. Position involves programming a large Linux-based cluster. Career advancement possibilities limited only by your desire. If you have the ambition, we have the position.

Candidate will develop software for a variety of naval acoustic training and simulation systems. All software is developed in a Unix/Linux environment, and written in C++ utilizing various software packages (boost, python, and MPI). Software development will include designing, coding, unit testing, integration testing, and verification and validation testing. Candidate will develop sophisticated, real-time, message passing and data distribution software, numerical models, and system health and status functions. This is not an IT/database application/transaction processing type position. Work will include the development of new code and the maintenance of existing code. Our team employs an agile development approach using Scrum.

Leidos is the prime contractor for a number of training and simulation systems developed in partnership with NSWC Carderock and used throughout the US Navy. The first deployment of our largest system---the Submarine Multi-Mission Team Trainer (SMMTT), at the Norfolk Naval Base was a major Navy event, covered by the Navy News. Good Morning America subsequently stopped by to film. The Navy News reported the following customer comments regarding SMMTT.

-There is no other trainer like this in the world. The modeling and the fidelity are unmatched. Our submariners deserve it.- -This is a quantum leap in being able to make the [training] system realistic.- -The technology that backs this system up is head and shoulders above anything we have ever seen before.-

This same simulation technology is now being used to support surface and surveillance acoustic training while continuing to expand our presence in submarine training. Travel may be required to any US Navy training site including: Pearl Harbor, San Diego, Guam, Bangor, Norfolk, Groton, and Kings Bay.
