Software Engineer (TS/SCI w/ Full Scope Polygraph)

The Software Engineer develops, maintains, and enhances complex and diverse software systems (e.g., processing-intensive analytics, novel algorithm development, manipulation of extremely large data sets, real-time systems, and business management information systems) based upon documented requirements. Works individually or as part of a team. Reviews and tests software components for adherence to the design
requirements and documents test results. Resolves software problem reports. Utilizes software development and software design methodologies appropriate to the development environment. Provides specific input to the software components of system design to include hardware/software trade-offs, software reuse, use of Commercial Off the-shelf (COTS)/Government Off-the-shelf (GOTS) in place of new development, and requirements analysis and synthesis from system level to individual software components.

*Positions located in both Fort Meade, MD and Northern Virginia.

Software Engineer (SWE) shall possess the following capabilities:
Analyze user requirements to derive software design and performance requirements
Design and code new software or modifies existing software to add new features
Debug existing software and corrects defects
Integrate existing software into new or modified systems or operating environments
Develop simple data queries for existing or proposed databases or data repositories
Make recommendations for improving documentation and software development process
standards
Develop or implement algorithms to meet or exceed system performance and functional
standards
Assist with developing and executing test procedures for software components
Write or review software and system documentation
Develop software solutions by analyzing system performance standards, conferring with users
or system engineers; analyzing systems flow, data usage and work processes; and investigating
problem areas
Serve as team lead at the level appropriate to the software development process being used on
any particular project
Modify existing software to correct errors, to adapt to new hardware, or to improve its
performance
Design, develop and modify software systems, using scientific analysis and mathematical
models to predict and measure outcome and consequences of design
Design or implement complex database or data repository interfaces/queries
Oversees one or more software development teams and ensures the work is completed in
accordance with the constraints of the software development process being used on any particular
project
Design or implement complex algorithms requiring adherence to strict timing, system resource,
or interface constraints; Perform quality control on team products
Confer with system engineers and hardware engineers to derive software requirements and to
obtain information on project limitations and capabilities, performance requirements and interfaces
Coordinate software system installation and monitor equipment functioning to ensure
operational specifications are met
Implement recommendations for improving documentation and software development process
standards

Qualifications: Varying experience in programs and contracts of similar scope, type,
and complexity is required. Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or related discipline from an
accredited college or university is required. Four (4) years of additional software engineering experience
on projects with similar software processes may be substituted for a bachelor’s degree.
