MIT Lincoln Laboratory Software Developer/Tester in Colorado Springs, Colorado
The nation’s satellites perform important civil, scientific, and national defense functions such as navigation, communications, weather forecasting, astronomical observations, and surveillance. As space becomes increasingly congested and contested, maintaining awareness of all man-made objects around the Earth is critical for ensuring the safe and effective operation of U.S. satellites. Our researchers are designing, developing, and testing software tools that will help both military and civil organizations track, monitor, and protect these national assets. These software tools include advanced image processing capabilities that rapidly ingest data from various ground and space-based sensors, and integrate that data to generate an accurate picture of the space environment around the Earth and to make predictions about evolving activity in space. This software is fielded to organizations such as the United States Space Force in order to maintain situational awareness in the space domain and to respond to rapidly changing events in space.
The Information Integration and Decision Support Group is seeking an applications developer to develop space surveillance system software at our Colorado Field Site. Tasks include image processing software design and development, user interface development, troubleshooting of software and data processing issues, and interfacing with mission partners and users. Interaction with Space Force and industry partner operations teams will be required in order to integrate software, ensure functionality, and to occasionally resolve anomalies. The candidate should have experience with software development in Java and other related object-oriented languages. Assignments will require the candidate to work independently and in a team environment. Strong communication and interpersonal skills are essential for this role. We are seeking highly motivated, exceptionally bright and creative individuals who can think broadly, analyze complex problems, implement solutions in a rapid prototyping environment, and who wish to contribute to the development of cutting edge technology in support of National Security.
Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Physics, Mathematics, or related field.
