Mbr Engrg Staff/ Software Engineer
- Mount Laurel, NJ
Description:At Lockheed Martin Rotary and Mission Systems, we are driven by innovation and integrity. We believe that by applying the highest standards of business ethics and visionary thinking, everything is within our reach - and yours as a Lockheed Martin employee. Lockheed Martin values your skills, training and education. Come and experience your future! By applying for this role you will be considered for enterprise wide opportunities within Lockheed Martin for the same or similar skill set.
The software engineer will work in an engineering and production environment with cutting edge hardware & systems. This exciting work will include working with other engineering fields (software, hardware, systems, naval, QA, human factors) with top notch skills developing many best-in-class products and solutions.
The software engineer will contribute to a wide variety of projects as our business needs evolve. The work may include requirements gathering, DSP or FPGA design, firmware development, software testing and debugging, embedded development, modeling & simulations development, and even C++ and Java software applications development. In our group we do wear a lot of hats and as our business and product needs change our engineers will jump from DSP or firmware to VHDL or to MatLab simulations and sometimes to C++ or Java applications development as well. This broad mix technical needs creates a great opportunity for our team members to build their skills sets and broaden their backgrounds rather than being limited to just one skill set.
This skilled and astute software engineering professional is responsible for embedded software or firmware development activities related to real-time digital signal processing equipment or embedded systems. The software engineer will perform the research, design, development, and testing of COTS or custom computing and real-time signal processing firmware / software applications. If selected you will be responsible for performing software/firmware development assignments from requirements through final testing. The software engineer will work with domain specialists and military documentation to define requirements, use cases, and sequence diagrams. The software engineer will design system components using Object Oriented methods. This person will implement components in C++. The selected candidate will take a great interest and will carefully document software design and development activities.
The ability to take responsibility for increasingly difficult tasks, complete them on schedule and document and present the results will be very helpful in this position. The ability to apply design patterns and object oriented programming will be developed.
The software engineer may be assigned to support Six Sigma style cross functional product development or process improvement teams and contribute to those teams' collective efforts.
Unlike many other computer engineering roles our role will offer the opportunity to develop software applications in C++ and Java so if you like software development as well as the more typical software engineering duties this role will be great for you. An interest in learning more about and using IBM Rational ClearCase, DOORS, J2EE Development, XML, Service Oriented Architectures, WEB Services, distributed computer architectures, Web-based architectures, or OMG's CORBA products would also offer additional synergy for us.
We offer a continuous learning environment with strong career growth and advancement opportunities.
BS Degree in Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Applied Mathematics, Physics, or closely related technical field. Candidates should have extensive years of professional level experience in at least one area: C/C++ programming and/or JAVA programming. Academic and/or educational experience with design and development of software using JAVA or C++ is required. Must have the ability to obtain & maintain a secret security clearance.
An MS level degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Applied Mathematics, Physics, or closely related technical field may be desirable. Experience with VxWorks is desirable. FPGA design experience with VHDL or C++ Object Oriented Design is desired. C or assembly programming experience is desired. Experience with Digital Circuits and Digital Signal Processing is desired. Experience with RTOS is desired. Radar domain knowledge would be a plus. A working knowledge of Eclipse IDE is desired. Experience with MATLAB is desired for our modeling and simulations work.
A demonstrated interest and ability to learn new tools and technologies and successfully leverage those to successfully complete projects in a timely manner. Demonstrated ability to communicate clearly and effectively both verbally and in writing. The ability to collaborate effectively. The ability to research technical challenges and provide effective solutions. The ability to work well in a team environment and independently.
