We are an Agile team employing the Scrum framework to spec, design, code, and test embedded flight software for a variety of space flight vehicles and missions.

A sound understanding of object oriented design principles and an ability to effectively employ them is a must.
The work location for this position is at the Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company headquarters located in Littleton, CO (a suburb of Denver, CO). As the headquarters for Space Systems Company, this location is responsible for numerous exciting projects including deep space exploration, human space flight, and many varying satellite solutions.
