Seeking a software engineer to perform as one of the software engineers in the development and integration of cross domain security solutions and other security technologies in a small team environment. These activities are across the development lifecycle from concept development, design, and implementation. To accomplish these activities candidates will need to apply a diverse skillset in software engineering, system engineering & administration, integration, test and system security. Customers often come to our unit with a goal in mind, but they need our help to realize it. As such, candidates should be able to analyze requirements to ensure overall testability, and then develop appropriate software design, test plans, and procedures. Since we are a small team with a small, dedicated testing staff, candidates should also be able to assist in the execution of functional, performance, and security tests and support debug of system issues. While a separate part of the team does oversee maintenance activities, candidates may be called upon to review existing programs and assist in making refinements to aid in reducing operating time and/or improving current development methods.
As a junior member of the team, the candidate will be expected to support the Solutions Architect and the development team. Candidates will be responsible for managing the software configuration for the systems and ensuring accuracy of technical documentation.
