Job Description:

Leidos' Mission Systems Division is currently interviewing for the 2019 Summer Intern Program. Positions are located in Arlington (Ballston), VA and require US citizenship as well as eligibility to obtain a DoD security clearance.

We seek college entry-level technical interns to be part of a team of engineers addressing emerging challenges in Maritime Systems.

Leidos will provide the candidate with real world experience and technical and career mentorship throughout the internship, which may result in full-time employment opportunities upon graduation.

Last year's interns supported real testing as part of an integrated test team, wrote user interface and simulation software that is in use today, and took charge of our cybersecurity strategy. In addition to these kinds of tasks, other intern work assignments, depending on ability and interest, may include developing algorithms and computer models, supporting the design of autonomous vehicles, performing model runs, benchmarking hardware performance, building user interfaces, tuning radar/optical systems, and performing sea test data analysis.

The position may require paid travel during the summer to either our integration facility in Long Beach, MS, or to test facilities in the Virginia Beach, VA or San Diego, CA, areas.

Required Skills:

The candidate must currently be pursuing a degree in a related field (e.g., Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or Cybersecurity), have completed at least two years of an undergraduate curriculum, and maintain a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA (on a 4.0 scale).

The ideal candidate will have demonstrated leadership ability through community or campus involvement. Most importantly, an entrepreneurial, motivated, self-starter attitude is required. Software development or integration skills using Linux are a requirement for this position.

Desired Skills:

Experience in one of the following is helpful, but not required: surface or underwater vehicles, game theory, cybersecurity, autonomy, environmental modeling, simulations or communication protocols, human factors, or user interface development
