To our valued Leidos candidates:

Coronavirus is on everyone's mind with the effects being felt around the world. The markets are volatile, and we're all concerned for the health and safety of our families, friends, and colleagues. Please know that we're taking all necessary measures to safeguard our employees, customers and the communities in which we live, including following all recommended best practices around social distancing.

With that in mind, in an abundance of caution, we are canceling all face to face career events, such as job fairs and open house events. In the coming days and weeks, we will be hosting career events virtually, using our online chat tools so that we may continue our hiring practice safely and securely. You can find available virtual career events at https://career-events.leidos.com.

We are using telephone meetings and online chats via Brazen to conduct interviews and hiring discussions, and we are offering options for video interviews so that you can have a virtual face to face meeting with your potential new leader. We do not conduct interviews or extend offers via text or chat based social media, such as WhatsApp or MySpace.

Leidos will never ask you to provide payment-related information at any part of the employment application process, nor will Leidos ever advance money as part of the hiring process. And Leidos will communicate with you only through emails that are generated by Leidos.com automated system. If you receive an email purporting to be from Leidos that asks for payment-related information or any other personal information, please report the email to Chris Scalia, Leidos’ Senior Vice President of Talent Acquisition, at [email protected].

As a company, as a country, as a world, we have confronted challenging moments before. We are confident that, guided by our values and the strength of our community as well as the commitment we have to the important work we do each day, we will find our way through this time together. We will do this with the care and concern for one another and the common good that defines. Please keep those impacted by the virus in your thoughts.

Job Description:

Job Description

Leidos is rated in LinkedIn’s top 40, and is rapidly climbing the Fortune 500. Unlike many companies in the defense industry, we offer challenging and meaningful problems, a collaborative culture, and support for your career goals and growth.

We are seeking talented Software Engineers to join our team in enhancing our live streaming video applications and services, which are in active use by our global customers. This opportunity could be located in Dayton, OH or Charlottesville, VA.

JOB SUMMARY:
You will help build and maintain our live streaming video applications for video analysts.

Because our team works with a variety of languages (C++, Java, Javascript, Python) and technologies (Docker, Puppet, NiFi, etc), we are less concerned with specific skills than proven technical problem solving abilities. Help us achieve our vision: sub-second latency for live video delivery and playback in both desktop and browser-based clients, with pluggable, horizontally scalable backend components supporting ingest, variable bit rates, and analyst workflows.

PRIMARY RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Design, develop, and debug mission critical software source code.
  • Participate in the full software development lifecycle.
  • Research and integrate new technologies into our development and production systems.
  • Write and prototype API specifications for Test-Driven Development.
  • Serve as technical lead for small projects and mentor other engineers.
  • Work on the hardest open problems in live-streamed video.


REQUIRED QUALIFICATIONS:-

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science or related field and a minimum of 5 years of software engineering experience (additional years of experience may be considered in lieu of a degree).
  • Strong proficiency using at least one high-level programming language (Java, C++, etc.).
  • Knowledge of Agile Development methodologies
  • Familiarity with basic web technologies including HTML, CSS, XML, SOAP, WSDL, REST, JSON, and JavaScript.
  • Demonstrable problem solving skills.

SECURITY CLEARANCE REQUIREMENTS: U.S. citizenship and the ability to obtain a TS/SCI clearance.

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS:

  • Experience with Test-Driven Development.
  • Familiarity with at least one Relational Database Management System (Oracle, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQL Server, etc.).
  • Familiarity with NoSql databases (Apache Accumulo, MongoDB, etc.).
  • Experience with Spring or video transcoding.
  • Prior work or hobbyist projects with ffmpeg, libdash, or angular.js.
  • QT and/or web graphical user interface development experience.
