Job Requisition:

Senior Software Engineer

Job Description:

Leidos is seeking a Software Engineer who will be a member of a dynamic team working on the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Time Based Flow Management (TBFM) program.

Time Based Flow Management (TBFM) from Leidos is an air traffic management solution that uses a complex series of algorithms to process flight data along with aircraft separation parameters to determine the most efficient use of airspace to prevent over-saturation of airport runways and/or terminals. TBFM facilitates the management of flights during the en route phase so that delays can be absorbed at higher altitudes far enough away from the destination to reduce fuel consumption and emissions associated with low altitude holds and vectoring. TBFM does this without penalizing flights with the consequences typically associated with extended arrival management such as double delay penalties or skipping in sequence. By performing small flight adjustments farther out, arrival sequencing is better optimized and no-notice holding in the terminal airspace can be eliminated. TBFM is a proven technology that is operational in all 20 FAA Air Traffic Control Centers (Area Control Centers), Air Traffic Control System Command Center, and at more than 23 U.S. airports.

The Software Development Engineer will work within the Air Traffic Management software engineering organization and will be supporting the FAA TBFM program.

Working both as a member of a team and independently the successful candidate will be:

  • Optimizing the experience for the flying public, Air Traffic Control, and the airline industry by improving the collaboration and decision-making capabilities between the gate and the tower.
  • Develop enhancements for TBFM software (consisting primarily of C, C++, and Java) on a UNIX/Linux platform within a waterfall development process.
  • Performing software development as needed for the TBFM system
  • Providing support needed for system engineering and test teams
  • Articulating user needs and requirements from high level user stories
  • Developing the design for the user interface framework including client and server side components; analyzing and designing databases within an application
  • Translate requirements into detailed software designs.
  • Develop significant expertise in assigned areas and become a go-to resource in those areas for others on the program.
  • Applicants selected will be subject to a government security investigation and must meet eligibility requirements for access to classified information.


  • Experience in object-oriented design and development with the C++ and/or Java programming language on a large-scale (>20 K-SLOC) development.
  • Experience with Git or similar version control tool.
  • Software development in a Linux/Unix environment
  • Experience with following a documented software process
  • A strong working knowledge of the software engineering life cycle
  • Excellent communication, interpersonal, analytical, and written skills
  • Self-Starter and ability to multitask
  • Ability to work effectively both individually and within a team
  • Requires BS degree and 4+ years of experience

Desired Qualifications:

  • Working experience in FAA ATC programs
  • Knowledge of Java, C, C++, scripting languages, and Linux
  • Demonstrated leadership experience
  • Familiarization with the Atlassian Tool Suite
