Description

Job Description:

Leidos is currently interviewing for Software Engineer internships located in Long Beach, MS.

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.

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 test facilities in the Virginia Beach, VA or San Diego, CA, areas.

Requires US citizenship as well as eligibility to obtain a DoD security clearance.

The ideal candidate will have demonstrated leadership ability through community or campus involvement. Most importantly, an entrepreneurial, motivated, self-starter attitude is required.
