Leidos is seeking an engineer to work as a software and field test engineer for an autonomous ship project. They will be joining an existing team which has already successfully delivered for our customers. Successful engineers will focus on solving problems, connecting with other members of the team, and sharing responsibility for making our systems work.
The engineer will develop software and perform field tests using that software on our autonomous and unmanned surface vessels. Software development is full lifecycle, including documentation and testing as part of an integrated Scrum team. Our team’s development focuses include cybersecurity, communications, autonomy, and network engineering.
Field testing is all about taking what your team has produced and seeing it in action, and collaborating with other engineers to find solutions to problems. Testing occurs in several locations, including southern California, the Gulf Coast, and the Hampton Roads, Virginia, area. Field tests are scheduled in advance, and the engineer will support them in rotation with other members of the team. During a field test, the engineer will communicate with customer and partner organizations to understand system performance, so communications skills are key to success.
Our team develops and deploys advanced technology solutions that address existing and emerging maritime missions of national importance for a broad range of customers across the Department of Defense, Intelligence Community, other governmental agencies and commercial clients.
