Leidos is seeking a Senior System Engineer to support a modeling and simulation development effort. The job will be tightly integrated into a larger development and fielding team, with an emphasis on providing technical advice/input that impacts strategic development in an Agile environment. Frequent customer interaction is expected and the need to react and adjust quickly is an absolute necessity. This position will play a critical role in bridging the gap between the system architect, the overall program development roadmap and strategy, and the underlying system engineering team to incorporate areas such as software engineering and product support. As the environment is large and complex, the position is expected to require active efforts in team building, and staff development.
The successful candidate must possess mastery of distributed computing and data access, computer virtualization, network implementation and addressing issues such as latency in displays/system responses. The position should expect to confront highly complex and multi-dimensional problems integrating computer simulations, virtual 3D displays, multi-tiered control interfaces, distributed computing environments, cloud based data storage, and delivery of services/solutions to a widely dispersed user community. The expectation from this position is the support and deployment of technologies in the field of simulation based training in an Agile and DevSecOps development environment.
