Job Description

STR is hiring a Signal Processing Software Engineer to support the development and implementation of advanced signal processing for a variety of sensor system domains including space, airborne, and undersea. The perfect SW Engineer will have experience implementing signal processing algorithms for military applications, a background in relevant engineering disciplines (signal processing, aerospace, undersea, command and control), and be proficient at programming in either C or C++ (preferably both) and have at least a working knowledge of MATLAB and Python. The Software Engineer should have a strong understanding of the complete software life cycle (requirements, design, development, integration, and test). Additionally, the SW Engineer should be able to work with algorithm creators/designers to re-interpret and implement current and novel algorithms with an eye toward efficiency and optimization (time, memory, etc.). We expect the software systems we develop and deliver to meet standards of quality, maintainability, and reuse. Therefore, experience with sound software engineering principles, as well as software unit test tools and methodologies are valuable.

The Software Engineer will work in a small team on tasks including software design, development, unit and integration testing and documentation for a variety of sensor applications. The SW Engineer will develop software with an eye toward architectural alignment of capabilities and will follow good coding hygiene by performing design and code reviews. This position will offer the opportunity for technical leadership, project planning, design analysis, software development, software testing, and fielding of capabilities. The role will require the SW Engineer to interpret and understand requirements as they relate to the capabilities we deliver. This position is within the System Development Division group, which works across space, airborne, and undersea sensor systems and the C2 capabilities that enable them.
