Job Description:

Leidos is currently looking for a Software Engineer with an emphasis in Digital Signal Processing (DSP) to join a long-standing development program. You will enjoy great benefits such as 5 weeks of Paid Time Off, Flexible Schedules, Discounted Stock Purchase Plans, Unlimited Education and Training Support, Paid Parental Leave, Paid Disability Leave, Safe Work Environments AND much more!

We are seeking a Software Developer with strong C++ skills and an understanding of Digital Signals Processing (DSP) to join our application development team. The SWE will translate system requirements into software requirements, perform software design, and implement streaming services in an agile environment. The candidate must have an understanding of DSP and/or strong math skills, as well as the ability to translate that understanding into software. The technology stack includes back-end processing on CUDA/GPU devices, data streaming using WebSocket APIs, and deployment in an orchestrated cloud native environment (Kubernetes/Docker). Day to day activities include working with domain Subject Matter Experts (SME) and Systems Engineers to fully understand system requirements; translating new and existing DSP algorithms into micro-services; working with SMEs, user interface developers, and testers to validate developed services; and developing unit and integration tests.

Role & Responsibilities:

  • Analyze user requirements to derive software design and performance requirements

  • Debug existing software and correct defects

  • Provide recommendations for improving documentation and software development process standards

  • Design and code new software or modify existing software to add new features

  • Integrate existing software into new or modified systems or operating environments

  • Develop simple data queries for existing or proposed databases or data repositories

  • Write or review software and system documentation

  • Serve as team lead at the level appropriate to the software development process being used on any particular project

  • Design or implement complex database or data repository interfaces/queries

  • Develop or implement algorithms to meet or exceed system performance and functional standards

  • Assist with developing and executing test procedures for software components

  • Develop software solutions by analyzing system performance standards, confer with users or system engineers; analyze systems flow, data usage and work processes; and investigate problem areas

  • Modify existing software to correct errors, to adapt to new hardware, or to improve its performance

  • Design, develop and modify software systems, using scientific analysis and mathematical models to predict and measure outcome and consequences of design

  • Design or implement complex algorithms requiring adherence to strict timing, system resource, or interface constraints: Perform quality control on team products

  • Implement recommendations for improving documentation and software development process standards

  • Oversee one or more software development teams and ensure the work is completed in accordance with the constraints of the software development process being used on any particular project

  • Confer with System Engineers and Hardware Engineers to derive software requirements and to obtain information on project limitations and capabilities, performance requirements and interfaces

  • Coordinate software system installation and monitor equipment functioning to ensure operational specifications are met

Required Skills & Experience:

  • Fourteen ( 14) years' experience as a SWE in programs and contracts of similar scope, type, and complexity is required. Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or related discipline from an accredited college or university is required. Four (4) years of additional software engineering experience on projects with similar software processes may be substituted for a Bachelor's Degree

  • Significant C/C++ development, object-oriented design, ability to decompose algorithms written in Java, and experience optimizing C++ for performance.

  • The ability to understand, maintain, and enhance complex baselines; a working knowledge or background in DSP, RADAR theory, or high-level Math; and an understanding of streaming protocols and WebAssembly API

  • Experience using the NVIDIA CUDA Toolkit is a huge plus
