Job Description

You will be part of a small (1-6 person), multi-disciplinary team that has full responsibility for product development from requirements gathering to final product delivery. You may be involved in all areas of development (i.e. requirements analysis, high and low level design, coding, documentation, and testing and validation). Our products are developed to very high standards of quality and reliability and you will have the opportunity to learn the department s software process during all development activities.

Basic Requirements

* Candidate must be pursuing a Bachelors or Masters degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Software Engineering or related engineering degree

* Candidate graduation date must occur between December 2018 and June 2019

* Candidate must be a U.S. citizen with ability to obtain necessary security clearance as required by government contract. (See note below)

* You should be skilled in Java, C, C++, or Dalvik. Strong preference will be given to candidates also familiar with working in a Linux development environment. Clearcase or GIT skills are also a plus.

* Ideal candidates have experience working with communications protocols, operating system internals, Linux and/or Android development, or driver development.

* This position is for embedded software work, and therefore is not a good match for developers wishing to focus on .NET, C#, Rails, or other high level application/web technologies.

* Excellent verbal and written communication skills are important. You will present status of your progress to other team members and to management. You may also have the opportunity to interact with our customers.

* NOTE: A candidate for full-time employee in our department must be a U.S. citizen with ability to obtain necessary security clearance as required by government contract. As an intern there will not be a need to apply for security clearance, but if an internship is converted to a full-time position, the candidate must obtain the necessary security clearance.
