Job Description

Job Description
Join a small team of dedicated people helping to develop and improve the Global Hawk unmanned aerial system!

Global Hawk is a high altitude, long endurance unmanned aerial reconnaissance platform combining optical- and radar-based intelligence gathering with semi-autonomous, ground-based command and control. Raytheon IIS develops the ground segment of the Global Hawk platform, which provides user interfaces for aircraft command and control, as well as imagery product dissemination functionality.
We are looking for an experienced software professional to join our team at the Global Hawk System Center in San Diego, California. We provide domain knowledge and support for integration and test activities here in the GHSC, and act as the first line of defense for issues found during field operations. Supporting the GHSC requires a thorough understanding not only the components we support, but also the “big picture” – how Raytheon’s contributions to the program ultimately interact with the rest of a large, sophisticated platform.
Successful candidates will have excellent software and technical skills, and will put those skills to use providing integration test support and root-cause analysis of issues found during test. Tasking of concurrent projects happens frequently, so the ability to balance priorities and see projects through to completion is a necessity. As we are often interfacing with end users, engineers, and other field personnel, strong written and verbal communication skills are key.
Typical activities can include: GH Ground Segment software installation, Unix and Linux system configuration, network troubleshooting and analysis, software troubleshooting and analysis, system performance analysis, and providing technical, software, or system insights to the larger development team. There are often opportunities to develop software tools to expedite test and operational scenarios not covered by the core software product. Self-starters, especially those with a “walk the halls” attitude, will be most successful in this role.
This position does involve occasional travel to sites both within and outside the continental US, as well as periodic evening and weekend work. Shift differential and travel benefits apply.

Minimum active DoD secret clearance required.

Required Skills

  • 4 years software development OR software maintenance experience for Unix or Red Hat Linux systems
  • Strong understanding of object-oriented software development best-practices
  • Strong understanding of networking concepts (TCP/IP fundamentals, switching, routing, NAT, VoIP)
  • Understanding of SQL database administration and interaction
  • Understanding of computer system architecture
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
Desired Skills

  • 6 years direct software development experience in Java, C/C++, and/or Python
  • Unix shell scripting experience
  • System/Network administration experience in primarily Unix/Red Hat Enterprise Linux environments (experience with NIS, NFS)
  • ESXi/vSphere – Vitual Machine Management
  • Solar Winds – Network and host monitoring and management
  • Active Directory – GPO and user management
  • Postgres & general DB management
  • HBSS – Host Based Security System
  • Networking – General and specifically the Nexus technologies
  • Win Server 2012
