Job Description

Junior to Mid Information Assurance Developer - Linux (Job Number:430117)


SAIC is currently looking for a junior to mid-level software developer with 2+ years of Linux maintenance and configuration experience to work on the JBC-P Software Support project. The duty location is in Huntsville Alabama and a Secret level security clearance is required. Candidates without an active clearance MUST be able to obtain an interim clearance for these positions.

Project Description:

Joint Battle Command Platform (JBC-P) is a joint, digital, battle command information family of systems that provides integrated, on-the-move, timely, relevant Command and Control / Situational Awareness (C2/SA) information to tactical combat, combat support and combat service support commanders, leaders, and key C2 nodes. JBC-P provides leaders a capability for selecting, managing, and assimilating relevant data and information. JBC-P allows commanders the ability to concentrate combat weapons system effects rather than combat forces, and enables units to become both more survivable and more lethal. The ability to pass orders and graphics provide the joint warfighter the capability to visualize the commander's intent and scheme of maneuver. JBC-P provides enhanced situational awareness of friendly, and reported enemy, neutral, and civilian entities (including reported international agencies and Non- Governmental Organizations). JBC-P provides command and control at the platform level across the Services enabling joint situational understanding and battlespace awareness. It affords joint warfighters the capability to gain and retain the tactical and operational initiative under all mission, enemy, terrain, troops, time and civilians (METT TC) conditions despite an accelerated tempo. JBC-P also contributes to the SA component of Combat Identification (CID) resulting in greater combat effectiveness and reduced fratricide. JBC-P is interoperable with joint C2 systems. The JBC-P system is a fielded system. The candidate will be working on SW that is being used by the warfighter every day.


Candidate will provide maintenance support and some software development for the sustainment phase of the JBC-P program. This involves maintaining the custom Linux Operating System and applying appropriate security configurations. This also involves using configuration management tools.

Candidate will be expected to understand and modify Linux system configurations, configuration files, and software versions. Candidate will also be expected to write and understand existing shell scripts.

Candidate will be required to follow existing processes for documenting and testing Operating System updates, and document new processes as needed.

Candidate will be expected to work with other JBC-P Teams when integrating sustainment changes.
