Job Description

LASP is particularly proud of a work environment that supports employee creativity and productivity. Due to LASP's small size, there are many opportunities for diverse experiences and a broad range of responsibilities. The engineers work one-on-one with world-renowned researchers to design spaceflight instrumentation to learn more about our Earth, its atmosphere, and the surrounding planets.

LASP is seeking junior software engineers to participate in the development of embedded microprocessor flight software for present and upcoming space science projects. This person will be responsible for or participate in:

Assisting with design, implementation, and testing of software for ground support equipment, a science instrument or spacecraft.

This individual must be familiar with the CMMI and/or software development life-cycle phases.

B.S. or equivalent in engineering, computer science, or a closely related field is desirable.

About University of Colorado

University of Colorado Hospital is the Rocky Mountain region's leading academic hospital, which means it is always among the first - and sometimes is the first - to bring new treatments to the bedside. UCH has long been recognized as one of the United States' best hospitals by U.S. News & World Report and independent ratings agencies like HealthGrades, the American Nurse Credentialing Association and University HealthSystems Consortium. Though its practitioners provide care at many satellite clinics throughout Colorado, the hospital itself is based at the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, Co. It shares some of the most beautiful, advanced health care facilities anywhere with the physicians of the renowned, research-rich University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine.
