Job Description

General Dynamics Mission Systems has an immediate opening for a On-Site Senior Software Engineer.   This position provides an opportunity to further advance the cutting-edge technology that supports some of our nation’s core defense/intelligence services and systems.  General Dynamics Mission Systems employees work closely with esteemed customers to develop solutions that allow them to carry out high-stakes national security missions.

 

The On-Site Senior Software Engineer position requires someone with a keen ability to rapidly solve software challenges and communicate effectively with the customer, team and end users on a highly important and exciting program. The ideal candidate must be able to work independently under pressure and effectively identify, recommend and solve mission related issues when software solutions are needed.

In addition to solving ongoing operational problems, novel software solutions will be greatly valued, especially using the latest accepted software technologies. On-site software implementations and prototypes will be evaluated and migrated back into the formal software baseline at the factory.

 

The ideal candidate will have a general passion for software solutions and will possess an inquisitive mind that can quickly adapt and work effectively with the entire on-site team.

  • Java
  • Web Development
  • PHP
  • JavaScript
