BAE Systems

Merrimack, NH

Job Description
Because of the need for consistent, in-person collaboration and/or the requirement to perform all work onsite due to the nature of this particular role, it will be performed full-time on site.
This means work will be conducted on location at a BAE Systems facility 100% of the time.

Do you have experience writing code in Java?  Do you love Linux?  We need your talents and experience as a Senior Software Engineer on our Space systems team.  

You will join a team of engineers on a program that provides customers with scalable data processing enabling real-time situational awareness in support of the warfighter.  You will have the opportunity to build upon and modernize existing software capabilities. Tired of learning a new program every 6 months?  Our position provides stable work on a multi-year contract.  Stressed out by a rapid software release cycle?  We typically have one major release a year.

When you become a member of our team, you will work across multiple disciplines and collaborate with our Systems, Hardware and Test Engineers to impact all phases of the Software Development Lifecycle. At BAE Systems, we promote a strong, collaborative culture and provide our employees with the tools, skills and training they need to succeed. We offer a flexible work environment and multiple options for work schedules (9/80, 4/10, and others). Our company is part of the community and driven to improve our future and protect our freedom.

If you have worked previously in a secure environment and enjoy contributing to a mission that matters, we’d love to meet you!
