The SkyFox program is looking for software engineers to support the ground-based mission planning and command and control software to accommodate the next-generation satellite capabilities, and implementation of new ground terminals. Our complex domain requires innovative solutions to meet evolving customer needs. On SkyFox you will work with teams of talented engineers to develop and improve advanced algorithms that handle large data sets with complex constraints.
SkyFox software engineers will gain experience with the full software lifecycle including design, development, test, delivery, and maintenance. In addition to working with other software disciplines, our developers are exposed to various technologies including multi-tiered architectures, Camel, Spring, OSGi, and geospatial visualization tools. Our program is in the midst of transforming older software development practices into more modern development practices utilizing an agile framework - experience in this area is a plus. We provide robust and easy-to-use tools for reporting status and estimates to your agile team leadership - meaning more time for true problem solving.
Our small development teams adapt to evolving problem sets, and engineer benefits from a flexible work environment where engineers can migrate between teams to contribute to new domains.
