Job Description:

Are you interested in joining a community of diverse, dynamic, professional engineers? Are you a Software Engineer who is looking for an opportunity to work in a collaborative environment which is characterized by respect for the individual and problem solving in a team setting? Our company is focused on achieving excellence through thought and teamwork while leveraging individual diversity. Our team makes a difference in protecting our military men and women both at home and overseas.

We have an opportunity within the Naval Radar Software Department for a position at the Raytheon Tewksbury, Massachusetts facility. The Naval Radar Software Department mission is to provide world class Radar Software to be used in military systems deployed at sea and on land. Our software teams employ an Agile Scrum process to rapidly design, code, integrate and test capabilities on a continuous basis into a mature solution for our customers. We strive for technical excellence by drawing upon a diverse workforce whose knowledge base covers the complete spectrum of modern computing languages and platforms.

A work/life balance is an important value at Raytheon. Our 9/80 work schedule offers flexibility to help successfully balance the work/life commitments. Joining one of Raytheon’s employee resource groups enables our engineers to focus on networking, new hire outreach, career development and community service.

The successful candidate will be responsible for designing, implementing, debugging and fixing problems with the Radar software applications, as well as supporting software integration and verification efforts. Our radar software applications, including implementations of signal processing algorithms and time critical control functions, involved in direct control of sensor systems, are developed using C++ and Java programming languages running Linux or UNIX operating systems on a variety of computing platforms. This position will also include working closely with Software Architects and Principal Systems, Hardware, and Software engineers to interpret requirements and correctly implement these requirements in software. There are travel opportunities available to support the radar systems at various sites.

The RSPL software is developed and delivered incrementally using Agile development methods, including Scrum, automated testing and continuous integration. The candidate will be an active participant on the Scrum team, performing development tasks independently. This successful candidate will employ their understanding of real-time software design to recognize the performance implications associated with specific detail implementations. The candidate will use the "big picture” view of the radar system to develop or review detail solutions at the source code level.
