Software Configuration Engineer at NASA/JSC
Opportunity to serve as a Group Administrator (GA) in the Mission Control Center (MCC) at NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC). This GA position manages the software configuration on the workstations used by the flight controllers in the MCC by installing custom applications, updating data and configuration files, and writing/maintaining scripts that ensure that the applications are in the correct configuration and run as expected.
