Software Lead for Microservices App - Sign on bonus



Full Time

On Site


Reston, Virginia, United States

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 building cloud native applications? Have you re-architected existing software into a resilient containerized cloud based solution? We need your talent, motivation, and vision as a Software Engineering Lead for a Cloud-Native Microservices solution with our team. The main location for the team is in Merrimack, NH but this role can be located at our San Diego, CA, Reston, VA, or Merrimack, NH locations. Engineers who work in San Diego or Reston will require occasional trips to NH to meet with the team.

You will join a team of engineers on a program that provides customers with scalable Software Defined Radio (SDR) platforms, utilizing on-site servers and cloud resources for the processing of complex Signals Of Interest (SOIs), enabling real-time situational awareness in support of the warfighter.

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.
