We are seeking for an experienced software engineer with strong programming skills to help research, build, and enhance systems implementing distributed operations. The successful candidate will have a track record of working effectively in teams, proactively identifying issues, and independently solving problems. The candidate will have demonstrably good communication skills that facilitate collaboration on large systems development efforts. Projects within the lab will typically involve technologies such as microservices, container-based orchestration, machine learning, natural language processing, cyber security, virtualization, HTTPS/TCP/IP networking and operating system internals, thus experience with some or all of these would be a significant plus. Projects will involve a mix of research and development, and will range from applied research to advanced prototyping and demonstrations. The ideal candidate will be one who enjoys learning new skills and is able to work independently.
