Would you like to be writing mission-critical software for some of the largest scientific endeavors on the planet? Would you like to be part of a highly skilled international team of engineers and scientists pushing the boundaries of humankind’s knowledge of the universe?
The National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO) is seeking to recruit a full-time software engineer to design, develop and maintain code for their radio interferometer data reduction and analysis pipeline. The pipeline is used for the vast majority of data processing by users of the ALMA and VLA telescopes. Pipeline Software Engineers are responsible for all aspects of the software engineering lifecycle, from requirements derivation through design, development, testing and maintenance of code used in telescope data processing. They must be capable of formulating complex technical solutions suitable for operational deployment from broad scientific objectives in a research environment. They must possess both software engineering domain knowledge as well as the educational background and ability to understand the basic scientific concepts of radio interferometry.
The position will be based at either our headquarters in Charlottesville, VA (preferred) on the grounds of the University of Virginia (www.virginia.edu); or at the Science Operations Center in Socorro, NM on the campus of New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology (www.nmt.edu). Socorro is a small, historical town in the Rio Grande Valley, 75 miles south of Albuquerque.
Responsibilities will include, but are not limited to:
Bachelor's degree in computer science, engineering, scientific, or related field is required; highly relevant experience may be considered in lieu of Bachelor's degree.
Advanced degree and background that includes physics or mathematics is highly desired.
At least one year of direct or related experience in software development commensurate with state qualifications. Candidates with progressively more responsible experience will be considered for a higher-level position ranking.
