Will participate in scientific programming tasks in support of the GOES NOP Ground System. The main languages in use include C/C++ and Java. Most of the work tasks will include any aspect of the software development lifecycle from requirements analysis to design, implementation, testing and Operational delivery. Programming on multiple operating systems and platforms is ideal, although initial tasks will focus on Linux programming. Since the main focus of the systems are large-scale, Operational satellite systems, some satellite ground system knowledge is a plus. Systems engineering practices will be required from time to time but assistance will be provided if needed.
