Software Engineer Level 1 w/ Java, Linux, and Docker

Hanover, MD · Information Technology
Join a core processing team to assist in developing the underpinnings of the processing framework. This role requires the developer to use every tool available to them, be it at command line or in the code, to solve problems of massive scale. This team determines how all data flows through our system, how and when resources within the system are tasked, and how to distribute Machine Learning tasks to video card resources for resource-intensive analytics.
The ideal candidate draws upon a good foundation of programming experience using JVM languages (Kotlin/Java), Python, or GoLang (and the desire to learn those they aren't experienced with), has fairly extensive Linux experience, and familiarity with Docker. Any combination of experience with container orchestration architectures (Mesos/Marathon, Kubernetes), databases(SQL, NoSQL), web services would all weigh heavily as assets. Familiarity with machine learning techniques and concepts is a strong plus. This member will be expected to be a leader, and contribute to technical discussions on the future of the architecture and direction of the project going forward.

Seven (7) years experience as a SWE, in programs and contracts of similar scope, type, and complexity is required. Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or related discipline from an accredited college or university is required. Four (4) years of additional SWE experience on projects with similar software processes may be substituted for a bachelor’s degree.
