At the SEI Emerging Technology Center, we describe our work as "making the recently possible mission-practical." We help our government customers stay at the leading edge of technology by identifying, demonstrating, extending, and applying emerging software technologies to solve real government problems. We currently work in the fields of human-machine interaction, applied artificial intelligence and machine learning, and advanced computing--areas that are changing and progressing rapidly. As we show our customers how new technologies can improve their mission capabilities through rapid prototyping and iterative development, we both rely on and shape academic and industrial research.
Are you creative, curious, energetic, collaborative, technology-focused, and hard-working? Are you interested in making a difference by bringing innovation to government organizations and beyond? Apply to join our team.
As a senior software developer on our team, you will apply software research and leading-edge technologies to important and challenging government problems and needs.
BS in Computer Science or related discipline with 10 years of applicable experience, or a MS in CS or a related discipline with 8 years of experience, or a PhD in CS or a related discipline with 5 years of applicable experience.
Flexible to travel to other SEI offices in Pittsburgh and Washington, DC, sponsor sites, conferences, and offsite meetings on occasion. Moderate (25%) travel outside of your home location.
You will be subject to a background investigation and must be eligible to obtain and maintain a Department of Defense security clearance.
Programming: You will work with modern languages such as Python, C++11, Scala, Rust, and Go; large-scale data frameworks such as Spark and Hadoop; machine learning frameworks such as TensorFlow and PyTorch; and front-end frameworks such as React and Angular.
