JOB DESCRIPTION


The Intelligent Systems Research and Development Support (ISRDS) contract supports NASA Ames Research Center in developing and infusing advanced information systems technology into NASA missions. Our scientists, engineers and information technologists support research and development of critical enabling intelligent technologies for all of the NASA Mission Directorates. This SGT‐led team has supported technology development for NASA space exploration missions such as LADEE and TESS, supports payload development for the International Space Station, and develops robotics and autonomous operations technologies for lunar and planetary exploration. ISRDS engineers provide support in aeronautics for autonomous operations of unmanned systems and for meeting the challenges of expanding capacity in the aviation industry.

The team you will be applying to join is dedicated to buidiing a test framework for Unmanned Arial Vehicles algorithms that will ensure the safe and efficient opperations of UAVs in the public skies. From geological surveys to package delivery, UAVs are expected to usher in a major logistical revolution; implementing solutions to ensure their safe operations is a vital and exciting opportunity to help build a faster, more efficient future for everyone. UAVs operating in real world conditions will experience difficulties communicating with their control systems from time to time, the systems you will build will enable the creation and thorough testing for properly, swiftly, and safely resolving such situations

 Responsibilities include:

  • Develop RESTful interfaces to existing code, enhance existing code, and interface with RESTful web services.
  • Develop unit tests
  • Collaborate with other team members to help create better solutions

  • Contribute to planning and further development of new features in future


Required Technologies:
Java, Web Services, SOA, JSON, REST, Web Sockets, Testing libraries (e.g. JUnit)

Required Skills:

  • Must be comfortable analyzing existing code and engineering a RESTful web service front-end, as well as consuming RESTful web services
  • IntelliJ or other IDE
  • Source control, documentation, and bug tracking systems such as Atlassian tools.
  • Proficiency in problem solving and debugging Java software
  • Excellent verbal and written communications


Required Traits:

  • Self disciplined
  • Ability to identify and ask questions of subject matter experts
  • Candidate must have the maturity to work with a mix of people -- SGT employees, SGT teammates, NASA Civil Servants, contractors not affiliated with SGT, and subject matter experts (SMEs) on other project teams.
