Job Description

Senior Software Engineer

What We Do

Integer Technologies is an applied research and product development company founded by scientists and engineers with a passion for technology and national security. We perform R&D on next-generation systems and technologies for the Department of Defense and other U.S. Government agencies. We are hardware and software developers with experience turning research into impactful products for military and commercial applications. Our core portfolio of research includes projects in power & energy systems, unmanned systems (with an emphasis on maritime systems), digital engineering, and advanced manufacturing. We are a startup founded for the purpose of putting research into action. Our mission is to create a safer world by translating scientific discoveries into reliable products that address urgent national security needs… at the speed of relevance. 


Our unmanned systems portfolio includes work on critical enabling technologies for more reliable, more intelligent, and longer-duration unmanned systems. We are actively developing a new perception system that automatically detects objects on and just below the surface of the water, day or night, and in most weather conditions, by fusing sensor data from multi-spectral cameras and radar using reliable and validated machine learning algorithms. This perception system will be a key enabler for autonomous ships to navigate safely without human intervention. Our power & energy systems portfolio includes work supporting the DoD’s the electrification of platforms beginning with Navy ships. Applications include hybrid and electric propulsion systems, autonomous controls, and integration with mission systems to achieve ultra-fast power system response.

About the Role

The Senior Software Engineering role requires passion and drive to learn about influences on other fields of engineering and their impacts on software design.  This role requires enough prior experience and/or professional education to mentor other engineers in their career development.


Many of our projects and products involve software systems deployed on physical systems and vehicles that must operate in harsh environments. These software systems must interface with a range of systems, including sensors, TCP/IP, Data distribution systems (DDS), as well as Graphic User interfaces (GUI) on both web and desktop applications. Therefore, we are particularly interested in candidates with a diverse set of experiences in the development of full stack software systems for robotics, automotive, manufacturing, oil & gas, industrial internet of things, defense, and/or aerospace applications.

Integer is a science and technology research and development organization. As such, much of our work entails developing solutions for complex problems that presently have no known solutions. To achieve internal and customer project goals all candidates must be able to perform research, understand new concepts from other engineering disciplines on advanced and complex topics, and document findings in a way that is easy for non-experts to understand.

Primary Responsibilities 

  • Draw, Articulate, and architect technical solutions to unique problem-sets. 

  • Use prior experience and hands-on software development skills to develop various software-based products for both internal and customer projects. 

  • Mentor software developers on available tool sets and engineering best practices. 

  • Articulate complex software functions, and development requirements to non-software personnel (such as customers, government representatives, project managers, etc.) for the purpose of ensuring project stakeholders understand developed products function.   

  • Take abstract ideas and project statements of work tasking and understand the granular development sub-tasking pre-requisites that must occur for completion of the overall tasks. 

  • Work with project managers and articulate development time estimates. 

  • Ensure project deadlines are met and development priorities of multiple programs are understood to drive the software development team(s) sprint efforts.  

  • Design, document, develop, and integrate software in a wide range of languages. 

  • Participate in peer reviews of developed software. 

  • Participate in software requirements & architecture development efforts. 

  • Participate in collaborative software development efforts in a Linux environment.   

  • Perform research, review technical documentation, and discuss the pros and cons said research, and associated technical documentation. 

Core Requirements

  • Must be a US Citizen with the ability to obtain a US DoD Secret clearance. 

  • Must have excellent written and oral communication skills. 

  • Either 8+ years of relevant experience; Bachelor’s Degree and 6+ years of prior relevant experience; OR Graduate Degree and 4+ years of prior relevant experience in one or more of the following technical areas.

  1. Embedded Software development: Software and/or firmware development using languages such as C, C++, C#, SQL, Python, R, Ruby, Perl, Python, Scala, Go.

  2. Data Engineering and Analytics: Development of neural networks, and deep learning techniques and/or systems using languages such as MATLAB Code, C++, Python, R.

  3. Front-end Software Development: Front-end development using languages, skills, and toolsets such as HTML5, CSS, JavaScript/TypeScript, Angular, Vue, jQuery, and UX/UI design (Understanding of HCI)

  4. Back-end Software Development: Back-end development using languages, skills, and toolsets such as Java, C, C++, C#, SQL, Ruby, Perl, PHP, Python, Scala, and Go.

  • Working knowledge using Git for version control. 

  • Experience working within collaborative software development efforts in a Linux environment. 

  • Working knowledge of linear algebra. 

  • Ability to travel up to approximately 10% of time. 

Additional Desired Qualifications

  • Working knowledge of Bayesian statistics. 

  • Experience leading small software development teams and/or efforts. 

  • Experience with Docker.

  • Experience with ROS (Robot Operating System). 

  • Experience using SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition). 

  • Experience using Angular. 

  • Experience with network configurations, protocols, certificates, and firewalls.
