MIT Lincoln Laboratory Data Engineer in Lexington, Massachusetts

Requisition ID: [[id]]

There are currently more than 20,000 objects in Earth's orbit. Some of these objects are operational satellites performing critical civil, scientific, and military missions. Tracking, monitoring, controlling and defending these satellites is of key national interest. The Information Integration and Decision Support Group develops the mission critical decision support tools needed to perform key functions such as rapid event detection and dynamic scheduling of assets in order to develop courses of action for the Space Operator. The decision support tools are driven by integrating information from various sensors, sources, and systems.

The focal point of the group's activities resides in its Lexington BMC3 Testbed (LC3T) facility .It provides a real-time framework environment to ensure interoperability of several service-oriented-architecture (SOA) systems, to evaluate and operationalize the contributions of new sensors and sources, and to develop and assess the performance of new decision support algorithms using live data.

We are seeking a data engineer to help us build the next generation automated decision support tools in the LC3T facility. These tools will help the space operator understand the behavior of objects in space and the intent of this behavior. This engineer will be working with a team to create the end to end design, as well as development and deployment of new capability. Tools developed in the LC3T are commonly used in space operations today.

Qualifications: BS in Electrical Engineering, Physics, Applied Mathematics or similar technical field with 0 - 3 years is required. Experience with Java, SQL and NoSQL databases, data analytics (such as pattern recognition & change detection) is highly desired.

Position will require candidate to acquire and maintain a Secret clearance.
