Job Summary

Amentum is seeking a confident and experienced Senior Software Engineer with strong communication skills to support the review and certification of Link-16 systems in the DOD acquisition cycle. The Department of the Navy (DON) is the lead service for the evaluation and certification of Link 16 equipment, which requires communication and coordination across military services, industry, and other federal agencies. The candidate will work to understand Link 16 systems, the certification process, and how the rapidly changing software can be evaluated in this context.

We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer to review software development plans, software modifications, and software architectures to assess and identify areas of risk associated from software changes to system operation. The evolution and pace of software development has surpassed some of the regulatory requirements that exist to ensure Link-16 systems are not impacting safety systems. The senior software engineer will be working with our customer, other DOD program offices, and industry to provide reviews of software changes and to develop a process to support evaluations of software for safety concerns which aligns with the pace of development.

Here at Amentum, we believe in fostering a sense of belonging. We welcome diversity, encourage growth and development, promote safety first, and believe curiosity is the spark for innovation. We take care of our employees who in turn take care of our customers, driving the success of our business.
