The LEAP project is part of Sandia's Global Security portfolio of work. Sandia’s programs in Global Security range from nonproliferation and global threat reduction to homeland defense and critical asset protection. Our mission is to use science and technology, innovative research, and global engagement to counter threats, reduce dangers, and respond to disasters. We extend Sandia’s 60-year heritage in mission expertise for advanced remote sensing systems to monitor worldwide activities of consequence to national security.
On any given day, you will be called upon to:* Use Java and JavaFX to add new capabilities or to enhance existing features in ground station applications. Most of these features enhance situational awareness to allow for informed decision making. * Collaborate in an innovating environment to design and develop advanced data processing software for complex, real-time decision support systems.* Work on front-end as well as back-end code.* If there is interest and available time, take on a Computer Science Research Institute research project.
This posting will be open for application submissions for a minimum of seven (7) calendar days, including the ‘posting date’. Sandia reserves the right to extend the posting date at any time.
NNSA Requirements for MedPEDs:
If you have a Medical Portable Electronic Device (MedPED), such as a pacemaker, defibrillator, drug-releasing pump, hearing aids, or diagnostic equipment and other equipment for measuring, monitoring, and recording body functions such as heartbeat and brain waves, if employed by Sandia National Laboratories you may be required to comply with NNSA security requirements for MedPEDs.
If you have a MedPED and you are selected for an on-site interview at Sandia National Laboratories, there may be additional steps necessary to ensure compliance with NNSA security requirements prior to the interview date.
