Dynetics, a growing thriving employee-owned company, is seeking a talented, self-disciplined Software Engineer to join a motivated multi-discipline engineering team developing breakthrough technologies for unmanned aviation systems. With offices across the United States engaging in the defense, space, cyber and commercial fields, Dynetics provides responsive, cost effective engineering, scientific and IT solutions. Dynetics is well known for our people-oriented culture, positive work environment, technical excellence, and resilient business ethics.

This position’s responsibilities include:

  • Software development of new avionics software for novel aviation systems: architectural and interface design, implementation, unit testing, code reviews
  • Open, direct communication with customers, stakeholders, and team members to help refine software component requirements and designs
  • Opportunities for direct contributions to safety, quality, design, and on-schedule implementation
  • Airborne product development, ground and flight testing, and integration of software efforts into the airworthy, first-of-its-kind production system

Projects involve a variety of airborne flight software, command and communications software, control station software, and human-machine interfaces. This position also involves pre-flight planning applications and design of interfaces and data transfer objects (DTOs).

Developed avionics software primarily includes object-oriented C++, XML, threads, sockets, inter-process communications, design patterns, open architectural design, automated unit test frameworks, static and dynamic code analysis, and a variety of Linux and Windows development tools. Additional software development includes Windows applications using .Net, C#, XML, and object-oriented methodologies. Software is developed in an innovative, technology-driven self-disciplined team environment using the AgileScrum framework within a tailored CMMI-based software process.
