GDIT is hiring for talented and engaging entry level software engineers to work on the design and development of the Navy and Marine’s primary tactical weather (meteorology and oceanography (METOC)) analysis tool suite: Naval Integrated Tactical Environmental System – Next Generation (NITES-Next). GDIT has been involved in every iteration of NITES since the program inception in the late 1990’s and the prime contractor designing and implementing NITES-Next since 2014. NITES-Next introduced a core Geospatial Information System (GIS) architecture based on Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) standard web services (Web Map Service (WMS), Web Coverage Service (WCS), and Web Feature Service (WFS)) and an entirely web enabled user interface to NITES. In our latest iteration we introduced innovative use of the Electron framework to provide a web application user interface that looks, feels, and performs as high level as if it were a local application. This included instantaneous point data readouts on map displays, that required no server reachback.
The development team includes knowledgeable and experienced engineers in both San Diego, and multiple locations across the US. We stay connected using corporate connectivity software (Skype, Zoom, etc…) This current opening is for work in San Diego, to facilitating support work with our government customer at government facilities, which is expected to be occasional in frequency. Given current challenges from COVID-19, the entire development team works from home, and GDIT will be flexible in allowing this position to start as work from home, but having an office in Mission Valley with available IT staff to get new engineers up and running.
