We are GDIT. The people supporting some of the most complex government, defense, and intelligence projects across the country. We deliver. Bringing the expertise needed to understand and advance critical missions.  We transform. Shifting the ways clients invest in, integrate, and innovate technology solutions. We ensure today is safe and tomorrow is smarter. We are there. On the ground, beside our clients, in the lab, and everywhere in between. Offering the technology transformations, strategy, and mission services needed to get the job done.

There is no challenge that we can’t turn into opportunity, and our work depends on a Software Engineer joining our team to support critical Government activities.

At GDIT, people are our differentiator.  As a Software Engineer supporting our mission partner, you will be trusted to provide support to a critical program.  Key responsibilities will include:

  • The On-Site Senior Software Engineer will ensure the proper operation of the Mult-Int Analysis and Archive System (MAAS - FMV) which includes a large number of dependencies on other systems (e.g., video encoders, network infrastructure, database, etc). The candidate will focus on front end development related to customer software solutions on-site at the direction of the government customer and the MAAS development team. The candidate may support backend development and collaboration efforts in addition to front end development efforts.

  • In addition to solving ongoing operational problems, novel software solutions will be greatly valued, especially using the latest accepted software technologies.
