Today, Electronic Warfare (EW) is a growing enterprise - protecting the warfighter and our national security against ever-adapting threats. Leidos currently has an opening for a Junior Signal Processing Engineer to support EW programs in San Diego, CA.
As part of our team, you will focus on improving the robustness and efficacy of sensors and signals in complicated environments. More broadly, you will advance the state of the art in research and advanced applications to support ongoing and future EW programs. You'll simultaneously get to work alongside scientists and experts in these fields to help grow your own knowledge and career.
Taking direction from your Team or Task Lead, while working in small groups or individually, you will:
Develop, model, and test algorithms in Matlab, Simulink, or C++
Analyze results from simulation or real data to identify root causes and trends
Plan and perform analytical and engineering research, design development, participate in testing and other technical assignments
Bachelors of Science in Electrical Engineering, Physics, Computer Science, Mathematics or related field 2+ years' experience
Minimum active SECRET clearance, with ability to obtain TS/SCI
Experience with tools such as MATLAB, Linux, Mathematica, Python, Simulink - and languages such as C/C++, Java etc.
Working knowledge of scientific programming and algorithm development
