Job Description:

Are you interested in improving and shaping the transportation industry in a group of intelligent and motivated individuals? This Leidos team operates FHWA's Saxton Transportation Operations Laboratory (STOL), a USDOT research lab focused on the improvement of transportation operations, safety, mobility, and environmental impacts. STOL provides a variety of services to support the advancement and deployment of emerging technologies, including vehicle automation and communication. To support these goals, Leidos is hiring a Software Engineer in McLean, Virginia, as part of a team of researchers in developing the latest automated vehicle technology as a key part of the Leidos team supporting the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA's) cutting-edge research at Turner Fairbank Highway Research Center (TFHRC). This work involves development and maintenance of various back end systems for such things as roadside data collection and storage, web mapping tools, communications and data transfer, and data analysis, as well as work on vehicle on-board software for automation and connectivity. This person will play a significant role in implementing, adopting and evaluating technologies developed both in-house and by others. Systems of interest relate to the following:

Vehicle-to-anything (V2X) communication hardware, software and standards

Vehicle automation and cooperation

Traffic and driving simulations

Traffic operations

Intelligent transportation systems.

The software engineer will be part of a team of developers writing and extending a variety of applications and components in support of transportation research, including connected vehicles and human factors, in McLean, VA. We are part of a larger research team in a relaxed, laboratory environment that pushes the boundaries of connected and autonomous vehicle technology for the FHWA for purposes of demonstrating capabilities associated with vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communication that will support the larger Intelligent Transportation System initiatives. We also study human factors, such as a driver's ability to recognize and react to various situations, including interaction with automated vehicles. Software assignments may include rendering of visual scenes; control of automated vehicles; communications with network or hardware devices including radios; guidance algorithms; data collection, display, storage and retrieval, and data analysis; web applications for data entry, status reporting or control; data parsing and composition; database operations and data warehousing; and public web site operations.

The successful candidate will design, develop and test software, primarily in C++ in a Linux environment, but may also require C, Java, Python C#, SQL, Javascript, HTML and CSS, and may also work in Windows. Software designs are documented with UML. Automated unit tests are routinely developed and maintained as the software evolves. Where necessary, user documentation is generated or updated to reflect changes in the software functionality. All documentation, code and unit tests are routinely subjected to peer review. Depending on the software application, system tests may involve driving passenger cars or acting as a safety driver to ensure that an automated vehicle performs safely. Occasional interaction with on-site customer representatives will be part of the job. As part of a close team, the engineer will need to:
  • Be a good team player and be able to give and take critical feedback on work products
  • Communicate clearly in English, both orally and in writing
  • Be prompt, schedule-conscious, and able to focus on the work at hand
  • Be coachable and open to self-discovery and professional improvement
  • Be quality-conscious and carry a sense of pride in their work
