Job Opportunities

Senior System Engineer – Integrated System Architecture

Location: Annapolis Junction, Maryland
Requisition Number: 337
# of Openings: 1




System Engineer

Imagine a system of distributed world-wide computing resources.  Some information is time sensitive.  Other information is not.  Some of these resources provide high priority information that affect national security.  Others provide fragments of information that need to be pieced together by multiple systems to provide the same or greater value.  How do you mitigate risk when one or more high priority resources go down?  How do you optimize computing resources to get maximum throughput on known high priority resources?  How do you determine which computing resources provide valuable fragments to solve some of the more difficult problems?  How is that information related?  If given enough information, can these computing resources learn how to self-optimize?  If so, how can self-optimization be accomplished without further draining the available resources?  If these questions interest you, then you may be interested in a career at PROTEUS in system monitoring and advanced command and control.   These are not simple problems; they require the best and brightest engineers to solve.
