Special Projects Dallas requires a software engineer to support the Advance Airborne Sensor (AAS) program. Boeing is responsible for developing and maintaining the software used on the P-8A to provide operator displays and sensor control. Our software provides the capabilities for the crew to do mission planning, execute the mission, monitor situational awareness displays, manage display of contacts, tracks, and imagery, control our primary sensor, monitor system status, send data over data links (Link-16 and Common Data Link), and perform post mission analysis and replay. We also develop and maintain simulation software used for lab testing and training. The software consists primarily of JAVA with some C++ and C and is developed using Object Oriented methodology. Several COTS software products are also integrated with our developed software. Software engineers participate in the entire software life cycle from requirements analysis through system level testing.
[ – ] Communication
Consistently and proactively clarifies purpose and importance; stresses major points; follows a logical sequence. Guiders others in keeping their audience thoroughly engaged through use of techniques such as analogies, illustrations, humor, an appealing style, body language, and voice inflection. Frames highly complex and or advanced information in line with audience experience, background, and expectations; uses terms, examples, and analogies that are meaningful to the audience. Regularly seeks input from audience; checks understanding; presents message in different ways to enhance understanding. Uses syntax, pace, volume, diction, and mechanics appropriate to the media being used. Attends to both direct and indirect messages from others; correctly interprets messages and responds appropriately. Mentors and advises fellow project leads and other internal employees on effective communication techniques.
[ – ] Decision Making
Consistently and proactively recognizes a wide range of highly advanced or unusually complex issues, problems, or opportunities across the organization; determines whether action is needed. Adeptly identifies the need for and collects information to better understand issues, problems, and opportunities; has advanced knowledge in integrating unusually complex information from a variety of sources; detects unusually complex trends, associations, and cause-effect relationships. Guides others in creating relevant options for addressing problems/opportunities and achieving desired outcomes; can be relied upon to formulate clear decision criteria; evaluates options by considering implications and consequences; chooses an effective option; implements decisions reliably and initiates action within a reasonable time; includes team leaders, managers and internal employees in the decision-making process as warranted to obtain good information, make the most appropriate decisions, and ensure buy-in and understanding of the resulting decisions.
[ – ] Systems Thinking
Consistently and proactively evaluates job tasks and processes on how well they help meet program/project objective(s); identifies non-value-adding components and barriers. Expertly formulates complex change strategies; frequently seeks input from others to evaluate options for change and encourage buy-in. Makes appropriate changes to job/role structures and processes by assigning accountability appropriately, communicating effectively, focusing on new skill development, and integrating with related systems or processes. Uses accurate measurement systems to monitor the implementation.
[ – ] Analytical Skills
Skill and ability to: collect, organize, synthesize, and analyze data; summarize findings; develop conclusions and recommendations from appropriate data sources at the business unit level.
[ – ] Real-time S/W Domain Knowledge
Advanced, expert knowledge of domains, characteristics, constraints and products that require real-time software and influence architecture, requirements, interfaces, designs, and integration/test approaches. Real-time domain examples include control systems, human interfaces and signal processing. Examples of characteristics and constraints that impact real-time software include hardware/software timing, sizing, bandwidth, optimization and synchronization. Examples of products include aircraft, missiles, airborne/shipboard/space systems/ground-based operational systems and real-time support systems such as simulators and training systems.
Degree and typical experience in engineering classification: Bachelor’s 14 or more years’ experience, Master’s with 12 or more years’ experience or PhD with 9 or more years’ experience. Bachelor, Master or Doctorate of Science degree from an accredited course of study, in engineering, computer science, mathematics, physics or chemistry. ABET is the preferred, although not required, accreditation standard.

Position requires a current SSBI/Top Secret clearance – US Citizenship Required or equivalent (Refer to Security Clearance Definitions link above). Applicants MUST include their security clearance level, investigation type and investigation date clearly on their resume. Security Clearance/Special Program Access or other Government Access Requirements is mandatory. Much of the work at The Boeing Company is of a classified nature and many positions require a security clearance, the granting of which is at the discretion of government authorities. A final clearance is mandatory for this position prior to transferring. If your final Security Clearance/Special Program Access or other Government Access Requirement is not granted, this offer will be withdrawn. Once your clearances are granted, if they are not maintained, the result may be reassignment, reclassification, or termination of employment. The successful candidate will have experience with the entire software development lifecycle and application software.
