Description

The Materials and Manufacturing Office (MMO) at the Applied Research Laboratory (ARL) at The Pennsylvania State University is looking for front-end Software Engineers/User Interface Designers to perform research and development for the Department of Defense (DoD). We are not looking for someone who only wants to maintain legacy code or perform monotonous programming tasks; we want self-motivated individuals who want to use creativity to solve difficult problems in a dynamic environment where techniques, technologies, and requirements are not constant and where you will work as part of a team, but will have ownership of key parts of the software. This job will be filled as a level 2, or level 3, depending upon the successful candidate's competencies, education, and experience. Typically requires a Bachelor's degree or higher in an Engineering or Science discipline or higher plus two years of related experience, or an equivalent combination of education and experience for a level 2. Additional experience and/or education and competencies are required for higher level jobs. A Bachelor’s or Master's degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or Information Science and Technology is desired. Other preferred experience areas include: Javascript; VUE.js; Typescript; webpack; SASS; and web sockets. A strong background in user interface design, user experience design, collection of user requirements, and current web technologies is required. You must be a self-starter who is creative and possesses the ability to work independently as well as collaboratively in a team environment. Candidates selected will be subject to a government security investigation. You must be a U.S. citizen to apply. Employment with the Applied Research Laboratory will require successful completion of a pre-employment drug screen. These are one-year, fixed-term renewable appointments.
