Does a career focused on changing the world's energy future intrigue you? If so, we might have just the opportunity you're looking for!
Idaho National Laboratory's (INL) Engineering group is seeking forward-thinking professionals interested in exploring a career as a TREAT Computer Software Engineer.
Our team works a remote 4x10 schedule located at our Materials and Fuels Complex with every Friday off!
Responsibilities Include:
As a Computer and Software Engineer working in the Instrumentation and Controls section of the TREAT Engineering department, you will be responsible for designing, developing, reviewing, analyzing, testing, and maintaining the computer and software systems used by the Transient Reactor Test Facility in support of its mission to Change the World's Energy Future.
This position primarily involves software development; however, successful candidates are expected to be knowledgeable of the underlying hardware architectures on which the software systems will run and be capable of performing technical assessments of hardware capabilities, limitations, and trade-offs as they relate to assigned tasks.
Design work may range from identifying an optimal fix for minor anomalies and the methods of implementation for new features in existing codebases to the re-writing of existing software applications in new languages or architectures to the clean-sheet design of large, complex, and interconnected networked systems. Design will include the creation of formal documentation and reports that may be reviewed and used by technical and non-technical audiences.
Development will include modifying existing software code or writing new code and associated documentation while aligning with internal programming practices and quality assurance standards, including standards for nuclear safety software as appropriate to the project.
Reviews and analysis will include assessments of source code (which may or may not include comments) and system design documentation, reports from users, and other technical artifacts to create reports and present to other staff and management assessments of code quality, the probable origin and implications of defects and anomalies, and recommendations for improvements and enhancements.
Testing will include the design of test procedures, review and execution of test procedures written by others, and the creation and monitoring of automated test suites that are performed as part of routine software development activities.
Maintenance will include all of the above tasks, plus support for the installation, commissioning, troubleshooting, and ongoing assessment of computer and software systems within your area of responsibility.
Minimum Requirements:
  • Baccalaureate in Computer Science or related technical field and 5-8 years of relevant experience, or Master's Degree and 2-6 years of relevant experience
  • This position requires the ability to obtain and maintain a Department of Energy "L" clearance, which requires US Citizenship
Preferred Requirements:
  • Previous professional experience developing Hard Real-Time software applications for scientific, technical, or industrial applications
  • Professional experience with National Instruments LabVIEW or other graphical programming languages (e.g., IEC 61131-3 Ladder Logic and Sequential Function Chart)
  • Proficiency with writing and interpreting textual programming languages (e.g., C++, FORTRAN)
  • Ability to interpret x86 Assembly Language
  • Demonstrated experience developing software to meet customer requirements both as part of a team and independently
  • Proficiency with source code management tools, such as Git or Subversion
Job Information:
  • Salary Grade: 210/220
  • Chosen applicants are required to show a demonstrated commitment to valuing diversity and contributing to an inclusive working environment.
