Software Developer, DSP (C, C++, Python) - Top Secret

Stanleyreid
Direct Support Professional Job in Fairfax, VA
Opens new tab
Our client is the sole prime on a multi-decade program that works on exciting and challenging Signal Processing problems that are very important to Intelligence Community missions. You'll find work that involves detection and processing of LTE / 4G / 5G signals, modulation / demodulation algorithms, quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM), low signal-to-noise situations, estimation problems, phase shifts, time synchronization algorithms, frequency and phase corrections, forward error correcting, machine learning, and more. The program is entirely software focused - no hardware / FPGA work. This program has continual needs for DSP / SIGINT Engineers, Distributed Software Engineers, and Cloud / DevOps Engineers. DSP / SIGINT Engineers do everything from algorithm design to production implementation: design modulation / demodulation and other DSP algorithms, create proofs-of-concept in Matlab, implement algorithms in code (typically C++, C, or Python), get that code running correctly a single server, and then get that code running correctly on large clusters (100+ servers). Software Engineers here do everything listed above, except for algorithm design and Matlab proofs-of-concept, plus they write code for data acquisition / processing / analysis (C++, Python, Java, etc.). Cloud / DevOps Engineers work with the rest of the team to provide environments to support CI/CD processes using cloud-native technologies (Docker, Kubernetes, microservices, etc.) Salaries are on-par with the market, but the total compensation is out of this world: in addition to a massive 401(k) contribution, they provide a large fund that can be used for various benefits with the remainder taken as additional cash. There are work locations for this team in Virginia, Colorado, New Mexico, Georgia, and OCONUS. Most roles can accept someone with a TS clearance (TS/SCI preferred), while some require a CI or FS Poly.

5 Common Career Paths For a Direct Support Professional

Certified Nursing Assistant

A certified nursing assistant generally assists patients in their healthcare needs and medical procedures. They support patients in their daily activities by monitoring patients' temperature and food intake, ensuring the cleanliness of the patient's room, and keeping documentation of patients' conditions for reference of nurses and doctors. A certified nursing assistant should also communicate with patients' families and provide updates as often as needed. It is also important that a nursing assistant is patient and compassionate enough to attend to direct patient needs, which could get demanding or challenging at times.

Licensed Practical Nurse

Licensed practical nurses are considered leading front liners in the clinic or hospital setting. They assist nurses and doctors in conducting various activities related to sick or injured patients. Licensed practical nurses are primarily expected to provide routine care for patients and assist registered nurses in creating care plans. They maintain and update medical records, prepare patients for medical examinations, help patients dress, bath, or eat, take vital signs, administer and monitor medicine intake, monitor patients and update nurses and doctors on patient status, and assist during medical examinations.

Program Coordinator

Program coordinators are mid-level employees who are assigned to work on a program of a specific department. They handle the communications between their department and any other department that they may need to collaborate with. They coordinate action plans and activities to ensure that the departments are aligned. They are present during the planning stage for the program so that they will be familiar with action items. They are directly involved in the implementation by liaising with the involved departments. Program coordinators should have good communication skills, interpersonal skills, and organization skills.

Counselor

Often, counselors are known to be the go-to person in times we are in need of emotional and psychological support. They help people to manage and overcome the issues which affect their mental health and well-being. Counselors face different kind of situations which may involve trauma, addiction, disabilities, abuse, suicide, anger management, career, and even personal relationships. They provide care, counseling, rehabilitation, and support services. Every counseling requires collaborative effort both from the counselor and client to become effective.

Consultant

Consultants are individuals who were tapped by a company or an organization to work on a specific activity, depending on their field of expertise. They act as guides for the organization in undertaking projects that are related to their field. Consultants would usually assist organizations in planning, often giving advice when the need arises. They would, at times, take the lead in activities that involve data gathering and interpretation of data gathering results so that they can provide solid recommendations on actions that the organization may undertake. They may also guide the organization in implementing any changes brought about by their consultancy and in evaluating the effectiveness of the changes.
