Protocol Stack Software Engineer

Lockheed Martin invites you to step up to one of today's most daunting challenges: the use of advanced electronics to undermine our way of life. As a cybersecurity professional at Lockheed Martin, you'll protect the networks that our citizens and the world depend upon each minute: Financial assets. Healthcare information. Critical infrastructure. Hazardous materials. The uninterrupted flow of energy that keeps modern life moving. Here, you'll work with cybersecurity experts on the forefront of threat protection and proactive prevention. In this fast-paced, real-world environment, you'll draw on all of your education and experience as well as the resources of Lockheed Martin to keep the threats at bay.

This position is for a protocol stack software developer. This includes the responsibility for design, development, integration, and testing of LTE protocol stack software. Develop LTE protocol functionality impacting all layers of the protocol stack including PHY (physical), MAC (medium access control), RLC (radio link control), PDCP (packet data convergence control), Control Plane NAS (non-access stratum) and RRC (radio resource control), and User Plane IP and TCP/UDP. Coding is primarily in C and C++. Initial development of protocol in a Linux environment with support for porting to embedded real time operating system and gateware environment. The candidate is expected to provide technical leadership and be self directed.

Additional tasks include:

* Analyze protocol requirements and architect and implement software designs to meet them.
* Maintenance and bug fixing of existing protocol stack software in support of internal hardware in the loop verification testing and customer implementation.
* Provide support for implementation in embedded real time operating system and gateware environment.
* Work with verification engineers and processing platform engineers to develop interface between hardware and software along with operational performance requirements for system implementation.

This project consists of an agile cross functional team of software and system engineers that envisions, designs, implements, and verifies the performance of unique functionality for wireless telecommunications protocols including 4G LTE, and IP packet switching technologies. Implement features to enhance protocol communication performance, minimize resource utilization, and harden the protocol to mitigate security vulnerabilities.

Applicants selected will be subject to a government security investigation and must meet eligibility requirements for access to classified information.
