The Virtual Technologies and Engineering department has an opportunity for a Computer Science Professional to serve as a Digital Engineering lead to support several strategic and tactical digital engineering efforts within Center 2400. We are looking for a highly motivated engineer to help lead and define the digital engineering strategy effort. As part of this effort you will be leading a team of software developers, architects and engineers to support the creation of a digital ecosystem to integrate various data tools into a cohesive tool to support the ND mission. You will work closely with various technical teams across the labs that are helping structure the digital engineering landscape of the future.

On any given day, you may be called on to:

+ Provide programmatic leadership and vision for digital engineering efforts in the group
+ Pitch concepts to acquire support through championship and funding
+ Lead a software development team with Agile practices to create digital solutions to meet customer needs
+ Interface and partner with organizations that are pursuing digital engineering efforts across the labs, including model-based systems engineering (MBSE), computational simulation (ModSim WS&T), and digital enterprise
+ Establish strong relationships with key stakeholders including ND Systems, and ND Component Engineering teams to capture, define, and refine the implementation of a digital engineering workflow into existing systems engineering activities

Required:

+ Master's degree in Computer Science or Software Engineering plus 2 years of relevant experience or Master in a STEM discipline with 3 years of software development, software engineering or computer science
+ Experience with NW product realization practices and procedures
+ Experience with model-based approaches to engineering, including modeling and simulation, model-based design, or model-based systems engineering
+ Active US DOE Q-level security clearance

Desired:

+ Strong teamwork and interpersonal skills, including demonstrated abilities in effective leadership, negotiation, delegation, and conflict resolution in diverse team environments
+ Familiarity with Agile Software Development / Software Architecture / Computer Science degree strongly preferred

Department Description:

The Virtual Technologies and Engineering department is responsible for the development and implementation of various elements of the Digital Engineering effort supporting our Nuclear Deterrent. The organization leads the development of a Digital Twin framework which integrates other model-based efforts into a cohesive and structured platform to support weapon system lifecycle decisions from concept through surveillance. The team also leads the Digital Engineering Strategy which helps integrate digital solutions that enable accelerated product development. This includes development of SOLSTICE, a platform for linked surrogate multi-physics models that enable accelerated design and virtual build-test cycles, and leading the integration of modeling, simulation and augmented/virtual reality tools into the nuclear weapon design, qualification, and surveillance mission spaces. Finally, the department oversees two strategic partnership programs with the Department of Defense, the Joint Munitions Program (JMP) and the Joint Fuze Technology Program (JFTP), which mature technology with mutual benefit to the DOE and DoD weapon missions.

Security Clearance:

Position requires a Department of Energy (DOE) Q security clearance to start, or equivalent active security clearance with another U.S. government agency (e.g., DOD). Sandia is required by DOE directive to conduct a pre-employment drug test and background review that includes checks of personal references, credit, law enforcement records, and employment/education verifications. Applicants for employment need to be able to maintain a DOE Q-level security clearance, which requires U.S. citizenship. If you hold more than one citizenship (i.e., of the U.S. and another country), your ability to obtain a security clearance may be impacted.

Applicants offered employment with Sandia are subject to a federal background investigation to meet the requirements for access to classified information or matter if the duties of the position require a DOE security clearance. Substance abuse or illegal drug use, falsification of information, criminal activity, serious misconduct or other indicators of untrustworthiness can cause a clearance to be denied or terminated by DOE, resulting in the inability to perform the duties assigned and subsequent termination of employment.
