Around here, we define the future.We are a company of innovators, thinkers, creators, explorers, volunteers, and dreamers. But we all share one goal: to improve the world responsibly and safely.KBR is seeking a Senior Software Architecture and Engineer, Edge, and Cloud Computing to join the ISRDS team at NASA Ames.***Must be a US citizen or Permanent Resident***We are at the cusp of an aviation revolution whereby flying cyber-physical systems will disrupt and transform entire industries. The convergence of new technologies including electric propulsion and autonomy together with new business models is generating the potential for a new aviation market known as Urban Air Mobility (UAM). UAM is a safe and efficient system for air passenger and cargo transportation within an urban area, inclusive of small package delivery and other urban Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) services, that supports a mix of onboard/ground-piloted and increasingly autonomous operations.The focus of this project is on disruptive digital information networks connecting passengers, vehicles, services, and data within a common ecosystem. Industry has made significant advances in this direction along the theme of loT or Internet of Things and autonomous cars where ubiquitous sensing, low-cost computation, and mobile devices are connected across a cloud computing continuum.Drive development of the s/w air traffic management system architecture that aims to support vertically isolated, latency sensitive Urban Air Mobility (UAM) applications by providing ubiquitous, scalable, federated, and distributed computing, storage, communication, and data managementProvide subject matter expertise in cloud and edge computing technologies.Explore and develop approaches to migrate application and data along the edge computing network. The approach should also take into consideration predictions of vehicle mobility over a giventime horizon and proximity of data storage to the application throughout the migration process.Explore and develop approaches where vehicles request services that require data from airspace, loT sensors, neighboring vehicles, and smart-city infrastructure to be processed at edge nodes under low-latency conditions.Work with system engineers to develop requirementsDevelop a prototype of the concept using appropriate cloud and simulation technologiesRequire Education, Experience, & Skills:MS in Computer Science or related field10 + years applicable progressively complex software design engineering experience.Significant expertise in cloud and edge computing technologies that have helped fuel the mobile and loT revolution.Expertise is specifically required in systems that address location-a ware, low-latency, geographically distributed computational nodes; scaling and coordination of networks; heterogeneity, interoperability; end-point mobility; interplay between client, edge, and cloud layers; optimal placement of storage and computation along the cloud continuum.Significant experience with Edge/Cloud simulation toolsExperience working on large s/w projects that involve cloud computing technologiesDesired Experience & Skills:Strong s/w development fundamentals such as test-driven and behavior-driven developmentExperience with an object oriented programming language such as JAVA or C#Relational and Non-Relational Database experienceAWS or Azure cloud experienceKnowledge of blockchain technologies
