Full-Time Software Engineer

Kessel Run – Posted by Kessel Run Boston, Massachusetts, United States

Job Description

Our Software Engineers are breaking new ground within the Air Force, changing the way the Department of Defense builds software. We build, measure, and learn; creating war-winning software iteratively. No longer are we building off of multi-year plans with stacks of requirements.

Engineers at Kessel Run balance user needs, organizational outcomes, and technical feasibility in order to build value quickly while still considering the big picture. Our teams are flat and balanced, with Developers, Designers, and Product Managers working in concert, empowered to build the software we know our warfighters need.

You MUST be a U.S. citizen to apply and must be eligible to obtain a U.S. Security Clearance (see eligibility requirements here).

Day In The Life

A typical day as a Kessel Run Software Engineer starts with your caffeinated beverage of choice and a team stand-up to align on goals for the day. As an engineer you will pair program regularly and use Test-Driven Development to implement user stories from the product’s backlog.

You will help Product Managers write stories by providing input on technical complexity and feasibility. You will be empowered to learn continuously. You will work closely with your PM and Designer in a balanced team to define product direction. You will help enable junior engineers to grow. You will provide input on architecture decisions and help ensure code quality.

Who you are

  • You are proficient writing Java or Kotlin, and Javascript
  • You are proficient with frontend and backend development
  • You are familiar with the Spring and/or React.js frameworks
  • You enjoy paired programming and working on a balanced team
  • You have experience with TDD, continuous delivery, and automated testing
  • You keep up with best practices and spread that knowledge to others
  • You are comfortable working in a UNIX terminal
  • You have experience deploying applications in a containerized environment
  • You are experienced with SQL databases
  • You can develop empathy with your users
  • You are a U.S. citizen and are eligible to obtain a U.S. Security Clearance (see eligibility requirements here)

We hire at the GS-13 level equivalent. This means you can expect a salary of $101,585 to $132,064 (depending on experience) for a Boston-based position (pay will be adjusted by location), as well as paid time off, health, and retirement benefits. There are advancement opportunities to promote to senior levels after hiring.

We understand that there is no such thing as the perfect candidate for any job and we believe in empowering people to learn and grow throughout their careers. We encourage any applicant who is interested in making an impact in the Department of Defense to apply to this position regardless of background and qualifications.
