The Boeing Company is seeking an early-career software developer to join the F-22 Mission Systems team. This organization designs, develops, and demonstrates avionics solutions for the F-22 Raptor, the premier 5th gen air superiority fighter flown only by the United States Air Force (USAF). Your role will require you to work as a member of a cross-functional agile team to integrate cutting edge technologies to maintain the Raptor’s dominance over the battlefield for many decades to come.

There are currently opportunities across Mission Systems which include but are not limited to: supporting software development on cross-functional teams which are tasked with integrating/implementing solutions onto the F-22 platform, developing high fidelity simulation and environment software and tool sets to enable rapid deployment of high quality software solutions for the war-fighter, and many others.

Additionally, under the Raptor Agile Capability Release (RACR) contract, the F-22 is transforming its contracting and development approach to leverage software development tools, processes, and best practices used by West Coast/Silicon Valley software firms like Amazon, Apple, Google, and Facebook. Some of these include Amazon Web Services, Continuous Integration/Continuous Development, and much more. This transformation creates growth and leadership opportunities. Interested applicants should search the internet for “Raptor Agile Capability Release” to learn more about this transformation.
