Bring your talent and skills to Raytheon Technologies Kessel Run Software Engineering Team! Kessel Run is one of the very few software development organizations with the vision to “Deliver combat capability that can sense and respond to conflict in any domain, anytime, anywhere.” It will realize this vision by fulfilling its mission to continuously deliver war-winning software that warfighters love. We are seeking Software Engineers to support the Kessel Run vision.

The Kessel Run Enterprise Software Developers Services contract is pursuing a modernization effort which seeks to leverage the advantages of Cloud computing, Platform as a Service (PaaS), Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), and adoption of a continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) pipeline in order to get capability out to the field more quickly. This process will meet all regulatory testing and cybersecurity requirements in order to establish a lean, user-centered approach that will ultimately redefine how programs within the Kessel Run portfolio deliver capability to the Air Force warfighter.

This effort has a strong focus on engagement with the end-user community to ensure we are rapidly meeting their highest priority needs. We are seeking Software Engineers for the Kessel Run Enterprise Software Developers Services contract in order to transform legacy applications and new requirements as identified by the Government into cloud-native applications that will reside on a Platform as a Service (PaaS).

Kessel Run development processes are centered on Test Driven Development (TDD) and Pair Programming with pairing performed 8 hours per day/5days a week.
