    Job Description

    TS/SCI w/ polygraph required

    The Fourth Dimension Engineering team of Polaris Alpha provides complete electronic product design and development services. Our engineering design capabilities span multiple engineering disciplines and employ a flexible, mission-centric product development process. We consistently succeed on the most challenging and time-critical problems.

    The Computer Scientist shall have an expertise and knowledge and be able to apply this knowledge in the design, development, test and documentation of software code. The Computer Scientist shall apply sound planning, analysis and programming and coding practices.

    We are looking for a self-motivated individual who can operate in a less structured, free thinking environment, but who can also contribute to and support overall team success.

    Working at a small company means you are never far from the action. We don’t have layers of management to battle. Instead, we pride ourselves on our culture of independence and responsibility where you have the freedom to make the decisions required for mission success.

    Let’s get philosophical.

    The growth and progress of any organization like ours depends on its employees – people with initiative, creativity, and enthusiasm providing exceptional service with integrity and professionalism. We maintain high standards of honesty, hard work, and a consistent focus on our customer’s needs. In the workplace, we promote an atmosphere of open communication and collaboration among all our employees in which they can learn and grow. Our employees work together for our common success to help us maintain our leadership position in a highly competitive industry. We lead where others only follow.
