Job Description

Kratos is a fast paced, entrepreneurial environment that is team oriented and relationship driven to foster innovation and creativity. Our motto, "From Strength to Success," reflects our commitment to continually leveraging our technical and intellectual strengths for the ultimate success of our customers. The Federal Solutions Group is a leader in satellite command and control solutions provider focused on DoD, Civil (NOAA/NASA), and National customers. We are an agile and innovative solutions provider in that we use company created products, 3rd party products, and design and develop new tools and applications to provide an integrated end-to-end system to solve the mission’s unique requirements.


The qualified candidate will primarily work with a small team responsible for systems engineering, development, integration, and testing of an innovative, new satellite ground systems program that combines COTS products, GOTS elements, and newly developed applications on a customer IaaS. There will be a wide range of hands-on tasks including software installation, system administration, system configuration, testing, troubleshooting, and analysis.  The candidate will also work with the end customer directly in order to understand needs and grow the system.

The qualified candidate must be motivated and have a passion for examining new and interesting concepts with an eye towards defining innovative, cost effective, and mission enhancing systems.  Experience with complex ground systems that support space system operations is encouraged, though a foundational knowledge in system engineering, integration, and system administration is a good starting point. Expertise in US Government systems and processes is certainly a plus, as is a background in software development.
