Northrop Grumman is seeking an experienced Python Developer with an active clearance to support our Aurora, CO location.

Our growing Aurora, Colorado team is comprised of approximately 700 engineers, developers, technical and business professionals. It is part of Northrop Grumman Mission Systems data systems operations. The facility is situated across from Buckley Air Force Base which is home to the 460th Space Wing. The site also sits within a 2 hour drive to Rocky Mountain National Park, as well as several world-class ski resorts perfect for our employees who take advantage of Northrop’s flexible work arrangements.

At Northrop Grumman Python developers work on unique operationally deployed systems to both develop new capabilities and maintain operational subsystems. We are seeking developers who want to work on a small team in an agile environment to design, develop, document, and debug software products that support national security needs. Because communication is so important for team success, candidates must have strong written and verbal communication skills.

Our software is currently a whimsical hodge podge of tightly coupled and home brewed java packages, most of which were developed 10 years ago. We want to add Python developers to the team who can work with our current Java developers to redisgn the system so that it can be written using Python and newer open source packages for improved performance, user friendliness, and maintainability. Familiarity with developing web applications is a plus (Django, JavaScript, Angular, JQuery, etc.). This is an excellent opportunity to be on the ground floor of a new sybsystem.
