Enterprise software at ABL is a bit different than at large corporations. Our engineers don't write programs to process payroll; they build tools that control mission critical operations and data flows.
ABL's Full-Stack Software Engineers build applications and tools that synthesize diverse streams of inputs — orbital parameters, flight sensor data, manufacturing workflows, supply chain lead times, and financial projections, to name a few. This software forms a rock-solid technological foundation for world-class launch vehicle engineering and production. In this role, the engineer will facilitate the full end-to-end spectrum of tasks involved in building and launching rockets.
Dig in with design, production, test and launch engineers to understand vehicle processes
Build intuitive web applications that enable supply chain management, robust and streamlined manufacturing processes, mission design and trajectory analysis, launch procedures, and other vital operations
Develop and communicate clear plans and software architectures in the midst of complex, evolving constraints
Own projects from concept through development, initial roll out, and continual improvement
Help discover and articulate the software development roadmap
Assess commercially available software against building applications in-house on a case by case basis
Quickly explore and prototype solutions in a variety of domains
Write high-quality, pragmatic code
Work closely with colleagues across the company to ensure that the tools are meaningfully serving ABL's long-term goals
Bachelor's degree in computer science, mathematics, physics, engineering, or similar
5+ years of experience developing software for the web
Experience across the web stack — databases, infrastructure & tooling, backend servers, and rich client-side applications
Significant experience with developing reliable, maintainable, and performant web application backends
Grounded and pragmatic intuitions for software architecture, API design, and composition of software components
Experience with Flask or Django
Demonstrated experience generating functional user interfaces
Experience with React.js or similar frontend frameworks
Experience with DevOps, infrastructure tooling, and Bash
Experience in the space industry
Hardware experience or willingness to have some hardware involvement. It is important for the Full-Stack Software Engineer to remain grounded to the systems his or her software is serving
Beyond technical prowess, ABL focuses on the following candidate characteristics. Tangible examples are the best way to highlight these during the evaluation process.
1. Critical thinking: ABL engineers understand the "why" behind all design decisions, operational events and test outcomes.
2. Ability to deal with ambiguity: there is no roadmap and ABL engineers must be comfortable defining their own pathway to an objective.
3. End-to-end ownership: projects are delivered fully complete and ready for flight; there is no one to pick up the slack of partially complete work.
