Title: Senior Software Engineer
Location: Central Virginia (Madison, VA); Washington, DC metro area (Alexandria, VA); Seattle, WA
ARiA applies broad interdisciplinary expertise in acoustics, machine learning, modeling & simulation, and signal processing toward innovative science and engineering research and development for a diverse set of government and corporate clients. Partnering with government, industry, and academia, ARiA solves critical challenges.
ARiA is a small business where you can make a big difference. Our employees, including those at entry-level, are working together with the CIO of the Air Force to use cognitive computing to change the way the government acquires technology and working with top Navy leaders to use video games and simulation to change the way sailors are trained to use sonar.

ARiA is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
ARiA is looking for highly motivated self-starters and low-ego team players to join our team as Senior Software Engineers.
These positions are an opportunity to join a rapidly growing firm where you will engage deeply in challenging problems while developing cutting-edge technologies that address crucial needs.
Strong candidates for these roles at ARiA must value excellence and work with confidence, but without ego. Our engineers and scientists all have deep knowledge and exercise a high degree of leadership in their daily work. Members of the ARiA team have strongly-held, defensible ideas and advocate for what they believe is right, but are quick to exercise intellectual humility and acknowledge that they can often be wrong. Successful employees of ARiA are adept at working closely and collaboratively with team members and identifying and evaluating trade-offs when developing solutions.
As a Senior Software Engineer you will perform a variety of software engineering tasks working in close coordination with other ARiA scientists and engineers including design, development, and testing of:
- numerical-simulation software,
- scientific-visualization software,
- machine-learning software, and
- signal-processing software
to support prototypes and products such as training tools integrated with real-time physics-based simulation and AI tools integrated with tactical systems.
Algorithm and software design, development, research, and testing to support prototypes and products
Supporting the transition of research algorithms to fielded systems
Preparing documentation to summarize design and status of prototypes and products
Assisting with in-field integration, testing, and support, with some local travel required
Developing an interface between a C++ underwater-acoustics physics engine and a video game for education and training
Developing algorithms and software for a cloud-deployed cognitive tool that allows natural-language query of legal documents to answer user questions about government regulations and supporting the DevOps process for deployment of the prototype
Applicants selected for employment will be subject to a government security investigation and must meet eligibility requirements, including U.S. citizenship, for access to sensitive information.
Bachelor’s degree or greater in a relevant technical field (Computer Science, Engineering, or equivalent)
Expertise developing and deploying software in an agile, continuous-integration (CI) framework across a variety of hardware platforms (desktop, server, cloud) using modern tools including containerization (e.g., Docker, Kubernetes)
Exceptional ability and desire to acquire new knowledge and skills to solve challenges
Ability to work independently but collaboratively
Ability to manage multiple projects in a fast-paced professional office environment
Ability to communicate technical solutions to colleagues and customers
Superior oral and written communications skills
Desirable Skills, Qualifications, and Experience:
Master’s degree or greater in a relevant technical field (Acoustics, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or similar) or equivalent professional experience
Master’s degree or greater in a relevant technical field (Computer Science, Engineering, or equivalent) or equivalent professional experience
Knowledge of and experience with GPGPU programing (CUDA, TensorFlow)
Knowledge of and experience with deep learning and modern deep-learning frameworks (TensorFlow, PyTorch)
Knowledge of and experience with image processing including modern deep-learning methods
Knowledge of and experience with natural-language-processing and/or information retrieval
Experience with scientific computing (e.g., numerical integration, special functions)
Knowledge of and prior practical work in signal processing (e.g., linear-system theory, digital signal processing)
Exposure to signa- processing applications in radar or sonar such as: beamforming, matched filtering, and spectral estimation
Knowledge of and facility with concepts from college-level physics (e.g., acoustics, wave propagation)
Knowledge of and facility with concepts from college-level mathematics (e.g., partial differential equations and linear algebra)
