Raytheon offers an innovative and inclusive culture; welcoming diversity and collaboration and providing numerous opportunities for career growth.

We are currently hiring a Senior Software Engineer to join the Relocatable-Over-The-Horizon Radar (ROTHR) team in Chesapeake, VA.

ROTHR is an established program with a broad variety of complex sub-systems and technologies that range from mainframes, Windows client/server, and Linux clusters, to embedded Linux with custom FPGA processing. ROTHR is part of the Missile Defense and Surveillance Systems Engineering team within Raytheon IDS.
