Are you looking for a new and challenging career? ProSync is seeking an experienced Data & Data Management Software Engineer III with experience writing scripts in Bash/Python, using Unix Command Line, developing with Java in a Unix environment and other systems, concepts and technologies such as: GPFS, HDFS, NoSQL, IaC, Data Flows, NiFi abd Unix deployment configuration/ troubleshooting. If you're ready to make an impact and join ProSync's amazing community of talented individuals we invite you to apply to be a part of our team!



The Software Engineer designs, develops, tests, deploys, documents, maintains, and enhances complex and diverse software systems based upon documented requirements. These systems might include, but are not limited to, processing­ intensive analytics, novel algorithm development, manipulation of extremely large data sets, real-time systems, business management information systems, and systems which incorporate data repositories, data transport services, and  application and systems development and monitoring. Works individually or as part of a team. Reviews and tests software components for adherence to the design requirements and documents test results. Resolves software problem reports. Utilizes software development and software design methodologies appropriate to the development environment. Provides specific input to the software components of system design to include hardware/software trade-offs, software reuse, use of Open Source Software (OSS) and/or Commercial Off­The-Shelf (COTS) Government Off-The-Shelf (GOTS) software in place of new development, and requirements analysis and synthesis from system level to individual software components. Experience developing in Unix. Ability to perform shell scripting. Working knowledge of Configuration Management (CM) tools and Web Services implementation.



As part of the The High Performance Data Analytics (HPDA) effort you will help create, explore, evaluate, and demonstrate the application of High Performance Computing (HPC) technologies to high-priority data analytic challenges. This task will develop and maintain software components that help establish HPDA capabilities and transform the automatic SIGINT processing infrastructure and HPC mission towards this goal. This task will explore the application of HPC systems in both data-at-rest and streaming data scenarios. Additionally, this effort will collect data regarding unique benchmarks and compare those results against commodity cloud systems.


The software components developed  will enhance and complement the Government's existing capabilities and will be done in a way that is compliant with the Government's architectural vision and objectives in order to do the following:

  • Prototype, develop and sustain streaming analytic system software
  • Prototype, develop and sustain machine learning analytic system software
  • Prototype, develop and sustain graph analytic system software
  • Develop and sustain data analytic middleware components
  • Develop and sustain file system and storage components
  • Develop and enhance NIFI processors as needed
  • Develop data stores, both metadata and content
  • Conduct data analysis on large datasets using modern data science principles, tools and techniques


 As part of your Development Activities you shall:

  • Provide parallel development and integration of key components and services that, when completed, will support the migration of mission applications. The contractor shall team with the Government POC to devise integrated scheduled for component and service development. The development team will apply agile development methods, but shall be constrained by a solid architecture under the control of the Government technical lead.
  • Continually revisit schedule and technical progress relative to plan and adjust accordingly. Provide a set of documentation necessary to support the integration of the new services.
  • The software development should comply with HPC Software Capabilities and Services software engineering practices governing coding standards, code reviews, unit testing, configuration management and documentation.

There is a need for development of SW services that enable efficient management of analytic work-flows across the HPC Enterprise while maintaining security separation.
