Department Description:

Sandia's Computational Simulation Group (CSG) is a highly integrated team of departments focused on delivering an integrated suite of trusted, world-class, predictive engineering tools enabling multi-physics analyses for national security and national competitiveness applications. This suite of computational simulation tools and supporting framework is known as SIERRA and has explicit ties to the Labs' workflow, including geometry and meshing, design and optimization, visualization, and maintenance and support. The CSG employs rigorous product development processes where staff are the key impetus for process improvements through adoption of new techniques and industry best practices. SIERRA development is conducted under the principles of lean/agile software practices. These development practices help ensure effective and efficient support to customers through a mature and integrated software infrastructure which is transparent across the customer base, regardless of missions/programs/projects. For planning purposes, the infrastructure is subdivided into several components: algorithms and software development (build environments, software quality tools, and software testing), software deployment (licensing, distribution, and export controls), and the software maintenance and services (software setup and updates, software training, and help desk). This infrastructure serves as the foundation upon which systems and capabilities are built, tested, deployed, and sustained; and, the Computational Simulation Infrastructure Team is the coordination point for software development tools, processes, and end-user distribution for the SIERRA suite of capabilities.

Security Clearance:

Position requires a Department of Energy (DOE) L security clearance to start, or equivalent active security clearance with another U.S. government agency (e.g., DOD).

Sandia is required by DOE to conduct a pre-employment drug test and background review that includes checks of personal references, credit, law enforcement records, and employment/education verifications. Applicants for employment need to be able to maintain a DOE L-level security clearance, which requires U.S. citizenship. If you hold more than one citizenship (i.e., of the U.S. and another country), your ability to obtain a security clearance may be impacted.

Applicants offered employment with Sandia are subject to a federal background investigation to meet the requirements for access to classified information or matter if the duties of the position require a DOE security clearance. Substance abuse or illegal drug use, falsification of information, criminal activity, serious misconduct or other indicators of untrustworthiness can cause a clearance to be denied or terminated by DOE, resulting in the inability to perform the duties assigned and subsequent termination of employment.

EEO Statement:

All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, disability, or veteran status and any other protected class under state or federal law.
