Sandia National Laboratories R&D Computer Science ND Enterprise Analytics (Experienced) in Albuquerque, New Mexico


We are seeking a highly motivated R&D S&E, Computer Science professional with expertise in the design, development, and application of software-driven models and tools in support of the Strategic Enterprise Planning & Integration program. You will work in teams (with people throughout the NNSA Enterprise) and independently to conceive, develop, and execute analyses and design, develop, and engineer models to gain insights and forecasts into trade-offs between the cost effectiveness, agility, and assurance of our current approaches to weapon product realization. You will also apply sound and experienced technical judgment using scientific and engineering methodologies and principles to recognize problems, and formulate solutions; collect data through research, interviews, and other means; and prepare analyses for SNL management and, in some cases, NNSA program leaders. These analyses may include information gathering through literature searches, site visits, interviews, physical and computational simulations, and assessment of customer requirements. The results of analyses will result in briefing packages, documented plans, reports, schedules, and other artifacts designed for high-level SNL and NNSA customer consideration and future implementation.

On any given day, you may be called on to:

  • Work on the Weapon Strategic Planning Tool that is being developed for NNSA that will enable them to evaluate stockpile options and manage stockpile resources. This is an excellent opportunity to learn how NNSA decides the composition of the stockpile and how they manage it.
  • Provide decision insight to customers on ill-defined or complex, multi-domain problems utilizing the tools and models they develop. Effective communication skills are required to present results of analyses to SNL management and NNSA/DoD customers including explanations of staff member-derived options, trade-offs and recommendations.

Moderate travel may be required; flexibility exercised when possible.


  • Bachelor’s degree or higher in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Operations Research, Mathematics, Data Science, or relevant Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math (STEM) discipline.
  • Five years of relevant experience
  • Experience in software design, engineering, and development, including familiarity with modern software development practices and tools.


  • Knowledge of the practices and processes of the design and development of nuclear weapon systems, sub-systems and components leading up to full weapon development and production is a definite plus but not a requirement.
  • Strong programming skills in C, C++, Java, Python, JavaScript, MATLAB, or equivalent.
  • Master’s degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Operations Research, Mathematics, Data Science, or relevant Science, Technology, Engineering, or Math (STEM) discipline.
  • Experience in at least one of Angular, React, Vue, or similar JavaScript framework.
  • Experience developing on the Microsoft SharePoint technology stack.
  • Full stack development experience.
  • Experience developing on, and targeted for, Sandia’s unclassified and classified environments.
  • Ability to self-start, work independently, and exercise mature judgment with only broad direction
  • Demonstrated strong analytical and creative problem-solving skills.
  • Proven ability to independently determine and develop innovative approaches and solutions to a diverse range of technical and analytical problems.
  • Demonstrated success in cross-functional teams to facilitate and drive integrated, multi-disciplinary solutions to complex problems.
  • Demonstrated ability to elicit customer input, manage customer interactions, produce required deliverables (urgently at times), and meet customer expectations in a competent and professional manner.
