Meet Chris Miller

Title: Principal Embedded Software Engineer / Agile Product Owner
How long he’s been at Northrop Grumman:
 5+ years

What are you responsible for as a software engineer at your company?

As a software engineer at Northrop Grumman, I am responsible for every aspect of the software development process. From the inception of a particular functionality via a request from the customer to the formal quality testing and customer training for the final product, it is my duty to see a project through from start to finish.

These projects always start with setting a cadence with customers to home in on their highest priority needs. From there, I work the project through my process from developing software requirements to implementation to testing and debugging to get to the final product. Once the final product has been completed, I create support and troubleshooting documentation and lead training sessions for the customer.

Why do Northrop Grumman Employees like Working at the Baltimore site?

The site is home to the Technology Underground, which is a collaboration space designed to support experimentation and exploration of concepts. The space contains a variety of rotating and updated equipment, which employees can use to bring their ideas to life.

In addition to everything Baltimore has to offer, the site is 40 miles from Washington, D.C., which can be easily reached by car, Amtrak or MARC train. Employees can use their flexible work arrangements to enjoy all that D.C. has to offer, from the restaurants and history of the U Street corridor, to the postcard expanse of the National Mall, to the sports-central home of the Nationals and DC United in Navy Yard.

Life in Baltimore

When we say the Baltimore area has it all, we do mean all—our list of top attractions include:

  • Cultural variety – Enjoy all the city and all it has to offer. Go to the Baltimore Zoo or the National Aquarium. Cheer for the Orioles or Ravens. Walk and explore the Inner Harbor or Historic Fells Point. Don’t forget to try some of our Blue Crabs!
  • A range of beach options – With more than 3,100 miles of shoreline, Maryland has plenty of great places to sink your toes into the sand.
  • Natural wonders – Visit nearby Deep Creek Lake, the largest lake in the state at 3,900 acres, or enjoy the lovely nature walks of Assateague, where the wild horses of Assateague Island National Seashore roam. Even closer to Annapolis, you can relax and enjoy the outdoors, go boating, or cast your line and do some freshwater fishing for bass and pike.
  • Outdoor excitement – Hit the ski slopes at Wisp, Maryland’s only four-season ski resort, where you can enjoy winter sports like snow tubing, and year-round outdoor fun like a zip line and all-terrain buggies.
