Responsibilities for this Position

"You can't take your data back once the bad guys take it!"

Our job is to make sure that our country never needs to! As a Software Engineer, you'll work on the country's most advanced data protection systems implementing Cryptographic Algorithms, Secure Operating Systems and Software Development Tools for our ground-breaking software definable cryptographic platform, the third generation AIM processor.

Here's why people find this work exciting:
  1. Make a Difference: Our work makes a difference to the defense and protection of our country. Which is why Secret security clearance is required once you join our team.
  2. You'll work with Geniuses every day! In this role you'll get to work with some of the most intelligent and insightful tech leaders on the planet - and guess what - they want to share what they know. They are accessible and want to collaborate. Sometimes Geniuses can be unapproachable! Our geniuses are anything but. They want to collaborate and share what they know, which makes working here a mind-expanding experience.
  3. You Will be Constantly Challenged to Learn and Innovate: Cryptography is a rapidly evolving science, and we must constantly adapt in response to emerging threats. We are the core Cryptography Technology Center for our company; we serve a broad range of missions for Space, Aeronautics and Ground.
  4. Solve The Most Challenging and Difficult Tech Problems. If you want to stretch your tech capability to the max - you've come to the right place. The science of data protection is one of our generation's greatest technical challenges.
  5. Work Life Balance - It's still a thing: Yes, we are the best and face constant challenges by newcomers that think they can tackle this complex problem which means we need to meet ever changing cost and speed constraints. First to market is critical to securing future contracts which means you'll have to be agile, flexible, innovate constantly and rapidly. However, unlike other players in this space we still respect your weekends - work life balance is still a thing here.

Yes, we got a competitive salary, generous health and personal benefits, flexible work environment and your contributions are recognized and rewarded. But we also have deep technical prowess. We can dream up anything, but now it must be affordable which requires us to select, develop and deploy the absolute best chip tech and software to make it work.

What You Will Do:

You will develop embedded software for our software definable cryptographic platform including:
  • Custom Operating System (OS) development
  • Machine language implementation of cryptographic algorithms
  • C/C++ implementation of assemblers, debuggers, simulators

Ideal candidates have academic or work experience in OS, machine language or C/C++ development.
