We might not be a startup, but we offer the environment and feel of a young company with our primary investor being the parent organization. We work hard and play hard and the only thing that really matters is slinging code that makes a difference.
To achieve this, Raytheon is split into many niche skill areas, with their own opportunities, work environments, and cultures. Interest in participating with ReadyForce was initiated by the two units described below.
Raytheon-SI: Founded on the Florida beaches, our dress code is shorts or flip-flops but not both. We have been growing rapidly for the past 8 years and are now a 300 person organisation. We do some of the most advanced information or "cyber" security research on the planet, primarily for US government customers. Our team is comprised of people that have presented at every major security conference, have been core contributors to a laundry list of major open source projects, and integral parts of numerous successful commercial security ventures.
Raytheon-BBN is another, started in 1948 by MIT professors, BBN Technologies has churned out technologies ranging from packet switching (1969) to the first network email (1971) to the first router (1976). With expertise spanning information security, speech and language processing, networking, distributed systems, and sensing and control systems, BBN scientists and engineers have amassed a substantial collection of innovations and patented solutions.
Many other organisations exist and work together to solve some of the most challenging problems in computer science and cyber security.
We are looking for people to help us develop a broad range of CNO tools for various government customers.
Candidates must be able to play both sides of the fence, both defeating and developing new and advanced security techniques. Projects will be undertaken in small teams with close coordination with customers to quickly enhance capabilities or resolve issues in existing tools.
Strong C/C++ experience, an understanding of OS internals, and familiarity with assembly and networking protocols is required to join our CNO development team. Our projects include developing and enhancing state of the art kernel and user-land security tools related to software protection, host-based personal security tools, and system analysis.
Key areas of focus include Reverse Engineering, Vulnerability Assessments, Wireless and Network Communications, Hypervisors, Malware, Mobile/Embedded Development, Win32/Linux Kernel development, and Constraint Solving.
Requirements: As the majority of our customers are government agencies all candidates must meet the minimum qualifications for access to classified information. U.S. citizenship is required. All candidates must be able to maintain a government security clearance.
Degrees are not required for our positions, but they can be helpful.
Certifications are neither helpful nor required.
