Arlington - CNO Developer

Company Description:

In 2008 SI Government Solutions was acquired by Raytheon.  Since then we have continued our legacy of providing software and hardware level information security solutions for our government customers and have maintained our own culture within the larger Raytheon.  We focus on providing high end talent and solutions to solve hard problems in computer network operations.  In addition to our competitive salary, benefits, and training, one of the best benefits is that you no longer feel like the only smart person in the room. There’s always someone to learn from and to challenge you. 

Unlike many employers we do not hire to fill a specific seat on a specific program.  We hire people to be part of our team, and find work that fits our skills.  We work on cutting edge low level development projects in support of US government missions.  Our small teams of 1 to 10 people develop mission critical software, often with short release cycles, and close partnership with the end users.  As a result we are always working on solving new challenging problems and get to see the impact we are having on our nation's security. 

Fundamentally we are looking for the same core skill sets at each of our sites, FL, MD, VA, TX, AL, and SC. However, as one would expect, each site has its own sub-cultures and focus areas.  We spend much of their time working side by side with our customers primarily on software development and software analysis projects.  Being this closely embedded provides some excellent opportunities to actually see the results of your research being applied.  

We take our work and our fun seriously.  We refuse any work that isn’t hard and engaging, we make sure our engineers have the tools they need to do their jobs, and focus on recognizing results.  Our research and development projects cover the spectrum of offensive and defensive security technologies for computer network operations.   It is safe to say that if it runs code somebody in our organization has looked at it or something in its class. 

Key organizational areas of focus include:

  • Reverse Engineering
  • Vulnerability Assessments
  • Wireless and Network Communications
  • Hypervisors and emulation
  • Mobile/Embedded Development
  • Windows Kernel and User-mode development

Position Description:
Information security continues to be a growth industry.  We are constantly looking to find the right candidates who can do this challenging work. 

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.

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. 

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.

Our tools are built primarily in C and C++, with some components dropping into assembly as needed.  A strong aptitude developing low level modules on some platform is required.  We develop tools to work on desktops, appliances, infrastructure, and mobile devices. 

Working as part of a team you will also need to be familiar with source management tools such as GIT and subversion.

Degrees are not required for our positions, but they can be helpful.  Certifications are neither helpful nor required.
