Annapolis Junction, Maryland, USA
Raytheon is a premier engineering company that provides technical solutions in software development and systems engineering that address security challenges. Raytheon hires industry-leading cyber professionals, and we treat them like industry-leading cyber professionals. We bring exceptional talent to an array of missions that includes computer network operations, vulnerabilities, characterization, information assurance, and emerging technologies to expand cybersecurity solutions. Raytheon engineers are developing advanced analytics helping transform analysis by making sense of the massive amounts of data that must be processed quickly to respond to evolving mission needs.
Vulnerability researchers at Raytheon CODEX analyze systems to understand how they work and how they behave when they break. Candidates must be able to play both sides of the fence, both developing and defeating new and advanced security techniques. Projects are undertaken in small teams with close coordination with customers. All our engineers write code, but many of our engineers spend as much time taking systems apart as building new ones. A typical day can involve studying disassembly or writing Python to audit a piece of C++ code.
Information security continues to be a growth industry. We are constantly looking to find the right candidates who can do this challenging work.
