Title

Cybersecurity Systems & Architecture Engineer - Arlington, VA 

Category Engineering  
Description

STR performs advanced research and development using machine learning, program analysis, optimization, artificial intelligence, and formal methods for the cybersecurity and resiliency of cyber-physical systems. Targeting the hardest security challenges facing our national defense, STR is developing cutting-edge capabilities in cyber-physical systems modeling, vulnerability analysis, and attack detection and remediation.

We seek applicants that are interested in tackling the design and assessment of complex systems to identify the most critical areas to apply cyber resiliency mechanisms from the earliest phases of the design cycle. Experience using formal modeling languages (e.g. SysML) to specify a system architecture model and leverage model data to inform cyber analysis is desired. We are growing rapidly and hiring at all levels and across disciplines for new and exciting projects.

Software-centric systems engineers and analysts who are interested in developing and applying techniques to streamline the development of cyber resilient systems from specification to implementation and deployment are encouraged to apply.

Job Description:

  • Work in small research teams to develop innovative cyber resilient system designs and software prototypes
  • Apply a diverse set of advanced technologies, e.g., program analysis (static, dynamic, symbolic), formal methods, artificial intelligence, and machine learning, to solve the most difficult cybersecurity challenges
  • Span the stack or find a niche: from developing tools for the automatic instrumentation and modification of program binaries, to automation and planning technologies to coordinate large-scale cyber operations, STR cyber programs cover a broad territory.
