Responsibilities

Raytheon Technologies is a premier engineering company which provides technical solutions in software development and systems engineering that address security challenges and strengthen our customers. Raytheon hires industry-leading professionals, and we treat them like industry-leading 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 Technologiesengineers are developing advanced analytics helping transform analysis by making sense of the massive amounts of data that must be processed at break neck speed. Our Knowledge Management expertise includes utilizing semantic web technologies, storage, indexing, retrieval of structured/unstructured data, and social network analysis to extract and build graphic representations.
Position Description:
Vulnerability Researchers at Raytheon Technologies 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 will be undertaken in small teams with close coordination with customers. All of our engineers write code, but many of our engineers spend as much time taking systems apart as building new ones. A typical day may involve studying disassembly or writing python to audit a piece of C++ code.

We take our work and our fun seriously. We are passionate about engineering, and we prove it by funding internal R&D concepts from early inception through product development and customer delivery. We believe the best ideas stand on their own merits, and we fund ideas from our most junior engineers to our most seasoned staff. We reward excellence early and often through monetary awards, raises, and promotions. We keep ourselves sharp through weekly engineer-driven technical talks, and we team up regularly to compete in CTFs. If you walk through our Maryland office, you might catch a couple of us taking a break for a round of table tennis, Smash Brothers, or bughouse. If you show up around 2 or 3, you can join us for tea time and specialty coffee pour-overs. We are constantly looking to find the right candidates who can do this challenging work.
