Our applied research staff work in highly collaborative teams learning, pushing, and delivering cutting edge solutions to our nation's most challenging problems. We are looking for entry-level candidates with a passion for gaining a detailed understanding of how computer systems, software, and services work and interact with one another. This understanding provides the foundation for developing skill and competency in:
- IO and CNO technologies
- Reverse Engineering
- OS/Network/Application Vulnerability Analysis
- Secure OS/Network/Application design
- Malware Analysis
- Automated software testing
- Firmware and OS level development

Selected candidates will contribute to beyond state of the art contracted and internally funded R&D. They can expect to become members of high-performing teams of world class research scientists and engineers who consistently deliver world best Cyber, IO, and CNO capabilities.

Selected candidates will also be eligible for participation in a Lockheed Martin Incentive Plan.
Basic Qualifications:
B.S. degree in technical disciplines such as Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Security, or Information Technology - or equivalent applied experience.

Applicants must have skills in:
