Do you want to streamline and automate security operations? Do you have security operations experience and strong software development skills? We are seeking creative individuals that want to put their SOC experience and development skills to use developing prototypes and capabilities to make security operations more efficient and effective.
We’re looking for developers with a background in cybersecurity operations to work on a variety of projects. We focus on adversary emulation and security orchestration, so you’ll support projects to automate cybersecurity operations, emulate adversary behavior, and improve the defensive postures of our sponsors. Much of our code is Python or Javascript, but we’re looking for good developers in any language. Some examples of work that we’ve open-sourced includes ATT&CKCalderaMultiscanner, and a number of STIX libraries.
As a cybersecurity engineer in MITRE’s Cyber Operations and Effects Tech Center, you’ll support cybersecurity missions across a wide variety of organizations. We work across MITRE’s R&D centers in the federal civilian and national security space, but beyond that we work and collaborate with the public on open source software, with open standards organizations, and with industry.
Why choose between doing meaningful work and having a fulfilling life? At MITRE, you can have both. That's because MITRE people are committed to tackling our nation's toughest challenges—and we're committed to the long-term well-being of our employees. MITRE is different from most technology companies. We are a not-for-profit corporation chartered to work for the public interest, with no commercial conflicts to influence what we do. The R&D centers we operate for the government create lasting impact in fields as diverse as cybersecurity, healthcare, aviation, defense, and enterprise transformation. We're making a difference every day—working for a safer, healthier, and more secure nation and world. Our workplace reflects our values. We offer competitive benefits, exceptional professional development opportunities, and a culture of innovation that embraces diversity, inclusion, flexibility, collaboration, and career growth. If this sounds like the choice you want to make, then choose MITRE—and make a difference with us.
