Our client's project focuses on R&D and prototyping of new CNO capabilities for the Maryland customer. The work involves Vulnerability Research, Exploit Development, CNO tool development and enhancement, and infrastructure support (DevOps) for access operations. Platforms involved include iOS, Android, MacOS, Linux, Windows, and other environments. This is some of the most impactful work in the Intelligence Community, with the new capabilities developed by this team getting rapidly deployed and into the hands of users. One of the best things about this project is the customer. They give Engineers huge latitude in choosing programming languages and technologies, and they encourage exploration of new tech. The focus here is RESULTS, not which methods are followed to achieve them, so creativity and flexibility are part of the culture. There is almost no distinction here between blue-badgers and green-badgers: the team is nicely integrated, the people are nice and highly-competent, and the Branch and Section Leads do an excellent job of shielding the engineers from any organizational politics. The customer also understands that Engineers are human beings that each have unique needs. As an example, one of our client's Engineers recently became a father, and the customer was extremely flexible on parental leave and work hours. That type of flexibility is common: work hours are generally whatever you like between 6am and 6pm, with some people working fewer than 5 days a week, and others regularly flexing their time across multiple weeks. This team regularly needs Vulnerability Researchers, Exploit Developers, CNO Tool Developers, and Reverse Engineers. While roles open and close, the program Lead's attitude is "find us good people; we'll find good places for them". All roles require a TS/SCI + FS Poly clearance.
