Cryptography Tools Software Developer

The Challenge:

Are you looking for an opportunity to not just develop software, but to build a system that will create a new language for cryptographic tools?  As a full-stack developer, you can solve a problem with a complete end-to-end solution in a fast-paced, agile environment. We’re looking for a developer with the advanced skills needed to develop methods of processing data in an encrypted state and to make those methods access to application developers who are not cryptographers.

This role will work with cutting-edge teams to develop new methods for cryptographic protections of data during computation. We need an expert developer with a passion for programming language development. We need a full-stack developer who will use their passion to learn new tools and techniques, identify and implement system improvements, and mentor teammates. You’ll analyze the needs and the environment to make sure the solution considers the current architecture and operating environment, as well as future functionality and enhancements. Join us as we build systems to protect the nation’s most critical data.

Empower change with us.
