As a software engineer, you can solve a problem with a complete end-to-end solution in a fast-paced Agile environment. We are looking for a developer with the skills needed to build a cross-domain solution that provides essential security inspections and data sanitization functions to support a broad set of missions, from vision to production-ready systems.

This role is more than just coding.

Using Agile life cycle development programming languages, including C, Rust, Go, Java, Python, JavaScript, and HTML/CSS, and cutting-edge technologies, you will independently design, code, and test major features and work jointly with other team members to deliver complex changes. You will collaborate with product management, engineering teams, and operations teams to develop innovative solutions that meet business needs with respect to functionality, performance, reliability, realistic implementation schedules, and adherence to development goals and principles. Join us as we build a highly reliable Enterprise Cross-Domain Service to meet our customer’s ever-evolving mission needs.

  • Knowledge of conferring with system and hardware engineers to derive software requirements and subsequently develop them for production

  • Knowledge of Cross-Domain guard solutions, including Forcepoint High-Speed Guards, OWL Data Diodes, or ISSE Guards
