Software Code Evaluator, Mid

The Challenge:
Where do you go with your career when you have serious coding skills, but you don’t want to write code all day? You hunt programming flaws as a software security evaluator. Software vulnerabilities can be problematic in any organization, but when it’s software the military uses, they can threaten national security. That’s why we need you - an experienced developer who knows how to hunt through functional code to find the flaws.
 
On our team, you’ll use your development skills to find flawed programming that could cause exploitable vulnerabilities and poor performance. You’ll write scripts to evaluate object-oriented programming source code and, when you find flaws in the code, map those issues to the need it fails to meet. Your findings will go back to the vendor, letting them know they need to fix the software before the military can use it. Join our team and let’s hunt down bad code!


The Perks:
You’ll have the opportunity to connect in Communities of Excellence with others doing similar work, because we know that creativity is contagious, and when you don’t have to recreate the wheel, you can focus on new challenges. Benefit from our Digital University, an online learning portal where you can access more than 5000 tech courses, certifications and books. Be empowered by our latest tools and technology, or take advantage of our tuition assistance. Take your creative ideas to the next level by applying to our Tech Innovators Program, which offers funding and time to explore your own interests.

-2+ years of experience with Web-based software development and object-oriented programming using Java
