Technical Program and Project Management Specialist

The Opportunity:

What if you could use your project management skills to advance research projects for next-generation applications? As a technical program and project management specialist, you know the complexities of supporting a project from concept to completion. You understand the processes, challenges, and opportunities in developing novel technologies of disruptive capability. That knowledge is key when it comes to assisting the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) with strategic consulting on research and development (R&D) to deploy technology beyond laboratory settings. Many programs require a significant investment of limited resources, and it’s imperative to keep the project on a productive path. That’s why we need you, an experienced program and project management specialist who can help ensure success through careful analysis and effective communication.

On our team, you’ll implement and maintain organizational programs in support of DARPA and the Department of Defense (DoD). You will work closely with government clients to track and evaluate the progress of sponsored research and communicate technical findings to a wide audience. You will leverage technical and programmatic expertise to help with tactical planning using resources like Microsoft Project, and strategic evaluation of new concepts and assessments of technological gaps. You will support our client’s mission by providing recommendations on the feasibility and potential impact of future research programs through in-depth analyses, background research, travel to R&D facilities, and regular interactions with DARPA decision-makers, subject matter experts, financial managers, government stakeholders, and members of the R&D community. You will have the opportunity to work with world-class scientists and engineers to shape national security investment through the development of cutting-edge technologies.

Join us. The world can’t wait.

  • 6+ years of experience authoring technical papers, reports, or program plans for technical and non-technical audiences
