Communications Engineer

The Challenge:

What if you could use your engineering skills to transform mission critical systems? As an Electrical Engineer, you understand the power behind complex systems. That knowledge is key when it comes to analyzing and building systems that perform reliably and safely. We’re looking for an Electrical Engineer who can use their skills to develop advanced software communication systems that interface with Cyber physical systems.

Our team models and simulates complex systems to enhance and upscale traditional Cyber processes and services. That’s why we need you, an Electrical Engineer, with a solid background in signal processing and communications to help us design and develop tools for understanding how various radio frequency (RF) systems work, developing algorithms for detection and identification of security vulnerabilities in RF systems. You’ll design, develop, test, and validate engineering solutions for communications systems. You’ll directly impact mission critical systems by identifying and analyzing system architectures and RF protocols. This is a chance to use your digital signal processing and communications skills while gaining experience in modern radio communications technology. Join us and take on exciting challenges in engineering as we support internal and external clients.

Empower change with us.

You Have:

  • 3+ months of experience with professional communications system design
  • Experience with developing Digital Signal Processing (DSP) algorithms for wireless communications
  • Experience with programming languages, including MATLAB, Python, C, or C++
  • Ability to obtain a security clearance
  • BA or BS degree

Nice If You Have:

  • Experience with physical layer modern radio hardware and Software Defined Radios (SDRs)
  • Experience with SDR tools and SDR drivers
  • Experience with performing reverse engineering and vulnerability analysis of wireless network communications
  • Experience with embedded systems
  • BS degree in EE or a related scientific or technical discipline or MA or MS degree


Applicants selected will be subject to a security investigation and may need to meet eligibility requirements for access to classified information.
