Annapolis Junction

Software Developers at Raytheon COI solve cutting-edge cyber security problems on both sides of the fence. Our projects involve the internals of systems rarely studied by other developers, including Windows and Linux kernel development, hypervisors, forensic and anti-forensic techniques, rootkit analysis, anti-reverse engineering, embedded systems development, and emulator development.

Projects will be undertaken in small teams with close coordination with customers. A typical emulator development project involves collaboration with hardware engineers and reverse engineers. A project to develop a new security technique involves collaboration with teams who set out to break that technique.

We take our work and our fun seriously. We refuse any work that isn’t hard and engaging, we make sure our engineers have the tools they need to do their jobs, and focus on recognizing results. Our research and development projects cover the spectrum of security technologies for computer network operations, if it runs code somebody in our office has looked at it or something in its class.
