Emulation developers design custom software tools and techniques to emulate hardware architectures, including microprocessors, memory, bus architectures, communication devices, storage, peripherals, human interface devices, systems-on-a-chip (SoCs), and more. They have a strong understanding of how systems work “under the hood,” and as a result they work at the hardware level and the lowest level of software, where the operating system interacts with hardware. They also mentor and lead junior-level developers to accomplish mission objectives and solve real-time engineering challenges.
Successful candidates will enjoy reversing complex, novel, and poorly documented systems. They will perform reverse engineering at all levels, to include manual and automated analysis with Ghidra, IDA, and other tools. Scripting and automation of reverse engineering tasks within the framework is a common requirement. Occasionally the reversing will also include hardware or complex databases and applications.
Our Annapolis Junction office is in National Business Park, just outside Fort Meade, Maryland. Situated between Baltimore and Washington, DC, Annapolis Junction is surrounded on all sides by American history, breathtaking national parks, world-famous art and science museums, and a vibrant and welcoming cultural setting.
We take our work and our fun seriously. We are passionate about engineering, and we prove it by funding internal R&D concepts from early inception through product development and customer delivery. We believe the best ideas stand on their own merits, and we fund ideas from our most junior engineers to our most seasoned staff. We reward excellence early and often through monetary awards, raises, and promotions. We keep ourselves sharp through weekly engineer-driven technical talks, and we team up regularly to compete in CTFs. If you walk through our Maryland office, you might catch a couple of us taking a break for a round of table tennis, Smash Brothers, or bughouse. If you show up around 2 or 3, you can join us for tea time and specialty coffee pour-overs. On Mondays we have lunch brought in from one of the many great area restaurants, paid for by the company. Our office outings are crazy fun and typically include go-karting, axe-throwing, indoor skydiving, or camping.
