Our work makes a real impact to operational systems. Examples of the types of challenging problems include:
• Developing structural and acoustic models and related signal processing schemes;
• Developing control systems and architectures to affect performance of physical systems;
• Developing sophisticated detection and classification algorithms against state-of-the-art threats;
• Supporting real time implementation and evaluation of your designs in realistic mission scenarios; and
• Developing prototype proof-of-concept systems to address our client’s most challenging problems.

BBN offers a fast paced, collaborative environment with the opportunity to contribute to multiple projects. Career growth is encouraged through support for publications and participation in leading research conferences, training, mentoring, and tuition reimbursement. We offer industry-leading benefits including 401K matching plan, retirement contributions, performance based bonuses, and flexible work hours.
