Clearance Level Needed: Secret
Do you eat, live and breathe software programming? Are you obsessed with how it all works together? Do you leave Google searches to the amateurs and create your own path to solving really challenging technical problems? Do you love building or programming things all the way from an idea to a final, finished product? Do the answers to our most vexing cyber security issues bug you (pun intended)? Have you memorized all the lines in “The Matrix”? (Go ahead, you can admit it. We’re good at keeping secrets.) Do you have a passion for using your skills to protect our national and homeland security? If you answered “yes,” the Cyber Operations and Exploitation Solutions Division of ManTech’s Mission, Cyber and Intelligence Solutions (MCIS) Group is looking for a versatile and incredible Software Developer - Cyber Operations and Exploitation to join our elite team of technical leaders who deliver software solutions to government agencies. Oh, did we mention that we offer the best benefits and training opportunities in the industry? This position is in either Vienna or Tysons Corner, Virginia, so you’re right next to Washington, D.C. and all the cool stuff the city offers, like a social life.
What you’ll be doing:
You’ll have the professional challenge of your career designing and developing software security solutions. You’ll also need to work and play well with others, since you’ll collaborate with your fellow programmers as part of an Agile team. At other times, you’ll need to work by yourself (with peer review of your work, of course) on technical areas that you’re strong in. If you don’t know the answer to something, you’ll need the humility to go ask the right people for their expertise. You’ll also need to listen well, since you’ll engage with customers to fully understand what they need and then develop and deliver the best technical solution for them. The buck will stop with you: you’ll own a project from idea through completion. You’ll need to master details while understanding the Big Picture environment. To do all of this, you need to be very confident applying your problem-solving and debugging skills, along with your deep knowledge of software and operating system fundamentals, to developing solutions Windows, Linux, iOS, and Android system solutions. You’ll also need to read and understand lots of super technical documentation that confuses the heck out of the rest of us.
ManTech can offer you serious career growth. Our senior programming leads are recognized by name within the cyber security community, so you if you join us you’ll be on track to become a sort of “cyber VIP.” Our alumni have become Chief Technology Officers or have founded their own companies, and are in-demand speakers on cyber security at industry conferences.
