Job Information

Raytheon Technologies Software Developer in Arlington, Virginia

Cyber Offense and Defense Experts (CODEX) is seeking cyber engineering experts for developer positions. CODEX’s passion is work that challenges, engages, and provides real-world mission impact—which means our research and development efforts cover the full spectrum of security technologies for computer network operations. Developers must play both sides of the fence—developing and defeating advanced new security techniques. Projects are undertaken in small teams in close coordination with customers to quickly deliver or enhance capabilities.

The developer will provide support of custom software design and development of CNO tools and techniques. The developer will be required to provide and author documentation, and participate in design, code, and program reviews. In addition, the developer will provide in-person, on-site technical support to end-users, engage with customers, and conduct capability briefings.

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 Arlington office, you might catch a couple of us taking a break for a round of table tennis. If you show up around 2 or 3pm, you can join us for teatime and specialty coffee pour-overs. On Thursdays we have lunch brought in from one of the many great area restaurants, paid for by the company.

The place of performance for this work can be State College, Pennsylvania, or Arlington, Dulles, or Woodbridge, Virginia.

  • Proficiency in one or more systems programming languages (e.g., C/C++)
