Software Engineer

Company Overview

At Cynnovative, we leverage machine learning, computer science, and software engineering to address high-impact problems in the cyber domain, specifically those which are critical to U.S. national security. We primarily extend fundamental research to invent, design, develop, and deploy prototype solutions that support persistent problems in this domain.

Job Overview

Software engineers at Cynnovative play a key role in our integrated, multi-disciplinary teams. As a software engineer, you will design, build, test, and implement software components to understand and protect people, networks, and devices from cyber threats. You will analyze and build systems that use large data sets while working closely with subject matter experts and end users for deployment in operational environments.

This is a research and development role. The ideal candidate is experienced with the state-of-the-art and is expected to exceed it with their colleagues. Because Cynnovative interfaces with operational users and aspires to create practical solutions, the ideal candidate is similarly comfortable with developing and deploying prototypes while addressing the practical issues inherent in operational scenarios, such as complex data encapsulation, interoperability paradigms, specific processor architecture support, or bespoke deployment environments. As a growing company, Cynnovative offers many leadership opportunities, including as principal investigators of future projects.

May Include

  • Work closely with data scientists to write and test code that implements machine learning and deep learning models in both R&D and operational environments
  • Design, build, test, and implementation of software products throughout the software development life cycle
  • Perform requirements analysis, system architecture design, code quality reviews, and configuration management controls
  • Implement processes, procedures, and standards to improve reliability and maintainability of code bases
  • Collaborate to harden and transition prototypes for production environments
  • Collaborate on composing research papers, white papers, proposals, and presentations to customers supporting ongoing business development
  • Brief external stakeholders on proposed and ongoing research efforts

Must Have

  • B.S. in computer science or similar field (M.S. or Ph.D. preferred for senior positions)
  • Experience in building scalable systems
  • Experience with relational databases and document stores
  • Experience with containerized environments (Docker, Gvisor, etc.)
  • Strong proficiency in object-oriented programming languages (Java or Python)
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills

  • Experience with C, C++ or any other procedural programming language
  • Experience leveraging cloud services, specifically Amazon Web Services (AWS)
  • Familiarity with the fundamentals of machine learning concepts
  • Familiarity with Distributed computing (Kubernetes, Hadoop, Spark, etc.)
  • Familiarity with cyber-related data, tools, and techniques
  • Previous experience in a research and development environment
  • Previous experience working with U.S. federal and public sector clients
