Across the globe, nations and organizations are growing increasingly dependent on cyber for every aspect of life. Cyber is a relatively new domain, changes constantly, and has a fundamentally different nature from the domains of air, land, sea and space. There is tremendous opportunity and necessity to find creative, innovative solutions for operating in cyber and MITRE's Fort Meade cyber work program is at the forefront of inventing those solutions.

Our sponsors look to MITRE for thought leadership coupled with technical excellence to revolutionize cyber operations. As a non-profit, operating Federally Funded Research and Development Centers, MITRE has been given the challenge to look over the horizon, identify upcoming hard problems, disruptors, and new solutions.

We take a holistic approach by blending disciplines including computer science, reverse engineering, RF engineering, signal processing, military operations, information warfare, policy analysis, and system architecture. We invent and test new concepts and technologies through research, prototyping and peer-reviewed papers.

The MITRE Ft. Meade cyber work program is dedicated to creating innovative solutions for our sponsors to defend the nation, gather intelligence, and project power in and through cyberspace. We seek people who have expertise in the relevant disciplines, understand how these missions are conducted today, have a vision for how to revolutionize those missions, and the passion to solve hard problems.

Strategize with senior government personnel, advise and influence on cyber operations vision. Engineer innovative tactics, techniques, and procedures to ensure resiliency in the face of cyber-attack, prevent malicious cyber activity, and detect the presence of adversaries on friendly networks.

Develop innovative cyber operations strategies, tactics, techniques and procedures. Work closely with senior MITRE and government leaders to communicate vision and strategy to improve cyber operations. Lead a team of MITRE personnel to implement strategy and/or develop prototype solutions.
