Herndon, VA - Full Time

US Citizenship required for security clearance purposes

As a recognized leader in machine learning research and development areas including sensors and signal processing, electronic warfare, and video and image understanding. We seek to utilize machine learning/artificial intelligence to advance our understanding of signals and systems in a rapidly changing environment. Many of our efforts have transitioned to Phase II or III programs designed to advance the use of artificial intelligence in the signal processing domain.

We are growing quickly based on our past success and our trajectory for the future. If you are interested in joining a team of passionate, intelligent and innovative researchers who work in highly-collaborative teams to keep ahead of the cutting edge in machine learning and signal processing, this is the place for you.

Here’s a glimpse of what you would be doing on a daily basis:

  • Collaborate with a team to develop, design and implement complex signal processing solutions in various systems
  • Conduct research to develop advanced machine learning algorithms and techniques in application areas such as radar, electronic warfare, sonar, SIGINT, RF geo-location and image processing systems
  • Analyze complex problems and phenomenology with focus on developing machine learning models to process and understand signal data faster, more accurately and more efficiently
  • Transition operational signal processing based neural networks to real-time systems, field-ready software applications and/or prototype demonstrations


  • United States citizenship - due to national security clearance requirements, all applicants must be clearable to TS/SCI and/or ISSP. US Citizenship is a requirement for clearance.
  • BA/BS, MS or PhD degree with relevant experience in electrical engineering/signal processing, physics, applied mathematics or related technical discipline
