Job Description

Who We Are

Kudu Dynamics is a 100% employee-owned company, forged out of a decade of experience in computer network operations and staffed with talent who have built, overseen, and enhanced capabilities throughout the entire USG arsenal. Our team of hackers, engineers, makers, and shakers have experience spanning centuries of research, development, and operations missions -across desktop, mobile, IoT, and embedded platforms. Kudu Dynamics is uniquely qualified to anticipate tomorrow’s threats and build the next generation of capabilities.

Who You Are

  • A U.S. citizen with the ability to qualify for and maintain a Top Secret security clearance.
  • Have a B.S. or equivalent in computer science or a related field.
  • Have 3 years of experience in the security domain.
  • Identify multiple creative solutions to problems, including the strengths and weaknesses of each approach, and ways to measure results.

Solutions You Provide

  • Research Focused Development: Research is an open-ended difficult problem. It requires developing new techniques and tools for tasks that have never been done before. Can you develop a new tool to test a technique? If it works, then you have now pushed forward human knowledge. If not, then figure out why it didn’t work, and then start again. Are you willing to learn new tools, techniques, languages and then apply them in new and interesting ways? Working with a team to develop new technologies to solve real-world problems, now.
  • CNO Development: Do you have experience with CNO and CNE tool implementation and testing? A good understanding of network operations and the operational life cycles of these tools? Do you have knowledge of current tools and techniques, including how and why are they going to break? Within this position, you will be integrated into a multi-disciplinary team to help them pivot away from, “this is how it’s always been done” towards “this is the right way to do it.”

Benefits We Provide

  • Equity at a company that is doing dynamic, fun, meaningful, and interesting work.
  • A flexible work schedule, with the option to work remotely most days, if that’s your style.
  • Your own yearly discretionary budget to buy the things that make you happy.
  • In addition to highly competitive salaries, we offer premium healthcare options, 401k matching, and an annual pass to a swim in the bonus pool. We also offer 4 weeks of paid time off and 10 federal holidays to utilize whenever you want throughout the year.
  • Awesome, enthusiastic coworkers and a company culture that promotes a jerk-free environment. Rattle the windows with the company band, participate in board game or movie nights, and help balance out the scotch vs. bourbon ratio in the office.
