Development Program (C2DP) - Cryptanalytic Computer Scientist - Entry/Mid-Level

The National Security Agency
Fort Meade, MD 20755
NSA is in search of Computer Science professionals to solve complex problems, test innovative approaches and research new solutions to storing, manipulating, and presenting information. We are looking for you to apply your computer science expertise to projects that seek to create new standards for the transformation of information. If you want to develop technologies and tools and be a part of cutting edge innovations ' join our team of experts! Help protect national security interests as part of the world's most advanced team of computer science professionals!",

The professionals at the National Security Agency (NSA) have one common goal: to protect our nation. The mission requires a strong offense and a steadfast defense. The offense collects, processes and disseminates intelligence information derived from foreign signals for intelligence and counterintelligence purposes. The defense prevents adversaries from gaining access to sensitive classified national security information.

The need to maintain our core Computer Science group is vital to provide the technical capabilities necessary to successfully execute NSA's mission. The increased complexity of supporting NSA's mission requires world class researchers, programmers, and developers who operate in teams in areas such as software engineering, information technology infrastructure, high performance computing, data science, architectures, computer security, and networking in order to design and develop advanced tools, techniques, and systems.

Description of Position

Cryptanalytic Computer Scientists employ the hybrid skill-set of advanced computer science, electrical engineering and mathematics to ensure solutions to the most difficult cryptanalytic problems and take full advantage of the NSA's software and hardware capabilities.

The NSA/CSS Cryptanalytic Computer Network Operations Development Program (C2DP) is a 3 year development program designed to produce professional level Cryptanalytic Computer Scientists through an intensive, structured program of formal training courses and diverse work assignments.

NSA's Computer Science field offers participation in a vast array of challenging projects, systems, networks and applications necessary to manipulate and analyze enormous volumes of data at staggering speeds. As a member of the C2DP, Cryptanalytic Computer Scientists solve challenging cryptanalytic, high-performance computing, and computer network operations problems of critical importance to protecting the nation's interests in cyberspace. Other responsibilities may include:

- using principles, techniques, procedures, and tools to architect and facilitate the development of hardware solutions
- applying software engineering principles to design and/or develop software applications
- developing methods and applications for tools to exploit and analyze computer systems and network vulnerabilities
- designing and optimizing algorithms, data structures, modeling, and analytics to solve real-world scientific problems
