Raytheon Technologies is a premier engineering company which provides technical solutions in software development and systems engineering that address security challenges and strengthen our customers. Raytheon hires industry-leading professionals, and we treat them like industry-leading professionals. We bring exceptional talent to an array of missions that includes computer network operations, vulnerabilities, characterization, information assurance, and emerging technologies to expand cybersecurity solutions. Raytheon Technologies engineers are developing advanced analytics helping transform analysis by making sense of the massive amounts of data that must be processed at break neck speed. Our Knowledge Management expertise includes utilizing semantic web technologies, storage, indexing, retrieval of structured/unstructured data, and social network analysis to extract and build graphic representations.

Position Description:

Vulnerability Researchers at Raytheon Technologies

analyze systems to understand how they work and how they behave when they break. Candidates must be able to actively debug software and troubleshoot issues with software crashes and programmatic flow and provide written reports, proof-of-concept code, prototypes, and hands-on demonstrations of reverse engineering and vulnerability analysis results.

All of our engineers write code, but many of our engineers spend as much time taking systems apart as building new ones. A typical day may involve studying disassembly or writing python to audit a piece of C++ code.

Required Skills:

  • Experience programming in Assembly, C, C#, C++, Perl, or Python for a production environment.

  • Participate in reverse engineering and vulnerability research of hardware components, software applications, and operating systems to determine functionality, code structure, and circuit design for the use in the discovery of initial access capabilities.

  • Ability to perform source code analysis in an effort to discover software flaws, and provide/author documentation on the impact and severity of the flaw.

  • Participate in technical presentations on assigned projects.

Desired Skills:

  • Understanding of OS Internals (any major OS)

  • Experience reading or writing assembly (x86, x64, ARM, PPC, MIPS, SPARC, 68k, or others)

  • Experience developing embedded systems

  • Understanding of network protocols (TCP/IP stacks, wire-level protocols, RF communications, BGP, routing protocols, or others).

  • Understanding of exploit mitigations such as DEP and ASLR

  • Experience using reverse engineering tools such as IDA Pro, HexRays, or objdump

  • Experience using debuggers such as gdb, WinDbg, OllyDbg

  • Experience with modern C++ development, such as RAII, C++11 and C++14.
