Dynetics, a wholly owned subsidiary of Leidos, is seeking a talented FPGA and Microcontroller Hacker to join a diverse, highly skilled team to create unique solutions for complex problems in security engineering and cyber domains. With offices across the United States engaging in the defense, space, cyber and commercial fields, Dynetics provides cost-effective intelligence, engineering, scientific and IT solutions.
The FPGA and Microcontroller Hacker will use commercial and custom methods to retrieve FPGA and microcontroller firmware, reverse-engineer FPGA bitstreams and configuration data, disassemble microcontroller binaries, and decompile C programs. This work includes developing custom hardware techniques, as well as custom software to aid and automate the reverse-engineering of various types of software and firmware binaries. This position will have duty for the scrutiny of tracking, guidance, and counter-countermeasure algorithms contained within missile and radar systems. The goal of this exploration will be to describe the threat capabilities and vulnerabilities against the U.S. systems that oppose it. Test benches will be developed to verify the study and further characterize the signal processing chain. Weapon system instrumentation and testing will be promoted for data collection purposes. Once study is complete, efforts will continue towards developing countermeasures for the threat system in order to ensure its defeat in combat.
The candidate must be a resident of or be willing to relocate to the Huntsville, Alabama area.
The following knowledge is ideal:
Candidate must be a US Citizen and possess (and be able to maintain) a Final Top Secret/SSBI Clearance or meet the eligibility to obtain (and maintain) a Final Top Secret Clearance.
