We’re not your typical defense contractors.

Yes, our team is stacked with military-grade experts and protecting OT platforms against the cyberattack lifecycle is challenging work for our developers and security experts, but we balance that intensity with a casual work environment (read: hoodies and Nando Peri-Peri working lunches), mission-driven business goals, and flexible working hours.
