Southeast USA including: Texas (Austin and San Antonio), Virginia (Arlington and Dulles), Alabama (Huntsville), Florida (beach east of Melbourne), South Carolina (Greenville), Maryland (Annapolis Junction), and possibly others, all ONSITE. Citizenship is a job requirement.

We do emulators, JIT, hypervisors, stuff like valgrind, debuggers, manual disassembly, binary static analysis, parsers, and assembly. We write our own low-level tools, frequently in C99 to run on Linux. We also use IDA Pro, qemu, Simics, JTAG debuggers, gdb, Coverity, KlocWork, LLVM, and so on. Easily transferable skills include those related to compilers, kernel drivers, embedded RTOSes, vectorizing, firmware, VxWorks BSP development, symbolic execution, boot loaders, software verification, concolic testing, abstract interpretation, satisfiability (SAT, SMT) solvers, and decompilers. We work with more than a dozen architectures including PowerPC/ppc/POWER, MIPS, ARMv8/Thumb2/AArch64, x86-64/x64/Intel, DSPs, and microcontrollers. We hire from no-degree to PhD. Common degrees include Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Mathematics.

We don't normally work overtime, and we get paid more if we do. We're never expected to take work home or be on call. Because of the citizenship requirement, there is no chance that the work will be outsourced. Flex-time is fairly extreme; some do randomish hours.

Hint: pick Arlington for a car-free life. Pick Florida to live in a place with no state income tax, a stand-your-ground law, almost no crime, almost no traffic or commute, and houses that commonly go for $100,000 to $400,000.

You can contact me at users.sf.net, with account name albert.




Is a stand-your-ground law a perk that you'd advertise? Interesting job description though.


Some people might love a place with a different sort of attitude from SF/NYC, so I point that out. Others (you?) will be horrified. They can choose a more-familiar style of place: Arlington or Austin or Maryland. We have options.


Florida is hardly a state with almost no crime; on a per capita basis it ranks well within the top ten, usually close to #5. Miami, Jacksonville, St. Petersburg, and Tampa all have higher violent crime per capita than, for instance, New York, Seattle, Portland, and San Jose.

Right, but Melbourne isn't anything like Miami.


Indeed, I was responding to your "pick Florida" by citing statewide statistics. But Melbourne is, itself, significantly worse than average nationwide, and in fact higher than the Florida state average.

What's the company? I'd guess Lockheed based on the locations and work topics listed.


That's Raytheon.


Not quite sure how to contact you... users.sf.net leads to sourceforge.net/project/users which is a 404 page.


It's an email address, not a web page. Send email to albert.


> Citizenship is a job requirement.

You're violating federal labor law. Specifically, the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), 8 U.S.C. § 1324b.

"Employers may not treat individuals differently based on citizenship or immigration status. U.S. citizens, recent permanent residents, temporary residents, asylees and refugees are protected from citizenship status discrimination."

Friendly intro: https://www.justice.gov/crt/types-discrimination

If anyone applies for this job and is denied based on citizenship status, here's where to file a charge: https://www.justice.gov/crt/filing-charge


Perhaps you should understand the law before you post snarky comments accusing people of breaking the law. Here are the relevant exceptions to the law, from the source:

"(A) a person or other entity that employs three or fewer employees,

(B) a person’s or entity’s discrimination because of an individual’s national origin if the discrimination with respect to that person or entity and that individual is covered under section 703 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 [42 U.S.C. 2000e–2], or

(C) discrimination because of citizenship status which is otherwise required in order to comply with law, regulation, or executive order, or required by Federal, State, or local government contract, or which the Attorney General determines to be essential for an employer to do business with an agency or department of the Federal, State, or local government."

Nope. We qualify for an exemption and in fact are required to require citizenship. You can "file a charge" and have about the same luck you'd get over being declined a job working on orbital rockets, stealth fighters, nukes, submarine propellers, etc.

Even HN darling SpaceX requires US citizenship.

The fact that the USA has a law which ensures easy foreign access to American trade secrets is... exactly backwards. In any case, it doesn't apply.


For almost all jobs at SpaceX, only permanent residency (i.e., a green card) is required, because that's what ITAR and EAR require.

But, yes, of course companies have no choice but to exclude non-citizens from jobs that require a security clearance, because getting a clearance requires citizenship.


Good luck with that. It's working for Raytheon with a clearance.

> (C) discrimination because of citizenship status which is otherwise required in order to comply with law, regulation, or executive order, or required by Federal, State, or local government contract, or which the Attorney General determines to be essential for an employer to do business with an agency or department of the Federal, State, or local government.


Based on the locations + description I suspect this is for Military/IC-related jobs. Those tend to require citizenship...


it could be that the job needs a security clearance, which effectively makes citizenship a requirement
