Legato, LLC recruiters ( would love to speak with you regarding the following position: Mobile Security Researcher in Android or Apple iOS in  Laurel, MD.
Security Clearance Required: TS/SCI w/ Polygraph
What You Will Do:
This is a project focused on R&D and prototyping of new CNO capabilities for the Maryland customer. The work involves Vulnerability Research, Exploit Development, CNO tool development and enhancement, and infrastructure support (DevOps) for access operations. Platforms involved include iOS, Android, MacOS, Linux, Windows, and other environments. This is some of the most impactful work in the Intelligence Community, with the new capabilities developed by this team getting rapidly deployed and into the hands of users. One of the best things about this project is the customer. They give Engineers huge latitude in choosing programming languages and technologies, and they encourage exploration of new tech. The focus here is RESULTS, not which methods are followed to achieve them, so creativity and flexibility are part of the culture. There is almost no distinction here between blue-badgers and green-badgers: the team is nicely integrated, the people are nice and highly competent, and the Branch and Section Leads do an excellent job of shielding the engineers from any organizational politics. The customer also understands that Engineers are human beings that each have unique needs. Flexibility for working hours is common: work hours are generally whatever you like between 6am and 6pm, with some people working fewer than 5 days a week, and others regularly flexing their time across multiple weeks.
You will be joining an existing fast paced team focused on Security Research for Mobile technologies. The candidate needs to be experienced with Mobile systems and have experience and recent exposure to the latest security implementations for Mobile platforms.  The candidate will need depth of understanding with current security research and open-source security flaws (CVEs).  The candidate will support the research and development on Mobile platforms, providing crisp documentation that is easy to understand for our customers.
Our minimum requirements for this role:
  • Experience researching and developing in a mobile environment (e.g.; Android, Apple) and understand the underlying OS Internals
  • Experience with Python and C development
  • Exposure to Mobile development environments and debugging tools (XCode, ADB, etc.).
  • Experience reading and writing Assembly
  • Demonstrated ability to self-drive research tasking
  • Experience with remote debugging (ADB, GDB, etc.)
  • Minimum of six (6) years’ experience in programs and contracts of similar scope, type and complexity is required
