The Security Department at IBM's Thomas J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, NY, is seeking Senior Software Engineers to join us in tackling the new IBM Research's Security Research Agenda.
The mission of the Security Department is to conduct fundamental and applied research in Security, Privacy and Cryptography. We focus on building new and innovative security technologies in research areas such as Cryptography, Cybersecurity Analytics, Machine Learning for Security (e.g. Deep Learning), Malware Analysis, Natural Language Processing (NLP) for Threat Intelligence, Graph Analytics for Security, Blockchain Security and Applications, Mobile and IoT Security, Information Security, Cloud Computing and Virtualization Security, SDN Security, Next Generation Security Architectures, Trusted Computing and Ethical Hacking. We value research skills, innovation, strong systems intuition, systems building experience and a strong desire to implement one's own ideas.
Candidates must have a Master's Degree in Computer Science or closely-related field. Five years experience with a record of innovation and impact in some area of Computer Security is preferred. Candidate should have effective communication skills in both technical and customer situations. Candidate should also be able to define new research directions, drive a project from exploratory thinking to the development of a practical solution or service, and have impact across our company or the entire industry. Employees in this role use a variety of formal and informal requirement/design artifacts to architect, design, prototype and implement software components and systems to meet the indicated requirements. They can flexibly adapt to rapidly changing client or project requirements inherent in a research project, but are also able to integrate as necessary into formal products and services. They also ensure that the implemented components are tested and ready to be integrated into the project systems and proofs of concept. Software Engineering Researchers are expected to be agile in their development methodology, while also able to solve difficult problems, explore new domains, and work well across world-wide teams. The IBM Research Division conducts scientific research and develops technologies and processes for use with IBM products and customer applications. IBM Research has produced leading contributions to the technology underlying IBM's product portfolio, as well as to the world of science and the entire IT industry.
