Mid-Level Software Engineer – Machine Learning (TS with Poly Required)

Top Secret with Polygraph
Posted 1 month ago

BigBear.ai is seeking a Software Engineer to take an existing adaptive cyber defense prototype and make it more applicable to mission and customer needs. The prototype is a software library consisting of several modules, including threat detection tools, a rudimentary autonomous reasoning system, and a GUI. The software prototype was designed by an off-site contractor who designed and tested the prototype on their internal data, as well as a publicly available data.

Written in python, the prototype makes use of open-source AI/ML libraries in order to autonomously create baselines of cyber activity and measure those baselines against activity of unknown provenance. Results from these tests will be fed into a rudimentary reasoning system in order to reason about the information and make higher level conclusions about the activity. There is a GUI which can interact with cybersecurity analysts through a chat window, so that end users need only supply information about data and the analytics they wish to run, which is translated by a rudimentary AI system to ingest the correct data, run the analytics and display results.

This position will support PCI, a BigBear.ai company.

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or related discipline from an accredited college or university is required; four (4) years of SWE experience on projects with similar software processes to those described in the pertinent delivery order may be substituted for a bachelor’s degree.
  • A minimum of fourteen (14) years’ experience as a software engineer in programs and contracts of similar scope, type, and complexity as the pertinent delivery order.
  • Experience in open source AI/ML libraries is required.


Active TS with Poly is required. Candidates without an active clearance will not be considered.
