Software Engineer, Cybersecurity (apply online)
Software engineers at the Software & Application Innovation Lab (SAIL) contribute to a variety of cutting-edge computational and data-driven research efforts while developing their skills in the latest technologies within a professional software engineering environment. The projects undertaken by SAIL software engineers have tangible and direct impacts on academic research, public service, and industry partners in healthcare, finance, and technology.
As a cybersecurity expert, you will work within an agile team building prototypes and production-quality open source libraries, applications, and systems that provide stronger security benefits in domains such as trustworthy distributed computing (blockchains and secure multi-party computation), software-defined networking/clouds, and systems security at the OS, firmware, and hardware layers. This role provides the flexibility to identify and prioritize efforts and to shape the long-term vision of our research agenda. In addition to working with other professional software engineers, you have the opportunity to collaborate with researchers at Boston University and beyond who are nationally respected as leaders in their corresponding areas of research. Additionally, we expect you to take advantage of opportunities to develop new skills in almost every project and enjoy tackling diverse challenges in a flexible work environment, and to mentor software engineer interns.
SAIL is housed within the Hariri Institute for Computing, which catalyzes, enables, and supports interdisciplinary research efforts across Boston University.
