When you think of Northern Virginia, you might picture the Potomac River, scenic hiking, and monuments. Do you think of engineers? You should, because Northern Virginia has a large concentration of cutting-edge technology firms and a wide array of tech professionals that keep everything from our federal government to the majority of internet traffic running.
It’s also where Booz Allen’s Herndon and Arlington engineering labs are located. Here’s what our employees say about what makes this area great:
1. Intellectually Captivating
The Northern Virginia engineering team works with clients who are the top institutions for robotics research and development. There are always new and exciting challenges that could include rapid prototyping work, prototyping unmanned systems for air, ground, and marine use, robotics software design and development, and software exploitation mitigation.
2. Engineering & Consulting Mix
This team provides a highly complementary mix of engineering and consulting services. They work with defense and intelligence agencies including the Air Force Research Lab and Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, doing everything from developing and pitching new research programs to writing code and cutting metal.
Unconventional thinking is welcome. These employees are given the freedom to find new business, lead the capture of it, and execute it. Building on the ideal that diverse minds bring the best solutions, our technologists in Northern Virginia are dynamic, diverse, and enjoy building business opportunities.
4. Learning Opportunities
You don’t have to go back to school to continue learning. The very nature of the work our employees perform gives them opportunities to learn new skills, including those in the technical, programmatic, and communication realm. Specialized work can include virtual reality for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), UAV flight simulation, UAV research and development, and unmanned vehicle threat modeling and mitigation.
5. Team Talent
Need a certain type of expert? Chances are someone with that pedigree works at one of our Northern Virginia labs. Our electrical, mechanical, and software engineers, cybersecurity experts, robotics experts, systems developers and more, work collaboratively to help deliver the best solutions to our clients’ most complex problems.
