Role overview

About SimSpace:

Do you enjoy tackling technical challenges on a daily basis, and want your work to impact a critical part of our society? Do you want to shape the future of cybersecurity training against malicious cyber criminals and foreign actors? SimSpace is seeking data scientists with strong software engineering experience for full-time positions in our Data Science / Special Projects Directorate to help innovate and prototype new systems and capabilities. No prior cybersecurity knowledge required.

SimSpace is seriously disrupting the status quo for Virtual Cyber Security Ranges. By making complex and laborious network environments simple, and providing adversary attack campaigns, training, and assessment tools, organizations can better understand their risk and improve through practice and experimentation. We are a fast moving company that needs your talent and determination on our team. We are protective of our company culture, and we're still small, so it's a great time to join us. We're a startup that must ship.

Special Projects is seeking Data Scientists with strong computer science skills to architect and improve existing develop new AI/ML enhanced systems and improve existing systems to support directorate initiatives, to fully test these systems, and to integrate and deploy those systems into the broader SimSpace software ecosystem. The focus of the Directorate is to innovate and prototype new capabilities that advance SimSpace's core activities, and we are searching for candidates that can help incorporate machine learning, data science, and analytics to significantly enhance capabilities in several application areas. Several of our current major initiatives include developing AI-enhanced attack agents and AI-enhanced defensive agents to deploy on our cyber ranges to engage customer cyber operators during assessments and training activities. Our defensive agents can not only emulate cyber defensive operator behaviors by manipulating commercial and open source cyber security tools in the Cyber Range environment, but can also implement effective incident response workflows that will reject adversary advances and reverse adversary progress. We are working on similar projects in offensive and business user emulation and automation. Machine learning will be crucial to provide enhanced decision support. Additional projects involve cyber security assessment event automation, improving assessment analysis and scoring, enhancing existing user emulation tools, developing coordination mechanisms and related intelligence for adversarial agents that would execute attacks, harnessing SimSpace attack tools, and designing new approaches to accelerate scaling. Candidates should possess strong programming skills and have a background that includes academic coursework and project experience that demonstrate aptitude and enthusiasm for problem solving, computer science, machine learning, data science, statistics, and related topics.

Our Special Projects team is a combination of remote developers and local developers at our Boston headquarters. Working remotely is an option for experienced engineers located in the US and Canada who have successful experience with working remotely. We bring our entire team together for quarterly off-sites to facilitate team bonding. For less experienced engineers or those who have not worked remotely before, we have a strong preference for the Boston area to facilitate mentoring and interaction with more experienced staff. Please apply even if you are unsure if you would qualify for remote work, and we will review your application. 

You will:

  • Design and develop new AI/ML capabilities that advance SimSpace's core activities
  • Integrate these capabilities into the broader company software ecosystem
  • Upgrade and maintain these systems
  • Interact with provided cyber tools and other component services
  • Work closely with a passionate team of data scientists and software developers

You are a good fit if you have:

  • At least 3 years of professional data science / software engineering experience or a PhD in a relevant topic
  • Demonstrated enthusiasm and aptitude for software architecture, design, agile development, test suites, and system maintenance
  • A strong sense of pride in crafting well-tested and well-designed code that is delivered on-time

Your skills:

  • Producing high quality software that is well-written, well-instrumented, tested thoroughly, and securely designed and implemented
  • Fluent in Data Science, ML, AI, and related topics and experienced with common libraries and tools (Tensor Flow, Keras, PyTorch, Pandas, Numpy, SciPy, Matplotlib, Seaborn, Sckit Learn, StatsModels,NLTK, Gensim, Spacy, Bokeh, Keras-RL, ...)
  • Experienced with use of high performance computing to accelerate intensive tasks. 
  • Fluent in Python, UML, git, GitLab/GitHub, container systems, databases, CI/CD, multithreading/multiprocessing, messaging, and modern team software development and testing tools and best practices
  • Experience with reinforcement learning Python libraries (TF-Agents, RLlib, pyqlearning) or computer hardware is a plus 
  • Strong oral and written communication skills
  • A problem-solver that is highly self-motivated, accepting of others' opinions, and can work effectively in a team

Benefits:

  • Competitive salary and benefits (medical, dental, vision)
  • Equity in the company
  • Flexible hours, provided you overlap the main part of the day (EST) to interact with others
  • One day a week telecommute -- we value in-person interaction

In compliance with federal law, all persons hired will be required to verify identity and eligibility to work in the United States and to complete the required employment eligibility verification document form upon hire.
