In 2006, Cipher Tech Solutions, Inc. (Cipher Tech) started within a dorm room at Northeastern University. Today, the company, led by two Northeastern University engineering graduates, is a leader in providing mission critical software solutions to the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Intelligence Community (IC). In direct support of these customers and their missions, Cipher Tech employees can expect to obtain a US Government security clearance.
At Cipher Tech, we build software that supports national security interests, primarily in the domains of cyber security, digital forensics, and malware reverse engineering. Our software is actively used to understand and defend against cyber espionage. In these projects, we use a wide variety of standard technologies, such as Java and .NET, as well as exciting new technologies including Neo4j, mongoDB, and JavaFx.
Cipher Tech's Boston office fosters a healthy, tight-knit team, with a casual work environment and relaxed dress code. COOP students will be treated primarily as peers and will work on production code across one or more projects. Cipher Tech also provides mentoring opportunities for less experienced programmers who show strong potential.
