Vaccination Notice:

Please be aware that you are applying for a position to work as a federal contractor. As such, Cipher Tech will require, and your employment will be subject to, such vaccinations as are required by federal, state, and local law requirements.


At Cipher Tech Solutions, Inc. (Cipher Tech), we take great pride in supporting some of the most mission critical work in the Department of Defense and the Intelligence Community. The majority of our company is comprised of extremely talented engineers and developers who write production tools in direct support of one of two missions: digital forensics and malware reverse engineering.

Digital forensics is the practice of extracting and processing evidence from computers, phones, tablets, cameras, flash-drives, and just about any other form of digital media. The results of our work are then used to support federal and military law enforcement, counterintelligence, and counter-terrorist activities.

Malware reverse engineering is the practice of analyzing, oftentimes extremely advanced, malicious code. The goal of a reverse engineer is to understand how the malicious code works and determine facts such as: how did it infect the victim's computer, what kind of information it is seeking to steal, how is it communicating with the author (actor), and who that actor might be working for.

Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion

Cipher Tech is an Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action Employer. We value diversity and inclusion, not only for the sake of compliance, but also because diversity of thought drives progress and improves performance. All hiring and employment decisions are made on the basis of business requirements, performance, and merit-with no regard to race, color, religion, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, national origin, or other protected status.


Be aware that you are applying for a job that requires a U.S. Government Security Clearance.

If you do not already hold a US government security clearance, we do have the ability to sponsor you for one, however be advised that this can be several months long, or a multi-year process.

The U.S. government  will not issue security clearances to current or recent users of illegal drugs. On your application to us, you must acknowledge that you have not engaged in any illegal drug use within the past twelve months (illegal drug use includes, but is not limited to, the use of illegal substances, the misuse of prescriptions, the misuse of over-the-counter substances,  and the use of medical or recreational marijuana that may be deemed legal at the state level but is still considered illegal by the federal government).
