Interested in an innovative, diverse and progressive work environment? Want the opportunity to make a positive impact on real world problems using cutting edge technologies in a collaborative, dynamic, team-driven culture? If you can stay positive under pressure, if you can see possibilities when others see dead-ends, if you can laugh easily and support the team like family - then IST Research may be the company you've been looking for. We're growing, we're hiring and we're looking for passionate people that are hungry, humble and smart who want to make a difference in the world.

IST Research creates technology to address human security challenges. We built the Pulse Platform to address some of the most urgent human security issues faced by the world’s vulnerable populations, specifically transnational crime and global extremism. Our Pulse Platform is used to engage with populations around the world to provide insight into their thinking and engaging them in a two-way conversation. Pulse also has the added capability of scraping open data across the surface, deep, and dark web to provide a robust view of the Information Environment in which one is operating.

We’re seeking a talented, experienced Android Developer to join our team. You will help to continue building & improving our proprietary technology product – PULSE. We’re looking for an Android Subject Matter expert, ideally someone that can manipulate the OS and Kernel, not only build applications. A great candidate will enable the full engineering team to build on the system and provide expertise to the organization. An ability to automate mobile applications is also highly desirable. We’re an Agile shop and very collaborative, which means everyone pitches in when and where it’s needed; you’ll have the opportunity to develop secondary areas of expertise, such as QA/QE, Technical Operations, or Data Analytics. In regards to the development aspect of the position, the desired skills are as follows:

Must have:

Android OS and Kernel development skills

Experience building custom Android ROMs

Cellular/Telecom institutional knowledge

Nice to have:

Automated Mobile Application (ie Appium, etc) testing experience

Security clearance or ability to obtain one



To keep things concise, our engineers get to use the latest, cutting edge technology (i.e. ElasticSearch, Redis, AWS Neptune, AWS Lambda and more) to enable Pulse to connect with those who are in ‘disconnected’ environments. If this piques your interest, contact us and let’s discuss further.

We’re also a remote friendly company, so we’re open to considering someone from anywhere within the US. Since much of our work is US government sponsored, we can only consider US citizens or green card holders.

IST Research has been recognized by Inc. Magazine as one of the Fastest Growing Companies 3 years in a row -
