ObjectSecurity is a small company in downtown San Diego (we work out of a coworking space). We have traditionally focused on cybersecurity but have branched out into data analytics and AI in recent years. Our award-winning, patented security product is OpenPMF, which uses cool models and algorithms to make it easier to author and maintain fine-grained, dynamic access control policies.
We are doing exciting other product developments, including a supply chain risks analysis product which takes an SAP data dump and turns it into a graph DB, and then runs analytics over it to identify risks. Another cool project is an “AI hacker” development, which uses AI to simulate a hacker.
ObjectSecurity is a spin-off SME of the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory. It was founded into transfer the results of academic research to consulting and industrial research and development, and to bundle the abilities of several experienced scientists, consultants, programmers and security technology specialists. ObjectSecurity is fully employee-owned.
We are looking for hands-on interns around AI, graph analytics, and general software engineering. We can also involve someone with cybersecurity skills but only if they are also hands-on developers.
Our contracts are with the DoD, so if someone is not a citizen, we can likely still involve them but a bit more “removed” from the customer projects (esp. from the data which we process).
We are a very technical company – for example I’m the CEO but have a PhD and Master’s in cybersecurity, and I am the technical manager of these projects.
(If you have hands-on experience with military IT systems, e.g. (1) military embedded (microelectronics) systems diagnostics, vulnerability assessment, repair etc., and/or (2) military predictive or condition-based maintenance systems etc., then there are specific projects we can involve you. Otherwise we have projects of a more generic nature.)
Please describe in your cover letter your Python experience and any embedded system, hardware or microelectronics experience you may have, as well as any code or binary analysis you have done or are aware of. Please include any other specific applicable experience you feel you have for this role.
By working directly on software engineering projects hands-on in embedded systems, hardware and/or microelectronics, interns will gain valuable experience in the software engineering field and improve upon their computer science skills as evidenced through their weekly projects.
