ObjectSecurity is a highly innovative cybersecurity company headquartered in San Diego, CA. We focus on the intersection between cybersecurity, AI/ML, supply chain risk analysis, and ICS/OT. We have several Phase II SBIRs that have the potential to become transformative technology solutions. When you become part of our team, your career opportunities are endless. Join us on our growth trajectory.
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.
This position offers the opportunity to apply data science to cybersecurity related challenges, incl. (just to name a few) to secure ML pipelines during development, to analyze binaries for vulnerabilities using ML, to detect anomalies on devices/PCBs (using advanced computer vision ML), to analyze anomalies in supply chain data graphs, and more. We are tasked by the Navy, Air Force, DHS and others to solve significant cybersecurity challenges.
This job is your opportunity to work with a world-class team of scientists, engineers, and security experts, turning AI into innovative, transformative technology products that solve the most pressing issues our nation currently faces.
