Who: A Department of Defense (DoD) field activity that has been operating since 1997. Small and engineer centric. ~90% are engineer/scientist.
What: Provide solutions to other US Government agencies and allies. Some tasks are engineering brand-new products and some tasks are re-engineering devices to keep legacy systems running. We do not compete with private industry but regularly work side-by-side with industry to get stuff done. We also have the only semiconductor foundry still operational within the federal government.
Why: US Government agencies sometimes want products built that are so technologically risky or low-volume that private industry does not want to do them. We fill the gap.
Where: Sacramento, CA -- California's fourth largest metro area. Home to two major state universities (CSU-Sacramento and UC-Davis). The farm-to-fork, and regular, capital of California.
Benefits: We are federal employees and receive federal benefits (google "opm benefits" for more info). Time off starts at 36 days/year (13 vacation + 13 sick + 10 federal holidays) and grows to 49 days/year over time (26 + 13 + 10). We have flexible schedules and most of us work a "9-to-5.” Hiring is for GS-13 engineers (google “gs pay scale 2023” and look at the Sacramento locality).
Interview: Must be a US citizen. Must be able to achieve and maintain a security clearance.
