The Advanced Analytics Team applies expertise in machine learning, large-scale computational architectures, data visualization, and simulation to solve hard research challenges in high impact areas including cybersecurity, biological systems, and distributed sensor platforms. We’ve built automated malware detection systems, deep learning models that can semantically label source code, prototypes to visualize graphs with millions of nodes, and a distributed framework that can process and store sensor network streams on the scale of 100 MB/s. Our team values creativity, initiative, collaboration, and diversity. We strive for a fun and collegial atmosphere that encourages intellectual crosspollination and professional growth. In short, we’re passionate about empowering our customer’s missions and enjoy working together at the leading edge of technology


As a Lead Research Engineer at Two Six Labs, you will build models of DDoS attacks and novel, cloud-based cyber defenses in a discrete-event network simulator. You will leverage game theory to derive optimal strategies for deploying dynamic defenses. You will lead a small team of researchers to achieve customer objectives and share results with a broader community.
