Job Description

This position requires the eligibility to obtain a security clearance. Except in rare circumstances, only U.S. citizens are eligible for a security clearance.

Raytheon BBN Technologies (BBN) is the research company behind many revolutionary advances that we take for granted today. BBN is where email was invented and the first routers were implemented. Today, BBN's scientists and engineers are working to advance the state-of-the-art on topics ranging from machine language translation to quantum cryptography. BBN offers the opportunity to perform exciting and revolutionary research and engineering that solves important problems in a collaborative environment. BBN fosters an exceptional work environment with knowledgeable co-workers and offers performance-based bonus incentives and retirement contributions.

Located in Middletown, RI (Newport, RI), our Information Exploitation group is seeking talented software engineers and scientists interested in designing, prototyping, developing, and deploying advanced systems and algorithms using Data Science and Analytics, Semantic Web Technologies, and Machine Reasoning and Machine Learning to solve challenging DoD and IC problems. BBN fosters an exceptional work environment with knowledgeable co-workers, excellent performance-based bonus incentives, and generous retirement contributions. Our ideal candidate will have experience in machine reasoning, semantic web technologies, data analytics, or artificial intelligence technologies and will have strong Java development experience.

• Researching and publishing novel machine reasoning and learning algorithms and solutions to complex, open-ended intelligence problems.
• Developing and analyzing complex data models and ontologies;
• Designing algorithms to reason about causal networks in noisy, incomplete, multi-modal data;
• Creating interactive systems for organizing real-world data into competing explanations mixing deterministic and probabilistic reasoning and spatio-temporal analysis;
• Designing analytics algorithms for co-reference/entity resolution, complex event processing, similarity-based search, and others;
• Optimizing software for knowledge representation, storage, and query systems for high performance.
• Developing REST-ful analytic and management services as part of large-scale web applications

Required Education and Experience:
• BS in Computer Science or equivalent discipline and 4 years of experience; or MS in Computer Science or equivalent discipline and 2 years of experience; or PhD in Computer Science or equivalent discipline

Desired Skills and Education:
• 2-3 years of related research experience in one of the technical areas mentioned above
• New PhD graduates are strongly encouraged to apply
• Experience with logic programming (XSB Prolog or Flora-2) or other rule-based systems for knowledge representation and reasoning
• Research or development experience with probabilistic reasoning, data representation, or machine learning
• Research or development experience with Big Data, Semantic Graphs, or Graph Databases
• Experience gathering requirements and implementing large software systems with minimal guidance
• Working knowledge and/or hands-on experience with Semantic Web technologies (RDF/OWL/SPARQL)
• Experience with Web application development
• An active US Government security clearance is highly desired
