Government customers turn to Raytheon BBN Technologies for solutions that help make us safe and secure; business customers rely on us for breakthrough thinking that helps them bring new innovations to market and gives them a competitive edge.
What we believe
Hiring great minds will attract the most challenging projects, which, in turn, will attract more great people.
Covering new ground, and solving previously unsolved technological problems.
Making a difference. Each Raytheon BBN Technologies breakthrough can have a massive impact on the way we live -- a powerful motivator for both customers and employees.
Trying. We see and make connections between technologies and ideas that others do not or cannot.
Development over research. What we make, works. Our goal is to solve problems by creating real-world, working solutions for both government and business organizations.
Drawing from a range of disciplines - voice, networking, encryption, security, acoustics, physics, signal processing - to collaborate and make new connections.
Treating customers as collaborators and partners. We listen, we give straight answers, and we never forget that we are a service business.
Open Doors - We're not big on hierarchy and we really like collaboration. Talk to anyone, all the way from new hire to President.
Recreation Facilities - a workout room with weight, rowing machines, foosball and lockers is open all day, every day at Cambridge headquarters.
Raytheon BBN Technologies Café - The food in Cambridge is too good to call it a cafeteria, plus how often do you see a baby grand in a cafeteria?
Connections - Whether it's basketball or boardgames that interest you, Raytheon BBN Technologies makes it easy to connect to other staff who share your interest and provides finanical support for employee teams and events.
Straight Talk - Every couple of months, Raytheon BBN Technologies President Ed Campbell and other members of the executive team invite staff to an informal lunch to chat informally about whatever is on their minds.
Summer Cookouts - Once a week, lunch in Cambridge turns into a barbecue, with picnic tables under the trees.
Growth - Mentoring program, professional development programs, and the chance to rotate into different departments assure that your work is always new and interesting.
