[Blog] Machine Learning in Cybersecurity by Eliezer Kanal
Assured software—functioning as intended and free of vulnerabilities—is critical to the system capabilities that U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), civilian government, and industry organizations need to achieve their missions.
Software-enabled systems deliver the rich system functionality and network connectivity that can assure mission readiness, boost productivity, spur innovation, and provide a competitive edge. The complexity and interconnectness of those systems, however, expose organizations to heightened risk from disruptive, damaging events and cyber attacks.
For over three decades, the Software Engineering Institute (SEI) has been helping government and industry organizations to acquire, develop, operate, and sustain software systems that are innovative, affordable, enduring, and trustworthy. We serve the nation as a Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and based at Carnegie Mellon University, a global research university annually rated among the best for its programs in computer science and engineering.
Delivering value across a spectrum from R&D to technology adoption
We research software and cybersecurity problems of considerable complexity, create and test innovative technologies, and transition maturing solutions to widespread use. Using tools, technologies, and practices developed or matured by the SEI, the DoD and other government agencies can meet mission goals through improvements that include
We also work with commercial organizations that are interested in gaining a strategic advantage by maturing or applying improved software engineering and cybersecurity technology.
Applying our organizational values every day
We strive to live out our core values of excellence, integrity, impact, teamwork, and urgency in all of our interactions, inside the organization and with our customers and collaboration partners.
The Software Engineering Institute (SEI) is a not-for-profit Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) at Carnegie Mellon University, specifically established by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) to focus on software and cybersecurity.
As an FFRDC, the SEI fills voids where in-house and private sector research and development centers are unable to meet DoD core technology needs. For government and industry, the SEI is an objective, unbiased, honest broker that
We help government and industry organizations develop software-reliant systems that are more affordable, more agile, more reliable, and more secure. Through the strength of our workforce and our focused research, we provide immediate and long-term integrated solutions.
Pursue your passion and work alongside world-recognized leaders in the field of software engineering. Our staff works with the highest levels of U.S. government and industry to secure the nation's critical infrastructure, improve mission-critical systems, and advance the state of the art.

I have been working at Software Engineering Institute full-time (More than 5 years)
Valuable Mission, Stability, CMU Benefits
Not as many perks as newer companies
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Software Engineering Institute (Pittsburgh, PA).
Multiple interviews with various different department managers. Clearly assessing your compatibility with the SEI. Presentation to selected technical personnel. Lunch with a same level MTS who shares their experience with the SEI.
