Working at MITRE

At MITRE, our reputation relies on providing technically sound, objective guidance to our government partners. It's not about increasing the bottom line. It's about helping our nation move forward. And it's been that way for more than 60 years.

Through our FFRDCs, we've advanced the state of the art in such critical areas as GPS, air traffic control, mobile technologies, cybersecurity, and healthcare IT—to name just a few. We're proud of this record of teamwork and accomplishment.

The Ingredients for Success

So what makes us the home of so many achievements? Put simply, it's our people.

We start with a diverse group of highly educated professionals who combine first-rate technical and organizational know-how with an enthusiasm for serving in the public interest. Then we mix in a strategic understanding of our sponsors' needs. Finally, we provide an environment that supports wide-ranging thinking with a practical bent.

The result? Affordable, effective solutions that help the government meet its most complex challenges.
