Our missions are complex, long-lasting, far-reaching—and each one is unique. We’re constantly developing new mission-specific software. For designers, engineers, architects, and developers who like to test the limits, JPL is a constant source of new stimulating challenges.
JPL missions require real-time collaboration across many organizations, including JPL, the NASA Centers, vendors, and space agencies in partner nations. Ranked by ComputerWorld as one of Best Places to Work in IT, JPL offers the most fascinating IT challenges in a stimulating environment.
Cybersecurity is a challenge throughout our connected world, but JPL’s situation is particularly complex and important. We gather data from the far reaches of space and need to keep it protected. Our information is highly sensitive, and subject to security clearances through NASA and other government agencies, so it requires the special care of dedicated cybersecurity experts.
