Technical professionals at the National Security Agency are focused on two equally important missions: charging forward to collect foreign signals or standing firm to prevent adversaries from advancing on us. Both are vital to winning a struggle that’s much more than a game.
The National Security Agency (NSA) is a world leader in signals intelligence. The agency carries out some of the nation’s most important and sensitive intelligence activities to secure information superiority for America and its allies.
NSA has two primary missions: The information assurance mission is the defense. It protects U.S. interests by preventing foreign adversaries from gaining access to U.S. information systems.
The signals intelligence mission is the offense, collecting foreign signals and producing intelligence to give U.S. policy makers and warfighters the decision advantage. The agency also enables network warfare operations to defeat terrorists and their organizations at home and abroad, consistent with U.S. laws and the protection of privacy and civil liberties.
At the nation’s top cryptologic organization, NSA employs the best and the brightest, who use their intelligence to solve some of the nation’s most difficult challenges. NSA is the world leader in many technology fields and conducts one of the U.S. government’s leading research and development programs.
NSA is now hiring individuals in the following fields:
- Computer/Electrical Engineering
- Computer Science
- Information Assurance
- Foreign Language
- Intelligence Analysis
