At Noblis and Noblis ESI, we have excellent teams of smart, collaborative, proactive experts and professionals. We are actively seeking to identify personnel to join our team of talented professionals who possess the experience, vision, commitment, and integrity to successfully support the strategic goals of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) Office of Mission & Capability Support (MCS).


The recently passed Critical Infrastructure Bill HR 3684 (the Infrastructure and Investment Jobs Act) explicitly identifies five areas of federal investment, and funding from this bill bolsters ongoing efforts in these areas. Research and development programs to develop technology in these areas will be funded and directed by the DHS S&T. These areas include:

  • Special event risk assessments rating planning tools;
  • Electromagnetic pulse and geo-magnetic disturbance resilience capabilities;
  • Positioning, navigation, and timing capabilities;
  • Public safety and violence prevention to evaluate soft target security, including countering improvised explosive device events and protection of U.S. critical infrastructure; and
  • Research supporting security testing capabilities relating to telecommunications equipment, industrial control systems, and open source software.


New teammates will support these efforts, as well as augment our existing team working on rapidly developing technology in response to evolving threats.
