So I was scrolling through job listings online and I cam across one that starts
“Senior Cryptography Engineer:
Senior level professional needed for hands on encoding/decoding of data for high security customer.Must have 8+ years experience in cryptology and data security. DOD clearance is a plus. EE and/or MA in related degree is also a plus. Experience is specific to the the creation of mathematical algorithms which decode documentation & IS access…”
and I was thinking to myself that I’d like to have whoever gets this job as a friend. Someone who has been a professional in cryptography and data security longer than I’ve been out of High School. Probably with DOD clearance. Who is this person? Why are they living in Scottsdale? Better yet, why are you looking for work? What top-secret government org is downsizing?
I wonder how many applicants they’ll get & interview. Who thinks I should apply, even though I have just about none of the qualifications?
