Basic Information



Come to work in the summer of 2019! Exceptional opportunity with exceptional professionals. The Missile Defense Agency has one of the most complex and challenging missions in our nation's history - developing and fielding an intercontinental range of defensive systems to work as one robust ballistic missile defense system. To advance the mission, we recruit and hire Engineers, Scientists, professionals in the Information Technology, Contracts, Logistics Specialists, Human Resources, Financial Management, intelligence and program Management disciplines. Entry level opportunities at MDA are offered through the Missile Defense Career Development Program (MDCDP) - a three year, fully paid, development assignment that allows you to experience a variety of challenges being addressed on a daily basis. It is not your average career opportunity, but then, MDA is not your average government organization. Launch your career with the Missile Defense Agency. Recruiting cycle - Generally, we hire one "class" per year made up of professionals starting a career in engineering, contracts, mathematics, logistics and finance. We post here on Handshake and we make few on campus recruiting trips. We generally recruit in the fall (September/October/ November) and post our positions on USA Jobs in November/December. We have separate announcements for different disciplines. These will be open for only about 10 days. We review, and rate applicants over the holidays and invite to interview early in January. If you want to come to work in the summer of 2019, you need to apply to our announcements in the fall of 2018. We accept qualifying degrees conferred right up until the end of June 2019. If this is something that interest you, we want you on the team! Apply now!
