Veterans can search for jobs using any of the three supported US military occupational speciality codes (MOS, AFSC, or NEC).
Mission-focused. Service-oriented. Teamwork. Integrity. All words that describe our nation's service members. At MITRE, we're guided by the same values—and we welcome and respect the technical expertise members of the armed forces bring to our mission: solving problems for a safter world. It's why veterans make up nearly 20% of our workforce.

“I started my intelligence career while serving in the Army in Hawaii as part of the advance team at Kunia, an underground facility in the pineapple fields. Having worked with our Great Power Competition initiative, I felt it was time to return to guiding projects that directly support the warfighters and their missions.”
Veteran Jim Houchens
Department Chief Engineer
"One thing I love about MITRE is having the flexibility not just to support one sponsor [of a federal R&D center] fully, but to support multiple sponsors, especially those with intersecting challenges. My colleagues are fantastic about cross-mission collaboration and information sharing."
Veteran Lara Suarez
Cyber Operations Engineer
“One aspect of the MITRE culture I’ve always appreciated is the commitment to working on the tough challenges. We tackle the hard problems, develop solutions, and then move on to the next hard problem.”
