Job Description:

Battelle is guided by a founding mission. We invest our knowledge, talents and resources, helping our customers achieve their most important goals. We apply scientific rigor and creativity, succeeding where others may fail and we invest in our communities, making the world better for generations to come. All of us share a common purpose: to solve the greatest challenges of today and tomorrow.


Our 22,000 employees work at the forefront of scientific innovation to tackle critical challenges in security, human health, manufacturing, energy and environmental management. Battelle’s work is grounded in the belief that science, technology and a passion for excellence can make industries more competitive and the world a better place.


We are currently seeking a Cyber Embedded Systems Engineer III. This position is in Dayton, Ohio.  Compensation will be based on qualifications and experience. A full benefits package will be provided. Relocation support is available.




The Cyber Embedded Engineer will support Battelle’s Cyber Innovations group. For 20 years, we’ve been trusted by elite government clients to solve some of the world’s hardest cyber problems.  We work in small agile teams and are always looking for new, creative ideas and passionate problem solvers.


From research to development to operational deployment, we provide focused expertise and solutions to develop rapid prototypes and advanced technological solutions for special mission deployment. Instead of providing solutions to every cybersecurity challenge, we apply our very unique capabilities in cyber software and embedded systems, and especially at the intersection of those two domains, to custom projects from silicon though worldwide networks.


The selected candidate will be an integral part of an accomplished team of cyber experts in both hardware and software; and will have opportunities to work closely with physicists, mathematicians and other scientific experts from across Battelle.


Battelle continuously invests in industry-leading facilities, tools and employees’ professional growth, including a large internal R&D program and access to yearly professional training —to invent and advance innovative technologies and to attract and keep the industry’s best talent. Our high-powered labs include specialized software and hardware, so our team can push the bounds of computer science and engineering.
