Work that matters

"Working on mission driven programs and projects, I am able to see the depth and importance of what we develop at General Dynamics Mission Systems. I'm able to broaden my skill set and engage in different technical positions. I’ve recently learned that being a part of widely scoped program allows me to engage in different aspects of the technical spectrum."

-- Janet L., Software Engineer

University of Maryland Baltimore County

Encouraged to learn

"The complexity of our solutions produced and the brains of the people behind them is astounding. I work on Rescue 21, a United States Coast Guard system designed to locate boaters in distress. We like to use the phrase we take the 'search out of search and rescue.' I’d say the most interesting (and rewarding) aspect of my job is working on a program that saves lives!"

-- Sierra P., Systems Engineer

Arizona State University

Brilliant people

"I’ve found that it’s the people around you that make you who you are, and I’m constantly being challenged, inspired and encouraged by my coworkers. If there’s one piece of advice I could give to a youth debating their path in life, it would be to get yourself into a community like the one we have at General Dynamics Mission Systems."

-- Max W., Systems Engineer

Wentworth Institute of Technology
