Listing Description

SimSpace, a leader in advanced warfare cyber simulations, is expanding its training content architecture and development team to meet growing customer demand for real-world attack/counter-attack live-fire exercises and skills labs.


As a Security Content Architect at SimSpace, you will design, develop and execute network intrusions on live ranges using real-world adversary tactics coupled with modern security defense and investigative strategies.

Our Training Content team is a combination of remote developers and local developers in our Boston headquarters. Working remotely is an option for experienced engineers located in the US and Canada that have successful experience with working remotely. We bring our entire team together for quarterly off-sites, which facilitates team bonding and some face-to-face interaction. For less experienced engineers or those who have not worked remotely before, we have a strong preference for the Boston area to facilitate mentoring and interaction with more experienced staff.

  • Assess the skills and level of cyber defense of individuals and teams

  • Complete understanding of adversary kill-chain and exploitation scenarios
