Come work at Knexus Research Corp! We pride ourselves as a leader in the Artificial Intelligence community, having experience in both research and development of software to be used by the Department of Defense, Census Bureau, and other government agencies. You can get a deep dive of some of our past projects here.

As a small company of only 30 employees, our team members find themselves in a unique position – they get to immerse themselves in complex programs from start to finish, while still having time to embrace the quirky Knexus culture. Between designing complex AI algorithms or developing first-class user interfaces for use on naval ships, you will get the chance to learn all of the company president’s favorite metaphors and interject in heated debates about the proper way to brew coffee in the company kitchen (if you dare).

The nature of our work means that the Knexus staff gets to work on projects as a whole, rather than just contributing small pieces to a larger, unknown project. Also, as contracts end and are re-structured, staff members have the opportunity to join new projects, furthering their professional development and keeping things interesting. At Knexus, you are a valued employee, not a cog in the machine.

Now that you are desperate to come work for us, here’s what we need from you to make that happen:

  • A can-do attitude. Remember, we are at the cutting edge of artificial intelligence – just because you thought something was impossible in the morning, doesn’t mean we won’t be able to figure it out at lunch.
  • A willingness to learn. Our clients want us to innovate to solve complex problems. You may need to learn new technologies, new coding languages, or new methods of working with eccentric people.
  • With great power comes great responsibility. Our team members aren’t just entering data or copy-pasting code. We are working on important projects and you will play an important role. You will need to take it seriously and own your project.

Due to Federal Government contract regulations, US Citizenship is required for most Knexus positions.

All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, gender identity and expression, age, disability, or Vietnam era, or other eligible veteran status, or any other protected factor.
