Hi everyone--
 
I thought you should know my group at MIT Lincoln Lab (#42, Surveillance Systems, division 04) is in an aggressive hiring mode (from what I've heard) and has hired 20 people in the last 6 months on a base of about 90.
 
I think this includes not just technical/engineering openings, but also contracts admin & business-related roles.
 
 
I'm happy to talk about the work I've done so far (I started September 1) if that will help anyone--I know firsthand that job searching can be a challenge.
 
Best,
Eric Harkleroad
