Responsibilities
NSA Overview

The National Security Agency’s (NSA) mission is to help protect national security by providing policy makers and military commanders with the intelligence information they need to do their jobs. The professionals at NSA have one common goal: to protect our nation. The mission requires a strong offense and a steadfast defense. The offense collects, processes, and disseminates intelligence information derived from foreign signals for intelligence and counterintelligence purposes. The defense prevents adversaries from gaining access to sensitive classified national security information. NSA is the nation’s leader in providing foreign signals intelligence while also protecting U.S. government information systems, forging the frontier of communications and analysis. We serve the American people by applying a wide variety of technical skills to produce meaningful results that help protect our nation, keeping our friends and families safe for generations to come. NSA’s Linguists, known as Multidisciplined Language Analysts (MDLAs), are expected to take an inclusive approach to problem solving and mission accomplishment by frequently engaging with partners, enablers, and customers across the Intelligence Community.

Description of Position

NSA MDLAs are hired into the Language Analysis Development Program (LADP) or, in the case of MDLAs with extensive experience in Signals Intelligence (SIGINT), directly into positions supporting an analytic mission office.

The LADP, which lasts up to three years, is designed to provide an intensive, accelerated opportunity to acquire the unique technical skills and experience needed to successfully apply knowledge and analytic ability to the SIGINT mission and help MDLAs achieve core analytic competencies in accordance with the Cryptologic Training System Training Standard and the MDLA competencies framework. The program includes 4-5 operational tours in a variety of offices, interspersed with formal classroom and computer-based training. These on-the-job operational tours are primarily focused on analyzing foreign language materials within the framework of the two main SIGINT disciplines of intelligence analysis – SIGINT reporting and SIGINT development.

Multidisciplined Language Analysts are at the forefront of carrying out NSA’s SIGINT mission, and they do so in a variety of ways. MDLAs:

– Offer U.S. policymakers and military leaders a window into the foreign language world of intelligence targets by analyzing, transcribing, and translating key information
– Research and understand foreign intelligence targets, how they operate, and how they fit in the larger geo-political context
– Apply new techniques and develop creative solutions to address analytic problems such as synthesizing large volumes of data and disparate sources of information
– Demonstrate a firm understanding of the communications environment and technology trends of foreign intelligence targets
– Craft written and oral assessments of foreign intelligence that provide unique insights into target intentions unavailable from other intelligence disciplines
– Work independently and collaborate effectively (both within NSA and with other analysts in the Intelligence Community) in research, analysis, and reporting

Skills
The ideal candidate is intellectually curious, has a desire for continual learning, and is:

– Proficient (reading and listening) in one or more critical foreign languages, including Russian, Chinese, Arabic, Somali, Persian Farsi, Korean, Turkish and other languages as missions and needs evolve
– Well organized and able to handle multiple assignments
– A strong written and oral communicator
– Able to synthesize information to solve complex problems
– Able to provide timely and accurate customer service

Coursework, knowledge, and experience in one or more of the following is desired:

– Target development
– Social network analysis
– Metadata analysis
– Research methodology
– Topical or Regional studies relevant to national security
– Quantitative/Statistical analysis
– Data modeling, mining, or science
– Cyber security
– Computer science or networking
– Telecommunications

Relevant Internships, extracurricular activities, and/or foreign study are also considered.

Prior military without a degree but with language analysis cryptologic experience will be considered.

In most cases, Experienced Level Language Analysts at NSA will have substantial experience in one or more of the following areas:

– Performing language quality control;
– Serving as an established Subject Matter Expert (SME);
– Authoring and releasing reports;
– Mentoring, coaching, and leading other Language Analysts;
– Ensuring the technical health of the mission;
– Mastering and coaching others on the use of a variety of internal tools;
– Testing at Interagency Language Roundtable (ILR) 3/3 levels for one or more mission languages; and
– Displaying a broad knowledge of the Intelligence Community and how various elements work together to prosecute mission.

Pay, Benefits, & Work Schedule
On-the-job training, Internal NSA courses, and external training will be made available based on the need and experience of the selectee.

Monday – Friday, with basic 8hr/day work requirements between 0600 and 1800 (flexible).

NSA hires for a variety of locations, to include: Maryland, Georgia, Hawaii, Texas, Utah, and other locations.

Position Summary
As a language analyst, you will use your passion for foreign language and strong oral communication, written communication, and critical thinking skills to research, translate, transcribe, report, and analyze foreign intelligence. Your foreign language and English skills will provide key decision makers with a complete and accurate picture of the context within which the decision is being made (i.e. provide an understanding of the nuance, context, cultural overtones, and dialect in which the communication occurred). Another way to use your foreign language skills at NSA is to work as a scientific linguist. Scientific linguists support the mission by designing, developing, evaluating, and/or integrating products to enhance the understanding of mission critical foreign languages or materials by applying linguistic knowledge (e.g. syntax, morphology, phonetics, semantics) to address operational problems.

Attorney Fellow (Legal Honors Program) – Mid/Experienced Level
Fort Meade, MD

Posted: 2019-06-21 – Closing: 2019-09-06

Responsibilities
NSA Overview

The professionals at the National Security Agency (NSA) have one common goal: to protect our nation. The mission requires a strong offense and a steadfast defense. The offense collects, processes and disseminates intelligence information derived from foreign signals for intelligence and counterintelligence purposes. The defense prevents adversaries from gaining access to sensitive classified national security information.

The National Security Agency (NSA) Office of General Counsel (OGC) is seeking superior Honors Program applicants who are interested in joining its elite team of lawyers who provide legal advice to the Agency as it carries out its missions. At NSA OGC, you will analyze cutting-edge technical and intelligence issues and will frequently provide legal advice that relates to high-profile current events affecting our national security. Attorneys working in NSA OGC apply their expertise, skills, and education to solve a variety of challenges not found in the private sector or at any other government agency. You will have the opportunity to make a global impact on a daily basis as you work with other top caliber professionals at the highest levels of the Agency and across the U.S. Government. This critical work ensures that Agency operations comply with the law while also protecting both our national security and our civil liberties.

NSA is the only entity in the U.S. Government charged with collecting foreign signals intelligence in support of the nation’s efforts to counter the increasingly dangerous threats to U.S. security posed by terrorism, cyber actors, weapons of mass destruction, and hostile foreign governments. In addition, NSA is also charged with the protection of U.S. national security systems, including Department of Defense worldwide computer networks and other systems. In conducting these vital missions, NSA relies upon personnel with world-class technical and professional expertise.

Because the twin missions of NSA – signals intelligence and cybersecurity – are two of the most important and dynamic challenges our Government faces today, there is rarely a typical day for an NSA attorney. We are routinely presented with exciting and novel legal issues at the intersection of technology and law. In tackling these challenges, our attorneys work directly with senior officials at the Department of Justice’s National Security Division, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Central Intelligence Agency, the National Security Council at the White House, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the Department of Defense, as well as other agencies in the Executive Branch and relevant committees of Congress.

NSA attorneys work in a highly classified setting and are entrusted with tremendous responsibility as they advise the Director and other senior leaders at the Agency on a diverse and complex spectrum of issues related to gathering the foreign intelligence information needed to fight international terrorism, espionage, transnational crime, and narcotics, to defeat foreign cyber adversaries trying to steal national secrets, and to provide intelligence support to critical military overseas tactical operations, all while protecting our civil liberties and ensuring strict compliance with the Constitution and our laws. Because the NSA is a Department of Defense agency, our attorneys have a unique opportunity to be directly involved in national security operations working alongside military and civilian colleagues, as well as to interact with the private sector in cybersecurity and other matters.

In short, many OGC attorneys say they can’t imagine working in a more exciting and important position.

Description of Position

NSA OGC is looking for highly motivated entry-level attorneys to join its Legal Honors Program in Fall 2020. The Legal Honors Program is NSA OGC’s exclusive entry-level attorney hiring program.

With appropriate training and supervision, NSA Honors Program attorneys are entrusted with immediate responsibility, working directly with clients and Agency leadership. Attorneys selected for the Legal Honors Program will also have special opportunities, available only to Honors Program attorneys, to attend high-level briefings, meetings, and congressional hearings on national security issues, liaise directly with intelligence community partners and other federal agencies, and tour facilities throughout the intelligence community, all while working under the guidance and mentorship of a senior attorney assigned to them from among the leadership of NSA OGC. Honors attorneys will be well positioned at the close of their three-year term to apply successfully for a full-time attorney position within NSA OGC or to utilize the skills acquired during the Program to launch a career outside of the Agency in national security law or other legal disciplines.

The responsibilities of an Attorney at the NSA can include:

– Advising the Agency on legal matters involving a particular subject matter (e.g., intelligence operations, procurement, research and development, information security, patents, security matters, legislation, employment/personnel issues, ethics)
– Analyzing legislation, programs, policies, regulations, or plans to determine impact on the Agency
– Representing the Agency’s official position in legal and legislative proceedings
– Representing the Agency in interactions with outside customers, DoD, Congressional representatives, foreign partners, or the general public
– Conferring with/educating clients, customers, or stakeholders on legal or policy issues
– Determining the legal sufficiency of documents
– Drafting legal briefs, pleadings, etc
– Making legal determinations in accordance with laws, regulations, professional standards, or Agency policies and procedures

Skills

– detail-oriented
– customer and results oriented
– able to adjust to changing situational requirements

– able to manage multiple tasks with competing timelines and deliverables

Pay, Benefits, & Work Schedule

The selected candidate may be eligible for non-competitive conversion to a permanent appointment at a later date.

Position Summary
The Office of Inspector General (OIG) defines the oversight authority, responsibilities, and guidance regarding activities of the OIG at NSA and conducts oversight of the NSA mission. Within the OIG, the Audit branch performs independent audits and related reviews of Agency programs and operations in accordance with government auditing standards, designed to ensure compliance with applicable laws, regulations, and standards and to improve the Agency’s efficiency and effectiveness.
