My client has a long tradition of innovation and creating novel technologies stemming from its origins (Bell Labs). E-mail attachments, DSL, SONET are some of the technologies the organization has created over the years as well as the first ever voice over packet call (IP wasn’t invented yet). Today this company is doing research through funding mostly by government research agencies (DARPA, ARL, AFRL, and others) creating the future technologies. People tend to work on a lot of cool leading edge technologies. Environment is vey dynamic. People work on different technologies almost every year. They mostly build prototypes and proof of concepts through agile development (not traditionally structured development processes).People need to be flexible, willing to work on different technologies, learn, and very strong technically (teams are small so everybody can tell how much everybody else is contributing).
