Why choose between doing meaningful work and having a fulfilling life? At MITRE, you can have both. That's because MITRE people are committed to tackling our nation's toughest challenges—and we're committed to the long-term well-being of our employees. MITRE is different from most technology companies. We are a not-for-profit corporation chartered to work for the public interest, with no commercial conflicts to influence what we do. The R&D centers we operate for the government create lasting impact in fields as diverse as cybersecurity, healthcare, aviation, defense, and enterprise transformation. We're making a difference every day—working for a safer, healthier, and more secure nation and world. Our workplace reflects our values. We offer competitive benefits, exceptional professional development opportunities, and a culture of innovation that embraces diversity, inclusion, flexibility, collaboration, and career growth. If this sounds like the choice you want to make, then choose MITRE—and make a difference with us.

The MITRE Strategic Communications team is creating impactful brand storytelling, immersive experiences, and differentiated content for our talent, customers, partners, influencers, and the communities in which we work and live. We are looking for an experienced Content & Engagement Lead  to write engaging stories and content packages (words, visuals, audio) that will promote MITRE’s national impact and illustrate how we deliver on our mission of Solving Problems for a Safer World.

This role requires top-notch storytelling, editorial, project management and interpersonal skills. You’re a big-picture content strategist but still obsess over the little details that make a story shine. You strive to create content that’s human and relatable and are eager to build subject-matter expertise that supports the overall growth of MITRE.

This position offers an incredible opportunity to bring a fresh, creative approach to the way we use storytelling to inform and inspire our internal and external communities across strategic platforms and channels.
