Rhombus is purposefully transforming the nation’s defense and national security enterprises with Guardian, its Artificial Intelligence platform for strategic, operational, and tactical decision-making at the speed of relevance. 

We are looking for people who are driven by a sense of purpose. In this role, you will solve our customer’s uniquely complex problems that others have said could not be solved, sometimes building things that have never before been built. 

You will have to accomplish these ambitious, industry-first projects on challenging timelines to meet the speed of the warfighter. Even as you apply that breathtaking creation of singular complexity, you will immediately need to move to the next complex challenge.  You will excel in this role if you are hungry to make a difference and are intellectually bold, and you’ll excel because you know that there is no other team in the world that could succeed under such conditions, and because you are proud to leave your indelible mark on the nation. And then you will smile when you hear our clients say, “If we can dream it, Rhombus can do it.” 

Come join our cross-disciplinary and world-class team of technologists who are working hard every day to deliver game-changing solutions to transform national security.

Form CC-305
Page 1 of 1
OMB Control Number 1250-0005
Expires 04/30/2026

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We have a goal of having at least 7% of our workers as people with disabilities. The law says we must measure our progress towards this goal. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had one. People can become disabled, so we need to ask this question at least every five years.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way. If you want to learn more about the law or this form, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
