What sets GRC apart from others is that it believes the customer should not have to pay for failure. Few companies are willing to sign up to attack the hardest problems where payment may only come when success is achieved. This is not a traditional defense contractor job where you bill hours and the company is paid regardless. GRC's success depends on talented and motivated people creating meaningful solutions. If you want to be part of a team of people that will challenge you in ways you never thought possible, we would love to hear from you. PS If you are looking for a website you won't find one.
