General Dynamics Information Technology (GDIT) presented Pizza My Mind on February 11. GDIT is a subsection of General Dynamics, a company with locations all across the globe. GDIT serves as a defense contractor working in many areas such as artificial intelligence and applied machine learning, enterprise IT, cyber, cloud, application development, and more. Presenters Jay Powell (Chief Technology Officer) and Amira Nguyen (Early Career Recruiter) joined us to talk about what GDIT does and what opportunities they have available.
One of GDIT’s initiatives is equality, inclusion, and diversity. They are actively working to foster a diverse culture within the workplace. GDIT offers a ten week paid internship program that will be 100% virtual this summer due to COVID-19. GDIT hires all skill levels and features a supportive training program for new hires.
GDIT responded to COVID-19 by immediately sending everyone that could to work from home. Employees were supplied with ample collaboration tools, laptops or remote desktop access to their work environment. Meetings of more than 4 people were prohibited, and those in the office are expected to wear masks and social distance to keep everyone safe. They have worked to continuously support their employees through uncertain times.
For those interested in cybersecurity, there are many opportunities available at GDIT including pen testing, computer network defense, attack, and exploit, and many more areas of focus.
