The U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command, also known as CCDC, discovers and develops cutting-edge technologies that empower and protect American Soldiers and ensure their safe return home. CCDC civilians are recognized internationally as experts in their field, which span the full spectrum of science and engineering disciplines.

CCDC is a major subordinate command of the U.S. Army Futures Command, which is modernizing the way the Army does business by creating a space of endless possibilities to explore, develop, and test new methods, organizations, and technologies. Above all else, Army Futures Command and CCDC want to make sure Soldiers have what they need, before they need it, to protect tomorrow… today.

CCDC's civilian scientists and engineers develop technologies that make it possible for America's Soldiers to successfully defend our nation and its interests anywhere in the world. To do that, we need a diverse workforce with a mastery of current state-of-the-art and emerging technologies that can leverage research and create new opportunities that meet the Army's requirements.

We hire professionals, recent graduates, and interns utilizing various Direct Hire Authorities (DHA) and Expedited Hire Authorities (EHA) to allow more flexibility and an expedited hiring process when possible. Below are some resources for job applicants that may help throughout the process.
