Expression Networks


Oh my God they [purple unicorn candidates] do exist! ...ClearanceJobs is the one place I trust to find these people – other places you can only find one or two within an hour of searching. 20 minutes on ClearanceJobs and you’ve found at least 10! JASON KINASHI TECHNICAL RECRUITER, EXPRESSION NETWORKS
Headquartered in and around the DC Metro, Expression Networks provides data fusion, analytics, software engineering, IT, and electromagnetic spectrum management solutions to the Department of Defense, Department of State, and others in the national security community. Their “Perpetual Innovation” culture focuses on creating immediate and sustainable solutions through agile teams in a casual work environment that is truly a great place to work with internal teams and while engaging with clients.


Expression Networks is seeking technical candidates through the DMV area, with a specific need for cleared developers, including a Sr. Full Stack Developer with an active secret clearance, and a Sr. DevSecOps Engineer with Top Secret Clearance (polygraph preferred).

The Challenge

Being a software development heavy contractor, it is tough finding qualified candidates with robust engineering backgrounds and active high-level security clearances.

How ClearanceJobs Helps

Expression Networks has experienced massive growth despite a pandemic year, and their next big feat according to Jason Kinashi, technical recruiter, will be graduating from a small company to a mid-sized firm. To sustain growth healthily and not become outsized too quickly, Jason finds ClearanceJobs to be his number one resource for filling the positions they promised the government they could during the request for proposal process, for roles from public trust all the way to TS/SCI access with polygraph.

“Other job boards may have a ton of candidates, but ClearanceJobs has vetted, qualified candidates with specific clearances and tools that save time,” Jason says. Both Workflow and Voice tools have allowed Jason to connect with candidates, automating processes that would otherwise be done manually, and through a platform that candidates trust. “While I’m busy searching for candidates across many different areas, Workflow does the work for me while I’m completing other tasks – it’s an A+ tool that should be used by anyone in any firm.”

ClearanceJobs internal messaging tools have also supported Expression Network’s recruiting efforts - calling candidates that are actively online through the Voice feature is different from any other platform with similar tools – candidates know they can trust anyone calling through ClearanceJobs because all federal agency and government contractor recruiters are vetted.

Jason says that ultimately, “ClearanceJobs tools make cleared recruiting a walk in the park.”
