An Air Force software development unit specializing in cyberspace operations has moved into a historic downtown San Antonio building. The 90th Cyberspace Operations Squadron is now operating out of the San Antonio Light Building at 420 Broadway, which is also home to MySA and the San Antonio Express-News. 

The unit will fill a 43,000-square-foot space dubbed “Shadow’s Edge” with 225 developers and staff beginning this fall, according to a news release. Those software developers will specialize in offensive and defensive tech development in support of U.S. Cyber Command, also known as USCYBERCOM, which focuses on bolstering the cyberspace capabilities of the Department of Defense. 

“We are accelerating the delivery of access and payloads to build operational kill chains and break the kill chains of our adversaries,” said Lt. Col. Casey “Waldo” Miller, 90 COS Commander, in the news release. 

A kill chain is a military cyber defense term used to explain the steps an adversary takes during a cyber attack, allowing cyber defense to be a step ahead in an attempt to break the process.

People interested in working for the special unit can send a resume to 90COS.Hiring.Office@us.af.mil.
