The security company formerly known as Blackwater is now called Academi. The company offers both full-time and contract positions, with the bulk of the contract positions requiring some form of security or military training.
Some examples of contract positions at Academi include persistent ground surveillance system (PGSS) operator, intelligence analyst, armed security guard, firearms instructor, training manager and unmanned aerial vehicle operator. These positions are temporary and may involve deployment outside of the United States to potentially dangerous areas.
Academi also hires for full-time positions in more of an office and administrative role, such as human resources and business development. These jobs are located in Detroit, Mich., Moyock, N.C. and McLean, Va.
