Cybersecurity Engineer, Senior

The Challenge:

Everyone knows security needs to be “baked in” to a system architecture, but you actually know how to bake it in. You can identify and implement ways to harden systems and reduce their attack surface. What if you could use your Cyber engineering skills to design and build secure systems for government entities? We're looking for an engineer who can create solutions for the government that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As a Cyber operations engineer on our project, you'll design a secure communications network. You'll coordinate work with our inhouse team to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your customer's IT needs and future goals into a plan that will enable secure and effective solutions. We need to come up with the best solution, so you'll investigate new techniques, break free from the legacy model, and go where the industry is going. You'll lead the team through a critical approach to network design, providing alternatives and customizing solutions, to maintain a balance of security and mission needs. This is a chance to make a difference in the security of our government. Your technical expertise will be vital as you help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like multi-factor authentication. You'll be able to broaden your skillset into areas like Cloud-based security while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team, as we improve our customers through Cybersecurity.

Empower change with us.
