Naval Aviation Platforms Cyber/Network 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 Naval Aviation Platforms? We're looking for a Cyber engineer who can create solutions for NAVAIR that will stand up to even the most advanced and evolving Cyber threats.

As a Cyber engineer and solutions architect on our project, you'll provide critical feedback to design decisions and assess Cyber impacts. You'll coordinate work with network engineers and software developers 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 flight critical mission needs. This is a chance to make a difference in the security of Naval Aviation Platforms and Weapons Systems. Your technical expertise will be vital as you help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like AI for IPS/IDS, the latest encryption methodologies, and multi-factor authentication and advanced analytics. You'll be able to broaden your skillset into areas like mission system integration, rapid technology insertion, and secure tactical communications while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team, as we improve Naval Aviation Platforms and critical mission systems through Cybersecurity.

Empower change with us.
