Network Architect

The Opportunity:

A well-designed secure network is critical to move data and enable DoD to achieve their mission, but how can an organization make sure their network will fit their current and evolving needs? Crafting the right network, with the right equipment and software, requires a combination of technical skill and careful planning. That’s why we need you, a Network Architect, who knows how to use your craft to facilitate the DoD needs. As a Network Architect on our team, you’ll work with the DoD to develop a reliable, secure, network to support critical missions.

You’ll collaborate with SMEs, customers, vendors, and users to learn the strategic goals and operational needs that shape the network requirements. You’ll then share your expertise during the planning of acquisition, installation, configuration, and maintenance of the network components. From resolving interoperability issues across platforms, to supporting the acquisition of hardware, you’ll put your hardware and software talents to good use. This is your chance to share your experience with backbone networks, cloud technologies, and core networking, while broadening your security and network engineering work. You’ll dive into challenging hands-on problem-solving, and encounter opportunities to learn new tools and skills. We focus on growing as a team to make the best solutions for our customers.  

You’ll maintain responsibility for completing site surveys and creating structured designs for the customer’s network in support of voice, data, security, and audio and visual systems. You will design engineered drawings, specifications, reports, and other technical documents. You’ll work closely with other IT and facilities team members, project teams, clients, architects, engineers, subcontractors, vendors, material suppliers, and other technical resources to analyze business and technical requirements to develop system designs, estimates, implementation plans, management and customer reports and coordinate the structured cabling design with other design disciplines. You will implement final network solutions to support on-prem and cloud environments. You’ll manage the production of network devices and network architecture design and develop all supporting documentation required for implementation in this global network.

Work with us as we secure and protect DoD enterprise networks for the better.
