The Challenge

Do you enjoy working in a dynamic, fast-paced environment where you can see the impact of your hard work by working directly with the customer and stakeholders? What if you could combine your hands-on technical experience, systems engineering background, and cybersecurity knowledge to design and build secure systems for the customer? We’re looking for an engineer who can create solutions for our customer that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats. 

As a Cyber engineer on our project, you’ll provide Cybersecurity engineering services to support the client's mission. You’ll coordinate work with teams to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your customer’s 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 help lead the team through a critical approach to system design, providing alternatives and customizing solutions, to maintain a balance of security and mission needs. You'll apply expertise in systems engineering to requirements analysis and allocation, architecture analysis and design, technology assessment, and metrics development; provide operational support, including tool testing in an operational environment and coordinating and resolving issues with vendors and other appropriate personnel. You'll develop and apply advanced methods, theories, and research techniques to the investigation and resolution of complex project requirements and technical specifications for software development projects and plan and direct full life cycle projects or major phases of projects for highly visible technical solution programs. This is a chance to make a difference in the security of the IC. Your technical expertise will be vital as you help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset while helping customers overcome their most difficult and unique challenges.
