National Space Cyber Lead

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 the Intelligence Community? We’re looking for a Cyber leader with the engineering skills needed to create solutions for our Intelligence Community client that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As the National Space Cyber operations engineer and lead, you’ll manage multiple Cybersecurity and engineering teams and contracts focused on novel and non-traditional capabilities to meet an IC client's Cyber operations and mission requirements. You'll lead technical staff focused on client site delivery and be actively involved in every aspect of contract oversight and client relationship management. You will manage contract financials and reporting requirements for agile contracts while building robust industry relationships to meet a full spectrum of Cyber requirements. You’ll coordinate work with other contract teams delivering in the same client space as well as vendors on our team providing unique and cutting-edge Cyber solutions. You’ll 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 the Intelligence Community. Your technical expertise will be vital as you help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like endpoint-based detection, response EDR, multi-factor authentication, identity and access management, and advanced analytics. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset into areas like Cyber fusion, Cyber threat hunt, and Cyber data science while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team, as we improve the security of our nation's IT infrastructure through Cybersecurity.
