Secure Cloud Engineer, 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 Cybersecurity skills to design and build secure systems for DoD and Commercial Cloud Environments? We’re looking for a Cloud engineer who can help create solutions that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As a secure Cloud developer on our project, you’ll analyze the Cloud architecture of complex systems, provide critical expertise to mitigate Cyber risk, and develop solutions to ensure mission critical operations and deliver needed Cybersecurity functionality. You’ll work with our team of experts 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 research new techniques, break free from the legacy model, and go where the industry is going. On our team, you’ll learn how to take 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 learn from a team of experts as you make a difference in the security of the user and environment. We help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like defense-in-depth, risk management, identity and access management, and information assurance. You’ll be able to gain experience in Cloud Cybersecurity and Information Assurance while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve the user’s ability to complete critical missions through Cybersecurity.
