Network Engineer

The Challenge:

A well-designed network is critical to move data and enable our warfighters 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 engineer who knows how to craft the exact network DoD needs.

As a network engineer on our team, you’ll work with a DoD agency to help design, build, and evolve a reliable network to support our national defense. You’ll collaborate with other stakeholders to learn the strategic goals and operational needs that shape 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 network design and engineering while broadening your network analysis and consulting skills. Join us as we help the DoD create cutting edge and reliable networks for our warfighters.
