The Opportunity: 

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

As a Network Engineer on our team, you’ll help the DoD deploy a reliable network to support national defense. You’ll work with customer to learn the strategic goals and operational needs that shape the network requirements.

You will accomplish work without considerable direction and look for ways to improve infrastructure performance using the latest technology and best practices. You'll increase team knowledge of the network by turning metrics into information and explaining their meaning.

This is your chance to grow your skills in network optimization and cloud technologies while continuing to grow your network engineering experience. Join us as we help the DoD to expand their enterprise service capabilities.
