Job Description

Remote Work:
Job Number:
Cyber Architect, Mid

The Opportunity:  

Everyone knows security needs to be “baked in” to a system architecture—you 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 architecture skills to design and develop secure systems for the Federal Government? We’re looking for an architect who can help create solutions for government that will withstand even the most advanced cyber threats. 

As a Cyber Security Architect at Booz Allen, you’ll support the Program Management of a suite of cyber security tools, deliver a Zero Trust Architecture Roadmap and develop an Enterprise Integration Strategy for Modernization, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning (ML) capabilities. You’ll work with in-house teams, subcontractors, and industry partners to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your client’s needs and goals into a plan that will enable secure and effective solutions. We need to come up with the best solutions, so you’ll investigate new techniques, break free from the legacy model, and go where the industry is going. As a team, we’ll 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 cyber defense network environments. Your contributions will help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like SIEM, SOAR, CI and CD, endpoint security management, and advanced analytics. You’ll be able to gain experience in Zero Trust Architecture, AI and ML informed response, automation and orchestration of security events, and cloud-based security while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure.    

Join us. The world can’t wait.
