Cloud Cybersecurity Architect, Junior

The Challenge:

Everyone knows security needs to be “baked in” to a system architecture, but do 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 various Cybersecurity skills to design and build secure systems for DoD? We’re looking for a Cloud Cybersecurity Architect who can help to create solutions for Cybersecurity customers that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As a Cloud Cybersecurity Architect on our project, you’ll implement Cloud security controls in preparation for Assessment and Authorizations (A&As). You’ll work with various teams 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 warfighter support. We help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like security assessment and compliance activities by building, configuring, and managing automated assessment tools and procedures. You’ll be able to gain experience in areas like research of emerging technology, requisite security requirements, and emerging threats to develop a way forward to meet organizational goals while building piece of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve tools and techniques for customer’s needs and future goals into a plan that will enable secure and effective solutions through Cybersecurity.

Empower change with us.
