Cloud Security Engineer, Senior

The Challenge:

We have the technology, but do we know how to use it? In an industry where “Cloud” is sometimes synonymous with “genie,” it’s important to have someone on your team who knows how to engineer Cloud-based security and hybrid on-premise and Cloud-based security solutions. That’s why we need you, an engineer who knows how security, hardware and software components fit together and integrate with Cloud-based resources, to help us modernize mission critical systems across a variety of our top clients.

As a Cloud security engineer on our team, you’ll help to create solutions to drive the next wave of innovation. You’ll recommend tools and capabilities based on your research of the current environment and knowledge of various on-premise, Cloud-based, and hybrid resources. You’ll work with our engineering, architecture and migration teams to inform strategy and architecture design. This is an opportunity to stay on top of the latest Cloud security resources as you lead efforts to prototype using multiple techniques and new technologies. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset into areas like network and firewall configurations, scanner configurations and AWS best practices to agencies supporting government civil and defense groups. Join our team as we transform the way government agencies manage data and information by taking advantage of Cloud security technology.

Empower change with us.
