Defense Analyst

The Challenge:

Are you searching for a position where you can use your program analysis skills to make a difference? A program requires a significant investment of limited resources across multiple projects. With that level of complexity, you need a skilled program analyst examining how those resources are used and keeping the program on the path to success. That’s why we need you, a program analyst who can ensure success through careful analysis and effective communication.

We have an opportunity for a program analyst to join our team as we assess and identify risks and recommend plans of action and milestones for potential communications security (COMSEC) and crypto device upgrades and replacements to support existing cryptographic and platform or aircraft COMSEC devices, key distribution, and management systems. You’ll work with program leadership to monitor the cost, schedule, and performance of multiple projects using tools like COMSEC devices and accounts and maintain regular interactions with customers and managers. The real power of program analysis comes from communication, so you’ll identify, analyze, document, and validate required operational capabilities and shortfalls of existing cryptographic and platform or aircraft COMSEC devices, key distribution, and management systems and make recommendations for improvement to program leadership. You will develop briefings and reports based on the data collected and subsequent analysis. We focus on growing as a team to deliver the best support to our customers, so you’ll have resources for mentoring and learning new skills and tools. This is a chance to directly impact the US Air Force by contributing to program strategy and helping to eliminate risks across projects. Join us and help make sure our COMSEC program stays on-time and within budget as we improve Air Force information assurance and crypto-security.

Empower change with us.
