Job Description

Job Number: R0048514

Operations Engineer

The Challenge:

Everyone knows security needs to be “baked in” to a system architecture, but 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 Cyber engineering skills to design and build secure systems for CDM? We’re looking for an engineer who can help create solutions that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As an operations engineer on our project, you’ll support the CDM program’s internal computing environment that supports the CDM project. You’ll work with in-house 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 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 CDM needs. This is a chance to learn from a team of experts as you make a difference in the security of the Cyber space. Your contributions will help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like networking, server management and virtual environments. You’ll be able to gain experience in VMware vSphere to deploy, manage, and monitor the environment and Active Directory to manage permissions while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve government networks and systems through Cybersecurity.

Empower change with us.
