Systems Engineer, Mid

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 your customer's environment? We’re looking for a systems engineer who can develop the right systems and translate real-world needs into technical specifications for your customer's environment that will stand up to even the most advanced cyber threats.

As a systems engineer on our project, you’ll you have the chance to analyze user requirements, concept of operations documents, and high level system architectures to validate and test system requirements in support of a major DoD customer program. Your technical expertise will be vital as your team works to modernize the client’s overarching key management architecture by incorporating new plans, designs and systems into ongoing operations. You’ll develop your skills in key management and security and systems engineering while growing your experience by working with a team of program personnel, government overseers, and senior executives.

Empower change with us.
