Windows System Administrator/Engineer, Senior

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 IT and Cybersecurity skills to design and build secure systems for Navy and Marine Corps (NMC) clients? We’re looking for a network and Cybersecurity engineer who can create solutions for the NMC market that will stand up to even the most advanced cyber threats.

As a network engineer on our project, you’ll assist with the ongoing design, maintenance, troubleshooting and technical sustainment of Navy production networks. You’ll coordinate work with in house teams to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your client's IT 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. You’ll lead the team through a critical approach to network design, providing alternatives and customizing solutions to maintain a balance of security and Navy mission needs. This is a chance to make a difference in the security of naval mission operations. Your technical expertise will be vital as you help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like endpoint based detection, response EDR, multi-factor authentication, and identity access management while also maintaining the availability of Navy networks for a diverse community of users. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset into areas like Windows server administration, group policy management, Domain Name Service (DNS), and Cloud-based security while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we support the mission needs of NMC systems and networks while simultaneously building and deploying technical solutions through Cybersecurity.

Empower change with us.
