Job Description

Job Number: R0050981

Network Security 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 Cyber engineering skills to design and build secure network solutions for federal and enterprise clients. We’re looking for an engineer who can create solutions for clients that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As a network security engineer on our project, you’ll partner with federal clients to implement comprehensive Cybersecurity solutions for network infrastructure. You’ll coordinate work with in house teams to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your customer’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 program needs. This is a chance to make a difference in the security of federal data protection. Your technical expertise will be vital as you help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like intrusion detection and prevention. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset into a variety of areas, while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve federal data protection through Cybersecurity.

Empower change with us.
