Systems Administrator

The Challenge:

What if you could use your hardware and software skills to improve the technology supporting the intelligence community (IC)? With so much relying on complex systems, a skilled systems administrator can be the difference that makes a project successful. We’re looking for a systems administrator to maintain responsibility of mission critical operations systems on a 24x7x365 shift schedule. As a systems administrator on our project you will perform functional capabilities of the system and will be responsible for the collaboration, coordination, and unity of efforts during the shift. You will ensure the timely, accurate, and complete reporting of critical information requirements, making sure the right senior leaders have the right situational awareness at the right time to make informed, risk-mitigated decisions. You will implement a unity of efforts across all operations positions and monitor and alert the officer on watch and implement reaction and response capabilities.

Your technical expertise will be vital as you identify opportunities for automation and improvement in a mission critical network. Your experience and communication skills will come in handy as you guide your clients through migration planning and implementation. We focus on growing as a team, so we’ll share techniques, work through challenges, and develop new methodologies together. Join our team and solve daily challenges as we improve systems within the Intelligence Community.

Empower change with us.
