Information Systems Security 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 intelligence customers? We’re looking for a network engineer who can help to create solutions for our incredibly dynamic intelligence customer that will stand up to even the most advanced cyber threats.

As an information systems security engineer on our project, you’ll provide support and expertise to a rapidly expanding customer space that has mission critical needs across the globe. You'll assist with the development and implementation of a critical network infrastructure and work to solve cutting edge network development problems. You’ll work with other experienced network engineers, cyber developers, and customer shareholders 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 research new techniques, break free from the legacy model, and go where the industry is going. On our team, you’ll learn how to take a critical approach to network design, providing alternatives and customizing solutions to maintain a balance of security and operations needs. This is a chance to learn from a team of experts as you make a difference in the security of mission critical network operations. You’ll gain experience in cutting edge network specialization areas and unique network environments while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve our customers fast-paced needs through cybersecurity.
