Cybersecurity 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 industry? We’re looking for an architect who can help create solutions for industry that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As a Cybersecurity engineer on our project, you’ll provide technical and programmatic support to key client programs and functions. Further, you’ll drive the implementation of the client Cyber mission assurance plan, Cyber operations policy analysis, and procedure development, strategic and operational planning, process improvement, and research and development of engineering efforts across the client space. You’ll work with in house teams 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 investigate new techniques, break free from the legacy model, and go where the industry is going. As a team, we’ll take a critical approach to network design, providing alternatives and customizing solutions to maintain a balance of security and mission needs. This is a chance to learn from a team of experts as you make a difference in the security of enterprise security. Your contributions will help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like advanced analytics, certificate management processes, and security systems integration visualization. You’ll be able to gain experience in the administration and coordination of system architectures while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve the defensive posture of the organization through Cybersecurity.
