The Opportunity: 

Everyone is trying to “harness the power of the cloud,” but not everyone knows how. As a Cloud Computing Infrastructure Architect, you know how to take advantage of cloud capabilities. On our team of experts, you’ll use cutting-edge enterprise cloud platforms to support your clients as they modernize their IT infrastructure and meet their most challenging missions. We’re looking for an engineer who can create advanced network security solutions in the cloud that will stand up to even the most advanced cyber threats.

As a senior cloud network security engineer at Booz Allen, you’ll research, design, and implement network security solutions to protect our client's most sensitive information in AWS, Azure, and GCP. You’ll coordinate with investment teams, executives, clients, and industry-leading vendors to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your customer’s goals into a plan that will enable secure and effective cloud-hosted 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 design, including providing alternatives and customizing solutions to maintain a balance of security and mission needs. This is a chance to make a difference in the security of our country's financial markets, warfighters, citizen services, and healthcare. Your technical expertise will be vital as you help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating cloud-native network security, next-generation firewalls (NGFW), Transport Layer Security (TLS), intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDS/IPS), packet capture (PCAP), web application firewalls (WAF), and network monitoring and analytics capabilities. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset into advanced and emerging areas of cybersecurity like zero trust networks, software-defined networking, and container security to support dynamic and immutable cloud infrastructure. Join our team as we deliver innovative cybersecurity solutions to protect our client's information in the cloud.
