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 skills to design and build secure systems for the US government? We’re looking for an engineer who can help create solutions for that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

You’ll lead the team through 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 make a difference in the security of government networks and systems. Your technical expertise will be vital as you help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like identity and access management (IAM) frameworks. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset into areas like articulating and authoring multiple findings, recommendations, and other artifacts, including interfacing with key stakeholders to implement tailored IAM solutions while building piece of mind in a critical infrastructure.
