Splunk Engineer, Lead

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 the federal government? We’re looking for an engineer who can create solutions for the federal government that will stand up to even the most advanced cyber threats.

As a Splunk Engineer on our project, you’ll be responsible for the onboarding, design, performance, implementation and capacity of the Splunk platform. You’ll coordinate work with in house teams to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your customer’s IT 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. You’ll lead the team through a critical approach to network design, providing alternatives and customizing solutions, to maintain a balance of security and healthcare needs. This is a chance to make a difference in the security of healthcare and prescription safety. Your technical expertise will be vital as you help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like enterprise security. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset into areas like prototyping new ideas and technologies while helping create solutions to drive the next wave of innovation, while building piece of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve healthcare for millions of customers through cyber security.
