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 a large application portfolio that will have a positive impact for our clients? We’re looking for an engineer who can help create solutions that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As a Cyber engineer on our project, you’ll analyze, assess, design, and implement an enterprise Cybersecurity solution. You’ll work with a broad portfolio of applications 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 client needs. This is a chance to learn from a team of experts as you make a difference in the security of our clients. Your contributions will help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like network security, vulnerability management, Assessment and Authorization (A&A), Authority to Operate (ATO), and incident response. You’ll be able to gain experience with the development of new Cybersecurity hardening solutions for new systems and the remediation or design of security solutions for existing IT capabilities while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we help the organization deliver comprehensive, best value commercial-class products and services through Cybersecurity.

Empower change with us.
