Joint Fires Planner, Lead

The Challenge:

Do you love leading a project as it develops from concept to completion? Do you have the attention to detail needed to catch issues and course correct? With deliverables on the horizon, project teams need leadership with vision and focus. That’s why we need you, a joint fires planner with the skills and experience to lead a Quick Reaction Test to develop, test, evaluate and refine Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures for conducting cross-domain fires into the maritime domain.

We would like to capitalize on your experience at the Joint Staff, combatant command or service component levels with fires planning to enhance dynamic and deliberate fires. This project will be a challenging position where you and your team will maintain responsibility for providing support to Joint training and exercises. As the planning lead, you’ll work with Joint and Service targeting subject matter experts and across the supported command to plan, monitor, and report on specific activities. This is your chance to broaden your skills in joint-feasibility studies and joint-testing while making an impact with your project management expertise. Join us as we help INDOPACOM enhance their joint fires capabilities.
