Splunk Engineer, Mid

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 network engineering skills to design and build secure systems for the Intelligence Community (IC)? We’re looking for a Splunk Engineer who can create solutions for the IC that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As a Splunk Engineer on our project, you’ll leverage your experience as an intermediate to advanced Splunk user to support mission critical operations. You’ll coordinate work with multiple mission components 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 mission needs. This is a chance to make a difference in the security of our Nation. Your technical expertise will be vital as you help customers to overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices, implementing and leveraging user management certification in support of one way throw's (OWL) in an advanced development operations network. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset into areas like engineering solutions for data monitoring, integration, and analysis, play a key role in the office of Cybersecurity, network engineering, and security methodologies, while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team, as we improve our Nation's IC through Cybersecurity.
