Network Engineer, Senior

The Challenge:

Your combination of people skills and technical expertise makes you the team hero, solving one problem after another. What if you could use your IT skills to design and build secure systems for the Navy? We’re looking for a field support engineer who can help create solutions for our Navy clients to modernize their networks.

As a Network Engineer on our project, you’ll design the switching, routing, voice, and Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) capabilities enabling our Navy client’s mission. You’ll work with fellow engineers and the client 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 dependable network 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 mission needs. This is a chance to learn from a team of experts as you make a difference in the security and capabilities of warfighter communications. While modernizing Navy networks, you’ll gain valuable skills and experience in a highly technical and challenging environment. Join our team as we improve warfighter communications by designing, installing, testing, operating, and maintaining robust, dependable, and modern networks.
