We're looking for an experience Threat Analyst who can be part of a leadership team that creates solutions for our clients that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.


As a Threat Analyst, you'll provide technical and operational support to the DoD. Assist your clients with the attribution and identification of new adversary infrastructure.

You'll coordinate work with your team members to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your customer's Cybersecurity 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 work with your team to 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 network needs. This is a chance to make a difference in the security of our government.
