Communications Network Engineer

The Challenge:

A well-designed network is critical to move data and enable Army and Department of Defense forces to achieve their mission, but how can an organization make sure their network will fit their current and evolving needs? Crafting the right network, with the right equipment and software, requires a combination of technical skill and careful planning. That’s why we need you, a network engineer who knows how to craft the exact network to support these DoD departments' needs.

As a Network Engineer on our team, you’ll work with a team of engineers to evaluate operational networking capabilities to support current and emerging mission command programmatic requirements for the Army. You’ll collaborate with SMEs, project engineers and other key stakeholders to learn the strategic goals and operational needs that shape the Army's command and control (C2) network requirements. You’ll then share your expertise during the planning, acquisition, installation, configuration, and maintenance of the network components. From resolving interoperability issues across platforms, to supporting the acquisition of hardware, you’ll put your hardware and software talents to good use. This is your chance to share your experience as a member of a high-performance engineering team while broadening your network engineering skill set. Join us as we help develop the next generation of C2 capabilities for the Army and Joint Services community.
