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 engineering skills to design and build secure systems for our customers? We’re looking for an engineer who can help create solutions for our customers that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As a junior information assurance Cybersecurity engineer on our project, you’ll provide technical analysis in a dynamic environment. You’ll work with team members 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 effective solutions. We need to come up with the best solution, so you’ll research new techniques, break free from the legacy model, and go where the industry is going. On our team, you’ll learn how to 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 of our nation. We help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like the development of the DoD Information Assurance Certification and Accreditation orocess. You’ll be able to gain experience in Cybersecurity while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve the nation through Cybersecurity.
