PKI Programmer, Senior

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 engineering and programming skills to design and build secure systems for Marine Corps clients? We’re looking for an application developer who can create solutions for the Marine Corps that will stand up to even the most advanced cyber threats.

As a Cyber applications developer on our project, you’ll create and maintain applications to enhance and streamline Marine Corps Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) processes and services. Develop, test, and implement new application capabilities, as directed by government leadership. Maintain, validate, and ensure compatibility of existing custom applications. Create and maintain scripts to enhance and streamline PKI processes and services. Provide database and DoD Certificate Authority (CA) connector support to enhance and maintain the Marine Corps Card Management System (CMS). Enhance and maintain the Marine Corps Registration Authority (RA) database, providing token issuance logging for quick record lookup and archival purposes. Provide independent assessment and creative approaches to solving problems and streamlining PKI services throughout the Marine Corps.

Empower change with us.
