Cybersecurity and Systems Engineer, Junior

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

As a Cybersecurity and Systems Engineer on our project, you’ll analyze the Cyber posture of complex Navy systems, provide critical expertise to mitigate Cyber risk, and develop solutions to ensure Navy programs support mission critical operations and deliver needed Cybersecurity functionality. You’ll work with our team of experts 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 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 Cybersecurity and systems engineering, 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 the Navy warfighter. Your contributions will help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like risk management and mitigation, defense-in-depth, data analysis, and Cyber continuous monitoring. You’ll be able to gain experience in Command, Control, Communications, Computers, and Intelligence (C4I), Cyber and systems engineering, enterprise networks and systems, Cyber test and evaluation, and Cyber risk assessment while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve the warfighter’s ability to complete critical missions through sound systems engineering and Cybersecurity practices.
