Remote Work:
Job Number:
Enterprise Security Architect, Lead

The Opportunity:  

Everyone knows security needs to be “baked in” to a system architecture—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 architecture skills to lead the design and development of secure systems for the DoD? We’re looking for a technical solutions architect who can create solutions for the Navy that will withstand even the most advanced cyber threats.

As a lead enterprise solutions architect at Booz Allen, you’ll lead the transformation of cybersecurity efforts to enable information warfare for a secure maritime enterprise. You’ll coordinate work with clients and vendors to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your customer’s IT needs and goals into a plan that will enable secure and effective solutions. We need to come up with the best solutions, so you’ll advise on new techniques, break free from the legacy model, and go where the industry is going. You’ll guide the team through 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 lead a team to make a difference in the security of information warfare. You’ll oversee efforts to help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like cryptography, endpoint detection, zero trust, boundary defense, and advanced analytics. You’ll broaden your skillset into areas like cloud-based security, cyber resiliency, and IT modernization while building peace of mind in critical infrastructure. As a technical leader, you’ll identify new opportunities to use cybersecurity solutions to help your customers meet their toughest challenges.
