Cyber Data Architect, Lead

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 data science skills to lead the design and building of secure systems for the DoD? We’re looking for a cyber AI architect who can create solutions for the DoD that will stand up to even the most advanced cyber threats, driving innovative capabilities into a complex market.

As a cyber AI architect, you’ll design novel implementations of machine learning solutions in the cyber domain, enhance defensive cyber operations with advanced analytics, lead and develop a growing business, and work directly with senior stakeholder to shape a strategic vision inside and outside the firm. You’ll coordinate work our technical delivery team and business leads to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your customer’s IT 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 advise on new techniques, break free from the legacy model, and go where the industry is going. You’ll lead 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 of experts to make a difference in the security for warfighter operations. As a technical leader, you’ll identify new opportunities to use cybersecurity and AI/ML solutions to help your customers meet their toughest challenges. Become a leader on our team as we improve cyber defensive operations by bringing AI to bear as a force multiplier for highly talented cyber analysts.
