Network Engineer, Lead

The Challenge:

A well-designed network is critical to move data and enable warfighters to achieve their mission. But how can an organization make sure their network will fit their current and evolving needs? Crafting the right network, with the right equipment and software, requires a combination of technical skill and careful planning. That’s why we need you, a network engineer who knows how to craft the exact network the DoD needs.

As a network engineer on our team, you’ll consult for the DoD as they work on a reliable network to support critical missions. You’ll lead a team assisting clients, SMEs, and other stakeholders with learning the warfighter operational needs that inform the network requirements. You’ll then lead the planning of acquisition, installation, configuration, and maintenance of the network components. From resolving interoperability issues across platforms to supporting the acquisition of hardware, you’ll put your hardware and software talents to good use. This is your chance to support your team with growing their knowledge base in leading-edge technologies while broadening the scope of your network engineering work. Join us as we help engineer, secure, and evolve DoD networking solutions.
