SIGINT Tool Systems Engineer

The Challenge:

At a certain point, experience-based system design can start to look like clairvoyance. The right interface can make a system easy to use, encourage early adoption, and save time and resources. When you’ve developed so many systems that you can not only design the best technology solution, but you can also anticipate and preempt future technical issues and client needs, you’re a solutions architect. You’ve evolved your skills into strategy through a long path of systems delivery accomplishments and the curiosity to understand how all the pieces of the ecosystem fit together. Are you ready to use your combination of knowledge, skill, and experience to tackle the toughest data driven challenges in the Intelligence Community?

As a solutions architect on our team, you’ll create cutting edge Web applications with people in Cloud, software engineering, UI development, testing, systems engineering, and user experience. This is an opportunity to leverage the analysts knowledge that we support on other contracts to ensure that we create a seamless user experience using the full client-side stack, building the best tools that are responsive, 508 compliant, and answering the real questions that analysts have. And, what do you do next in a career where you’ve reached this level? You mentor the next set of architects to help them grow into tomorrow’s solutions architects. Join us as we partner with the IC analytic community and build amazing capabilities in the federal space for the better.

Empower change with us.
