Cloud Automation Engineer

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 skills to design and build secure systems for our customers? We’re looking for an engineer who can create solutions for our customers that will stand up to even the most advanced cyber threats.

As a cloud automation engineer on our project, you’ll design and implement cloud solutions to support cyber operations across numerous customers. You’ll coordinate work with in-house teams 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 investigate 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 make a difference in the security of many large and complicated customers. Your technical expertise will be vital as you help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like endpoint based detection using EDR platforms. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset into areas like cloud based security, while building piece of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team, as we improve our advanced cloud platform to support our customers through cyber security.
