Cybersecurity Engineer, 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 skills to lead the design and building of secure systems for commercial clients? We’re looking for a Cybersecurity engineer who can create solutions for our customers that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As a lead Cybersecurity engineer, you’ll join a team of highly skilled and motivated engineers to design, build, and maintain products and services for our clients. You’ll coordinate with internal teams and stakeholders to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your client’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 business needs. This is a chance to lead a team of experts to make a difference in the security of commercial clients. You’ll lead efforts to help clients overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like endpoint detection and response (EDR) platforms, network and Cloud monitoring, data analytics, and orchestration and automation. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset into areas like Cloud architecture and infrastructure, orchestration and automation, artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, and threat intelligence while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. As a technical leader, you’ll identify new opportunities to use Cybersecurity solutions to help your customers meet their toughest challenges. Become a leader on our team as we improve our world class solutions and products to support commercial clients through Cybersecurity.
