Mission Protection Engineer, Mid

The Challenge:

Critical decisions are made every single day in our government. What if you could use your analytical skills to help them make informed decisions? With all the information available today, it takes a skilled analyst to know how to find and interpret the best data to give their clients the right answers. As a mission protection engineer,  you can use your technical experience and your attention to detail to develop reports, intelligence, products, and analytic assessments to give your client the actionable intelligence and context they need. If you have strong analytical skills and a problem-solving mindset, we have an opportunity to use those skills to support our government’s senior policy and decision makers and protect our national security against adversarial space threats.

As a mission protection engineer on our team, you’ll help your client understand intelligence data from all domains on foreign threats to the United States space enterprise, including using satellites and satellite ground operations to support the development of acquisition of space control capabilities and strategies by assessing system threats and vulnerabilities to determine potential risks and impacts. You will also identify the intelligence community (IC)’s shortfalls and gaps and address these through the creation of a new requirement or modification of existing requirements. You’ll gain an understanding of various collection platforms as you explore new data sources, craft effective queries, and combine information from disparate sources, including SIGINT, GEOINT, OSINT, MASINT, open source, and others. You’ll learn how to validate information and apply client tradecraft as you help build assessments for the US IC and senior policy makers. You will become the authority on mission and space protection, so your client will look to you for time critical recommendations, often under pressure. This is a chance to define your expertise, develop new skills in evaluating effectiveness of capabilities and processes through various means, such as modeling, and share your skills with other analysts. We focus on growing as a team to deliver the best support to our customers, so you’ll have resources for mentoring and learning new skills and tools. Join us as we provide the right information at the right time to support the critical needs of our warfighters, nation’s leaders, and policy makers. 

Empower change with us.
