Cloud Security Engineer, Senior

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 security engineering skills to design and build secure systems for a national security agency? We’re looking for a security engineer who can create solutions for a national security agency that will stand up to even the most advanced cyber threats.

As a security engineer on our project, you’ll build and secure a modern Cloud and DevSecOps platform to host mission critical applications. You’ll coordinate work with the Cloud/DevOps engineers and solutions architects 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 modern software development needs. This is a chance to make a difference in national security.

Your technical expertise will be vital as you help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like secure development and employing zero trust strategies. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset into areas like DevSecOps, Cloud architecture, container orchestration, and DevSecOps automation while building peace-of-mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve national security missions through cyber security.
