Cyber Systems 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 the customer? We’re looking for an engineer who can create solutions for our customer that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As a Cyber engineer on our project, you’ll provide Cybersecurity engineering services to support the client's mission. You’ll coordinate work with 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. You'll apply expertise in systems engineering to requirements analysis and allocation, architecture analysis and design, technology assessment, and metrics development; provide operational support, including tool testing in an operational environment and coordinating and resolving issues with vendors and other appropriate personnel. You'll develop and apply advanced methods, theories, and research techniques to the investigation and resolution of complex project requirements and technical specifications for software development projects and plan and direct full life cycle projects or major phases of projects for highly visible technical solution programs. This is a chance to make a difference in the security of the IC. Your technical expertise will be vital as you help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team, as we improve IT resources through Cybersecurity.
