The Challenge:

Your combination of people skills and technical expertise makes you the team hero, solving one problem after another. What if you could use those skills to improve the technology supporting the front lines of SIGINT collection and knowledge management? We’re looking for a systems administrator that will support and provide system administration architecture expertise to the broader technical team.

As a systems administrator on our project, you’ll have a multitude of responsibilities that will mean providing analytical support through system administration, knowledge management, information sharing, data transformation, and malware analysis taking place in SIGINT. You’ll provide support for the implantation, troubleshooting, and maintenance of IT systems. Additional means providing Tier I and Tier II escalation for problem identification, diagnosis, and resolution of problems. You’ll learn how to help customers overcome tough challenges through monitoring and performance management. You’ll analyze problem areas and opportunities for improvement in a mission critical network. You’ll be able to combine your technical experience with communication skills as you turn metrics into information and communicate their meaning. This is an opportunity to gain experience in using LINUX and Windows. We focus on growing as a team, so we’ll share techniques, work through challenges, and develop new methodologies together. Join our team and solve daily challenges as we improve the analysis of front-line data collection.
