Cybersecurity Engineer, Mid

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 a client? We’re looking for an engineering who can help create solutions for the client that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats. 

As a security engineer on our project, you’ll participate in the design, engineering, integration, implementation, testing, deployment, maintenance, review, and administration of the infrastructure, hardware and software required to effectively manage the security and risk posture of the network and resources. You will assist with developing system concepts and apply the systems engineering life cycle (SDLC) to translating strategic Cyber objectives, technology, and environmental conditions into engineering outcomes and solutions. Assist with selecting and applying processes and methodologies to meet Cyber performance objectives and analyze trends and emerging technology for potential program modernization. Finally, you will configure Cyber systems to meet user requirements.

Support the acquisition of hardware and software, as needed. You’ll work with client employees and other contractors to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your customer’s 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. As a team, we’ll take a critical approach to network design, providing alternatives and customizing solutions to maintain a balance of security and mission needs. This is a chance to learn from a team of experts as you make a difference in the security of warfighter communications. Your contributions will help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like endpoint based detection, identity and access management, etc. You’ll be able to gain experience in orchestration of security events and Cloud-based security while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve warfighter communications through Cybersecurity. 

Empower change with us.
