Network Engineer, Senior

The Challenge:

A well-designed network is critical to move data and enable United States Navy systems commands to achieve their mission, but how can an organization make sure their network will fit their current and evolving needs? Crafting the right network, with the right equipment and software, requires a combination of technical skill and careful planning. That’s why we need you, a network engineer who knows how to craft the exact network the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR) needs.

As a network engineer on our team, you’ll work with a Navy client to lead the engineering development, integration, and sustainment of Mission-Specific Network Engineering (MSNE) systems. You’ll collaborate with Integrated Command and Control (C2) and Intelligence (IC2&I) stakeholders to learn the strategic goals and operational needs that shape the network requirements. You’ll then share your expertise during the planning of acquisition, installation, configuration, and maintenance of the network components. From resolving interoperability issues across platforms, to supporting the acquisition of hardware, you’ll put your hardware and software talents to good use. This is your chance to demonstrate your specialized expertise on projects ranging from standalone systems to global, integrated communications solutions that combine satellite and terrestrial networks supporting converged voice, video and data within portable, mobile, and fixed-site applications. Hone your leadership acumen while broadening your network engineering expertise - join us as we help the Navy client's IC2&I ensure interoperability, supportability, and connectivity among MSNE fielded systems and equipment!
