Cyber Systems Test and Integration 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 test documentation for an integrated Cyber defense tool solution? We’re looking for an engineer who can help create solutions for federal agencies that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As a Cyber Systems Test and Integration Engineer on our project, you’ll conduct manual functional testing, regression testing, and systems integration testing. You’ll work with both internal and external stakeholders 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, including providing alternatives and customizing solutions to maintain a balance of security and business needs. This is a chance to learn from a team of experts as you make a difference in the security of the organization’s operational services. Your contributions will help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like testing, deploying, and administering the infrastructure hardware and software. You’ll be able to gain experience with conducting requirements analysis, mapping and analyzing the development of test methodologies, and supporting the continuous improvement of quality assurance processes while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve the Cybersecurity of government networks and systems.
