ELK Stack Engineer, Senior

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 government and commercial clients? We’re looking for an engineer who can help create solutions for both government and commercial clients that will stand up to even the most advanced cyber threats.

As an agency dashboard Elasticsearch engineer on our project, you’ll focus on implementing and operating next generation security solutions. You’ll work with a highly skills focused team 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 next generation government solutions. Your contributions will help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like hands-on evaluation, implementation, and operation of leading security cyber defense tools and technologies. You’ll be able to gain experience in the application of in-depth defense strategies in large and complex networks to rapidly identify vulnerabilities and threats, prioritize response actions, and develop effective counter-measures while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve client solutions through cybersecurity.
