Identity Governance and Administration 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 skills to design and build secure systems for the US government? We’re looking for an engineer who can help create solutions for that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

 As an identity governance administration (IGA) engineer you will apply Cybersecurity experience in identity and access management (IAM) to analyze, design, and support a continuous monitoring solution to verify and validate appropriate user privileges, assigned credentials, trustworthiness, appropriate user security behavior training, and appropriately granted resource access rights to users. You’ll engage multiple stakeholders and leverage related security products or technologies to recommend solution architectures and designs needed to monitor and report on IAM related data across multiple government agencies. You’ll integrate disparate IAM data from multiple sources into a singular database for correlation and presentation. You’ll maintain responsibility for articulating and authoring multiple findings, recommendations, and other artifacts, including interfacing with key stakeholders to implement tailored IAM solutions. You will work with architects, SMEs, and other engineers, and provide work leadership to junior employees, as needed.
