Enterprise Security Architect

The Opportunity: 

A well-designed network is critical to move data and enable DoD agencies, US Forces, Special Operations, and Test communities to achieve their missions, 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 seasoned network engineer who knows how to develop the exact network the DoD needs. 

As a network engineer on our team, you’ll use your experience in network design and architecture, system interoperability, network transport layers, multi-protocol label switching, gateway protocol, virtual routing and forwarding, and cross domain solutions/multiple levels of security to support the nation’s defense and respond to evolving adversaries. You’ll upgrade or develop enterprise-wide infrastructure, troubleshoot and resolve complex network issues, analyze current working infrastructures and increase security, reliability, and availability for mission-critical network systems.  

You’ll apply your expertise in enterprise security architecture/RMF process, authoring CDS rulesets, performing and documenting system security scans, zero trust clients, virtual machines, routing and switching, integration of encryption gear, network design and architecture, system interoperability, IP engineering, network transport layers, multi-protocol label switching, gateway protocol, virtual routing, and forwarding as you guide our team of problem-solvers to help the DoD evolve and deploy new capabilities and technologies. 

Your knowledge of risk management framework, network protocols, equipment, emerging technology, and configurations will come in handy as you optimize client operations and modernization. Using your experience in Crytographic equipment, key management, software and hardware firewalls, Cisco hardware, cloud migration, virtual machine environments, virtual routing and forwarding, and cyber security, you’ll serve as a trusted advisor to clients on mission-critical projects. Using your technical curiosity and knowledge of industry standards, you’ll make an impact on national security missions.  

Advance your career with us as we help the DoD provide enhanced, persistent environments to support Operational Test and Evaluations, warfighter training against High End Advanced Threats (HEAT), and situational awareness/command and control systems integration for space launch operations. This position is open to remote delivery from any location in the U.S., to include the District of Columbia.
