We re looking for an engineer and architect who can create Cybersecurity solutions for the DoD that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As a Cyber solutions architect on our project, you ll be involved in Cybersecurity across the development life cycle for customers: from the design and development of access control systems for assisting customers with improving the security posture of their applications. You ll coordinate work with DoD customers and other contractors to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your customer s IT 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. You ll lead the team through 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 make a difference in the security of warfighter communications. Your technical expertise will be vital as you help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like multifactor authentication, PKI, monitoring, and analytics.
