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 the Air Force? We're looking for an engineer who can help create solutions for the Air Force that willstand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As a Cybersecurity engineer on our project, you'll assist with securing our client's network and developing an acquisition information assurance strategy. You'll work with in-house teams 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 warfighter communications. Your contributions willhelp customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like advanced analytics. You'll be able to gain experience in securing a government network while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve the security of a major government network through Cybersecurity.

Empower change with us.
