Job Description

Cyber Security Engineer, Mid
The Challenge:

Everyone knows security needs to be "baked in" to 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 security skills to design and build secure systems for the Federal Government Client? We're looking for an engineer who can help create solutions for the customer that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As a security engineer on our project, you'll support the design and all Cyber activities that will lead to ATO Cloud deployment activities for mission-critical systems for the client. 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 practical 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 business needs. This is a chance to learn from a team of experts as you make a difference in the security of the Federal Government client. Your contributions will help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices such as endpoint-based detection, response EDR, multi-factor authentication, identity and access management, advanced analytics, etc. You'll be able to gain experience in cloud-based security while building peace of mind in critical infrastructure.

Empower change with us.
