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 secure systems for the federal government? We’re looking for a Vulnerability Assessment and Compliance Engineer who can help create solutions for federal government clients that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.
As a Cyber operations engineer on our project, you’ll work with an expert team focused on implementing and operating next generation security solutions for government clients. You’ll perform hands-on evaluation, implementation, and operation of leading security Cyber defense tools and technologies and apply in-depth defense strategies for large and complex networks to rapidly identify vulnerabilities and threats, prioritizing response actions, and developing effective counter-measures. You’ll work with an in-house team and client security 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 research new techniques, break free from the legacy model, and go where the industry is going. On our team, you’ll learn how to 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 government networks. We help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like vulnerability management, attack surface reduction, and threat intelligence analysis. You’ll be able to gain experience with designing, implementing, and configuring IT systems and security infrastructure while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve the security of the federal government’s most critical networks through Cybersecurity.
