Cybersecurity Engineer, Senior

The Challenge:

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 a 24/7 weather modeling and analysis computing center? We’re looking for an engineer who can create solutions for a military customer that will stand up to even the most advanced cyber threats.

As a cybersecurity engineer on our project, you’ll assist in the design and testing of software, networks and computing environments supporting analysis of petabytes of time-sensitive dynamic data, implementation of vulnerability management processes, and improvements to enterprise computing architecture. You’ll coordinate work with team software developers, scientists, and system administrators 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 weather forecasting and modeling. Your technical expertise will be vital as you help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like static and dynamic software testing, system scanning, endpoint security systems, multifactor authentication, identity and access management, advanced analytics, etc. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset into areas like DevSecOps, Big Data processing, and cloud computing while building piece of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team, as we improve enterprise weather awareness and operational support through cybersecurity.

Empower change with us.
