Do you find analyzing and understanding complex dynamic systems exciting and challenging?
Are you passionate about engineering robust and resilient military platforms capable of operating in the face of determined cyber adversaries?
If so, this is the perfect opportunity for you.
As a Military Systems Cybersecurity Engineer, you will...
Provide engineering and operational expertise towards studying, designing, developing, implementing, and testing for robust and resilient capabilities and solutions applied to air, afloat, land, space, and subsurface military and/or tactical platforms and systems. Emphasis is on providing systems engineering expertise to yield effective cybersecurity solutions for Combat and Weapons Systems, C4I, HM&E, and related mission and/or tactical systems, by employing technology, people, training and processes to achieve the most robust and resilient systems against nation-state adversaries.
Analyze and evolve the architecture, design, constraints, and requirements of fielded military and tactical systems to enhance system resilience to cyber attack in the presence of an adverse cyber environment.
Work on technical teams in the definition and design of robust and resilient solutions for the acquisitions, operations and sustainment of military and tactical systems in the presence of adverse cyber environments.
Contribute in strategy and early concept demonstration and development for new solutions considering cyber concerns and constraints while respecting and operating within the context of other system constraints.
You meet the minimum qualifications for this position if you have:
B.S. in Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics, Computer, Electrical, Mechanical Engineering, or related fields.
1 or more years of experience designing, developing and maintaining military and/or tactical systems with complex computational and processing dependencies.
Demonstrated ability to design solutions that inhibit or mitigate operational impact from threats given constraints of operations, performance or organization.
Excellent oral and written communication skills.
Proven ability to work in diverse teams as a leader and/or a contributor.
Proven demonstration as a critical thinker developing solutions to complex problems.
Ability to occasional travel required (<10%). Some work required in classified areas.
Active Secret clearance and the able to obtain a Top Secret level security clearance. If selected, you will be subject to a government security clearance investigation and must meet the requirements for access to classified information. Eligibility requirements include U.S. citizenship.
You'll go above and beyond our minimum requirements if you have:
MS/Ph.D. in Computer Science, Computer, Electrical, Mechanical Engineering, or related fields.
5 or more years' experience with military systems architecture, design, and cybersecurity solutions.
Detailed technical understanding and/or operational/maintenance experience with Combat Systems, Weapons and Stores Systems, C4I, Avionics, HM&E, and/or other related military operational technology, including embedded systems and supporting platform network and computing environments is advantageous.
Demonstrated knowledge of cyber issues surrounding real-time operating systems, software-intensive systems, unmanned systems, military standard bus specifications, and operational mission/domain-specific applications.
Experience with full life cycle system engineering process and/or applied research.
Experience in the design and use of engineering models and tools. Working knowledge of IO/cyber techniques, modeling/simulation, and evaluation of cyber architectures.
Demonstrated team leadership or project management skills.
Proven demonstration as a critical thinker developing strategy and solutions to solving complex problems.
Active Top Secret clearance.
