Full Job Description
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 network engineering and solutions architecture skills to design and build secure systems for your customer? We're looking for a network engineer who can create solutions for an intelligence customer that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.
As a Cyber network engineer on our project, you will, under general direction, assist with the planning, design, and implementation of communications networks. You will be responsible primarily for the assessment and optimization of network design through review and assessment of user needs, conduct feasibility studies for large projects, develop requests for proposal, evaluate vendor products, and make recommendations on selection. You may function as a lead providing guidance and training to junior analysts. You'll design, build, and configure a hybrid virtual and hardware-based network from an attack platform through a network infrastructure to a host detailed to specific mission guidelines, become an expert by conducting break and fix, functional and performance testing, as well as network forensic analysis. Additionally, you will use automated and write scripts to increase the efficiencies and accuracy of the testing and demonstrate the bugs, creatively think outside of standard security, network operations and forensics to determine viability and improvements to network communications. You will also identify and document bugs, errors, and issues with supporting data and analysis, learn and cross-train with other testers on tools, techniques, and procedures for testing, and research tools, methods, and procedures for optimizing network forensic analysis.
