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 architecture skills to lead the design and building of secure systems for the federal government? We’re looking for an architect who can create solutions for a civil government agency that will stand up to even the most advanced cyber threats.


As a lead solutions architect on our project, you’ll operate as a cyber security subject matter expert for a team performing advanced security fusion center services. You’ll coordinate work with executive level stakeholders, security engineers, and operational staff 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 advise on 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 business needs. This is a chance to lead a team of experts to make a difference in the security of financial management services. You’ll lead efforts to help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like security operations service transformation, business process reengineering, and continual enhancement of security fusion center processes, solutions, and tools. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset into areas like advanced security monitoring and detection, incident response, threat intelligence, data enrichment, security solutions engineering, and vulnerability management while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. As a technical leader, you’ll identify new opportunities to use cybersecurity solutions to help your customers meet their toughest challenges. Become a leader on our team as we improve financial management services through cyber security.
