We are seeking cybersecurity engineers to help drive research,
innovation, and the application of cutting edge cybersecurity
solutions needed to defend our nation's air and missile defense
systems from cyber threats.
Hone your cybersecurity and engineering expertise in support of our
nation's air and missile defense systems. More than simply
satisfying compliance, cybersecurity engineering is a multi-faceted
technical discipline aimed at driving rigorous systems engineering
principles into the design, development, and operation of
cybersecurity capabilities within complex systems. Merging
state-of-the-art cyber resilience techniques with risk management,
cybersecurity engineers are integrated into systems engineering
teams and drive the deliberate definition and implementation of
cybersecurity controls, technologies, and solutions. Provide full
systems engineering support across the system development lifecycle
including concept definition, requirements, architecture, design,
development, integration, and testing. Work with experts to
integrate COTS, GOTS, and Open Source cybersecurity products into
comprehensive cybersecurity solutions specifically tailored for DoD
tactical systems. Analyze complex mission systems for cybersecurity
vulnerabilities and risks. Demonstrate system strengths and
weaknesses through hands-on testing. Devise innovative ways of
applying sound cybersecurity principles within a constrained
