  • As a solutions architect on our team, you will innovate solutions to complex problems as you help our DoD clients evolve a deployable data center and other National Security Systems (NSS). You will work with other like-minded engineers to include Network, Systems, Security, Endpoint, and Software engineers to learn the client’s strategic goals and operational needs, understand compliance requirements, and use those to update the system’s requirements, shape the system’s design, and incorporate new technologies to continue to increase the lethality of the DoD. Once your design is approved, you will install, implement, configure, and document the design. Subsequently, you will operate and maintain the design to support DoD events at CONUS and OCONUS locations and to see first-hand how you can further improve your system. From deconflicting advanced technologies and their security requirements, to supporting the acquisition of new technologies, to resolving interoperability issues across platforms, you will put your hardware, software, design, and critical thinking talents to good use. This is your chance to develop an architecture and then do the hands-on work of bringing it to fruition and keeping it operating as you intend.
  • As you join our team of problem-solvers helping DoD clients evolve and deploy new capabilities and technologies, you will serve as a thought leader spearheading solution architecting and work with a team of engineers to apply your expertise in system design and architecting, system interoperability, solutions deployment, and hardware-software integration.
  • Additionally, you will grow your skills in enabling secure data-in-transit (DIT) and data-at-rest (DAR) using Commercial Solutions for Classified (CSfC), implementing data-centric security environments, deploying custom software to administer and secure end points, maintaining a high system security posture, and developing new skills to meet the needs of the system’s design.
