Job Description

HBSS Architect, Senior

The Challenge:

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 Host-Based Security System (HBSS) skills to design and build secure systems for an enterprise Navy environment? We're looking for a HBSS administrator who can help create solutions for the US Navy that will stand up to even the most advanced Cyber threats.

As a HBSS network security engineer on our project, you'll configure and administer a HBSS solution for an unmanned integration facility to support mission critical operations. You'll work with engineers across the country and leadership at the headquarters to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your customer's 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 investigate new techniques, break free from the legacy model, and go where the industry is going. As a team, we'll take a critical approach to network design, providing alternatives and customizing solutions to maintain a balance of security and HBSS needs. This is a chance to learn from a team of experts as you make a difference in the security of the Navy. Your contributions will help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like host-based security. You'll be able to gain experience in enterprise architecture, while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve secure testing and integration labs through Cybersecurity.

Empower change with us.
