Cryptographic Modernization Analyst

The Challenge:

Everyone knows security needs to be “baked" into 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-cryptographic expertise to design and build secure systems for senior DoD clients? We’re looking for a crypto-engineer who can create solutions for senior DoD clients that will stand up to even the most advanced cyber threats.

As a cryptographic engineer on our project, you’ll serve as a trusted advisor to senior DoD clients leading cryptographic modernization efforts and Key Management Infrastructure (KMI) efforts across the department. You'll review and coordinate cryptography policies and guidance at the DoD and CNSS levels while coordinating work across Combatant Commands, Services, and Agencies to support the warfighter and promote a Joint enterprise of information systems and networks. 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. This is a chance to make a difference in the security of warfighter communications. Your technical expertise will be vital as you help customers overcome their most difficult challenges by integrating secure practices like cryptographic modernization and KMI. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset into areas like high level DoD policy and strategy while building peace of mind in a critical infrastructure. Join our team as we improve warfighter communications through Cybersecurity.
