Cloud Security Engineer

The Opportunity

Everyone is trying to "harness the power of the cloud," but not everyone knows how. As a cloud security engineer, you know how to secure, protect, and maintain cloud-based technical architectures that meet client needs and take advantage of the latest cloud capabilities. We need you to help us continuously monitor and maintain cloud-based solutions for some of the DoD's toughest challenges.

As a cloud security engineer on our team, you'll foster the delivery of secure cloud-based environments on multiple networks in support of mission-critical operations. You will collaborate across our cloud infrastructure delivery team, and with stakeholders, using an Agile process to ensure implementation, verification, and continuous monitoring of cloud solutions across multiple network domains. You'll support Assessment and Authorization (A&A) activities to achieve and maintain Authorization to Operate (ATO) on multiple networks. You will evaluate enhancements to Cloud environments against Risk Management Framework (RMF) controls and DoD Security Technical Implementation Guidance (STIG) requirements. You'll support data capture and configuration within tools to enable the achievement of the organization's A&A objectives. This is an opportunity to use the latest cloud technologies and to sharpen your skills in Amazon Web Services (AWS) as you look for ways to improve our client's environments using cloud capabilities. Join our team, as we transform warfighter systems with cloud technology.
