Container Security Engineer
The Department of Defense (DoD) is harnessing the cloud and leveraging containers and orchestration solutions now more than ever. We’re looking for a Container Security Engineer to help us as we support the DoD and the warfighter. As a Container Security Engineer, you know how to implement and secure industry-leading container technologies that meet DoD customer needs and take advantage of GovCloud capabilities.
You’ll apply specialized knowledge of container security and orchestration to develop security solutions in multi-cloud and hybrid-cloud environments and protect our client’s most sensitive information. You’ll work on a dynamic, cross-functional team and employ automation and cybersecurity best practices in on-prem, Azure, and AWS environments. You’ll also coordinate with executives, clients, and industry leading vendors to identify the right mix of tools and techniques to translate your client’s goals into a plan that will enable secure and effective cloud-hosted solutions. You’ll have the chance to work within a secure environment to create and manage GovCloud solutions. In addition, you’ll have access to our internal on-prem and cloud lab environments, providing you with the opportunity to explore different ways of solving our clients’ problems, and you’ll partner with stakeholders and your team to deliver the right technical solutions. With mentoring, challenging hands-on problem-solving, and opportunities to learn new tools and skills, we focus on growing as a team to provide the best solutions for our customers.
