What if you could use your engineering skills to protect personal, financial, health, and other sensitive information for government agencies and global enterprises? We're looking for an engineer who can create advanced detection analytics in the cloud that will stand up to known and evolving cyber threats.  

As a Cloud Analytics Engineer on our team, you'll apply specialized knowledge of data analysis and threat detection 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 to develop end-to-end cloud data ingest platform that supports real-time threat detection and incident response to secure clients' cloud-hosted 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. This is a chance to make a difference in the security of our country's financial markets, warfighters, citizen services, and healthcare. Your technical expertise will be vital as you help customers overcome their most difficult challenges with large-scale data ingestion and processing, multiple data store types –  including graph data, time series, spatial – high performance data streaming, data science, and the development of novel cloud threat detection analytics. You'll be able to broaden your skillset into advanced and emerging areas of cybersecurity like zero trust networks, automated incident response, and advanced analytics to support dynamic and secure cloud infrastructure. Join our team as we deliver innovative cybersecurity solutions to protect our client's information in the cloud.
