Job Description


SAIC is seeking candidates to support United States Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM), including Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) with a focus on survivability, interoperability, reliability, cybersecurity, maintenance, and maintenance upgrades. The successful candidate will be part of the SAIC team, incorporating agile development and operations methodologies and best practices through repeatable agile approach to capabilities assessments and modeling systems in a cost-effective way to explore and document requirements, system characteristics, and capabilities to address reliability, maintainability, quality, supportability, interoperability, and both organizational and technical requirements.


The candidate for this position provides technical analysis and capabilities solutions to a wide range of difficult problems where analysis of data requires evaluation of identifiable factors through imaginative, thorough, and practicable solutions, consistent with organization objectives.


Cyber Engineer/Architect Senior Principle:

  • The candidate selected will work with a team of experts to conduct analysis and evaluations of complex data used by the customer and define new visualization tools, which will allow human analysts to decision makers to easily discern both patterns and anomalies.  The following tasks are milestones to achieve:
  • Develop a program Plan (including as Test Plan) that provides additional detail on each of the proposed approaches outlined above.
  • Perform a thorough analysis of the available data, detail the data formats that the proposed visualization model will ingest. Indicate the availability and sensitivity of this data, and any other potential limitations that might prevent its use in this project. Identify data certification methods and recommend improvements to the CIANA model (confidentiality, integrity, availability, non-repudiation, and authentication).
  • Build a fully integrated perceptual analysis framework and test this framework against a dataset selected in collaboration with the project sponsor. The purpose of this deliverable is to show how and overarching model might work with unclassified datasets against a surrogate problem.
  • Develop and test an operational prototype perceptualization framework designed to meet the sponsor’s requirements. This test will be designed to test sponsor provided data on an unclassified network to demonstrate how the fully integrated system would work in practice.
  • Develop a transition plan that will enable the capability to be tested, certified, sustained and maintained by the sponsor of by the program office that the sponsor chooses. Detail how the capability will be updated as new versions of the capability become available. Detail the process by which the upgrades and systems improvements will be certified to work on DoD networks.
  • Evaluate and provide comparative analysis on possible capability used elsewhere in the Government that meets sponsor requirements and objectives.
