Job Description

Description

SAIC is looking to hire a classified Systems Administrator to join our team covering offices in Rosslyn, VA and Lorton, VA, supporting our Information Technology Office (ITO).
 
ITO strives for continuous improvement of our ITO solutions and provides SAIC with the IT infrastructure and services required for long-term growth and competitiveness.

The Systems Administrator is a crucial part in SAIC's mission to delivery leading solutions, capabilities, and resources to our customers in National Security, Defense, Federal/Civilian, and other organizations. As a member of the Classified IT Operations teams, you will be responsible for the day-to-day and continuous administration, monitoring, and compliance of classified network(s), systems, and services in accordance with customer-defined frameworks (i.e. RMF/NIST800-171). 

You will leverage your communication and engagement skills to collaborate with your teammates, who are also highly skilled Administrators, as well as partners and teammates ranging from Engineers, Support Analysts, Security Assessors, and Program Management stakeholders to ensure availability, performance, and quality of the systems/services you maintain.

As the focal point in the Operational Status and needs of the systems/networks/services you administer, you will be expected to not only provide regular updates (written and in-person), but effectively team with management and stakeholders to plan and execute on pending needs. A particular attention to detail is required to adhere to controls and schedules, while the ideal candidate is also able to be agile; adapting to ad-hoc requests, offering constructive assistance, and being engaged in their own professional development.

  • Identifies areas requiring product improvement, and engages with team members to design, implement, and verify improvement efforts (e.g. upgrades and hardware or software engineering change orders resulting in the desired performance improvement/compliance mitigation).
  • Maintains full awareness of Security, Regulatory, and Corporate policies/compliance requirements, interpreting and managing implementations of technology in support of those controls.
  • Performs and provides proactive assessments and testing/validation of controls against requirements (self-auditing) to provide continuous assurance.
