Your greatest work is ahead!

The C4ISR Operation at Leidos currently has an opening for a Cybersecurity Engineer to work in our Reston, VA office. This is an exciting opportunity to use your experience helping the Air Force establish and maintain the Advanced Battle Management System (ABMS). ABMS is a top modernization priority for the DAF and will be the backbone of a network-centric approach to battle management in partnership with all the services across the Department of Defense. That broader effort is known as Joint All-Domain Command and Control. As envisioned, JADC2 will allow U.S. forces from all services — as well as allies and partners — to sense, make sense and act upon a vast array of data and information faster than adversaries can detect and respond.

Ability to work in Northern Virginia is preferred. Candidate working from remote locations will also be considered.
