JOB DESCRIPTION

Red Cyber Space Operator (RCO)

SUMMARY

Are you ready for a challenge that will keep you on the cutting edge of cyber-security while supporting multidisciplinary mission assurance / vulnerability assessments on critical mission systems? Parsons provides comprehensive cyber security expertise for national defense programs and is seeking employees with an eye for detail, a drive to succeed, and a passion for ensuring mission success.

The Red Cyber Space Operator is an integral member of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) Red Assessment Team. The DoD's premier Red Assessment Team is unique in that it performs assessments from an adversarial perspective, emulating the full spectrum of identified capabilities from lone actor to the well-financed terrorist organization to the foreign intelligence entities to demonstrate exploitation of vulnerabilities. The RCO will help build the organization's red cyber capability-as part of both the Red and White cells-and capacity in support of the Certification and Accreditation (C&A) process.

Assessment teams may deploy to high threat but permissive environments anywhere in the world. CONUS and OCONUS travel for durations of up to two weeks per trip.
