BOC, is currently seeking a Linux Server Security Engineer to serve on a project in Washington, DC at a large federal agency client site. The selected candidate for this job will serve in the Security Engineering branch within federal client’s IT Security Operations division. The selected candidate will be tasked with administering several of the client’s Linux-based security products which run on various RedHat and CentOS-based operating systems. The selected candidate must be a quick study in IT security principles, tools, and best practices to ensure that all Linux-based security solutions in the client’s environment are configured effectively and efficiently.
A candidate with a strong background in Linux server/system administration will be successful in this position.

This position is ideal for mid-level to senior-level system administrators looking to advance their careers into the realm of cybersecurity.
Security products deployed within the client’s environment are a mixture of vendor-supplied appliances running custom (usually Linux-based) operating systems and software-based deployments which run on client-managed Linux and Windows servers. Knowledge and familiarity with Linux operating systems and technologies is essential for a candidate to be successful in this position.
The goal of the client’s IT Security Operations division is to proactively monitor for, identify, and remediate IT security vulnerabilities and intrusions.
