R2C is seeking a Senior Information Systems Security Engineer to support a mid-size mission network infrastructure via the implementation and daily operation of network and system monitoring capabilities.

We welcome the most challenging problems facing our national security and apply intellect, talent, and innovation to reach feasible and valuable solutions to each challenge.

We want to make sure you have what you need to do the best you can on the job and grow in your career with us over time. Almost all companies say they have a culture of inclusiveness and that they value employee input, but R2C puts that statement to work every day. It’s time for a change.
