  • Overview

    IPKeys Technologies is seeking a Network Systems Engineering Intermediate to provide transport engineering support for all DOD and non-DOD interconnected communication infrastructures located world- wide. The candidate is expected to participate in regular meetings with internal program staff, teammates, and the government client on a frequent basis is expected to deliver client value for the Communications Engineering Division, Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), which is responsible for maintaining and posturing the DOD Information Network (DODIN) transport infrastructure and capabilities. Effective leadership and communication skills are essential for working among a blended prime/subcontractor program team and developing and maintaining strong client relationships. 

    Responsibilities

    The network systems engineering intermediate candidate shall provide engineering support to develop and/or update Systems Planning & Design (SP&D) documentation of global and regional portions of the DoDIN.  SP&D documentation is site-based and includes all the technical details necessary to implement a design solution at a given site. 

    The candidate shall analyze existing and planned DoDIN Transport, IP, Timing & Synchronization, and Power architectures, and recommend appropriate actions or changes for the best alternatives to engineering support.  

     

    The candidate shall have demonstrated experience with authoring and updating the sampling of government requested deliverables associated with this tasking by providing: 

    • All elements of network and site-specific designs, including port assignments 
    • Technical solutions to resolve network transition issues to include all requirements from, but not limited to, technology refresh, sustainment, site/building relocation, and etc.
    • Initial Major Bill of Materials (MBOM) based on network 
    • SP&D meeting agenda and meeting minutes
    • SP&D documentation review and update report to address the tracking and reporting status of all architecture design issues/concerns 
    • SP&D planning and schedule of update and review 

     

    The candidate shall have demonstrated knowledge and understanding of utilizing DISA Network Change Management tools, Configuration Management tools, Network design tools, and other available means to update SP&D documentation to reflect the current/future DISN architecture for implementation. 

    The candidate shall support the SP&D documentation automation process including the transition to the use of automated tools, the migration of existing SP&D documentation from PowerPoint to the tools, and the development of new SP&D documentation in the tools.  

    The candidate shall provide engineering support and the appropriate procedures to support development of SP&D documentation in automated tools.  The candidate shall provide training as required to the personnel on the development of SP&D documentation in automated tools.  The candidate shall utilize the tools to develop Engineering Work Orders (EWO) to update SP&D documentation plans.   

    The candidate shall provide technical expertise to derive early CP&D engineering solutions and any associated documentations.   

     

    The candidate shall: 

    • Verify the site locations and equipment and determine the current and future needs in support of an early CP&D solution.
    • Provide all elements of end-to-end early CP&D support to satisfy DISN stakeholder requirements
    • Verify early CP&D engineering solutions against existing DISN/network architecture and provide technical recommendation
    • Provide CP&D provisioning documentation for Government review/

     

    Additionally, the candidate shall support the process of transitioning the early CP&D to preliminary design.  System engineering design (SED) (using MSS entry) includes determining the new/existing nodes, card, port reservation (at backbone trunk), DISN backbone.  CP&D will take the information from SP&D and build DCN equipment (new/existing DCN node), Circuit Design & Planning based on network sustainment activities, port reservation (at circuit/detailed level), develop Engineering Work Order (EWO).  CP&D will also support DISN backbone.  CP&D will be involved in more detailed (circuit level) engineering design/activities. 

     

    The candidate shall travel with Government personnel to attend engineering Technical Exchange Meetings (TEMs), support Government project leads at internal/external project management meetings, develop briefing slides for Senior Leadership/project leads, develop white papers and support the development of transport related engineering studies. 

    Qualifications

    • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills 
    • Requirements development and analysis 
    • System and Security Architecture development 
    • Network modeling, analysis, and planning 
    • Development of test plans, implementation plans, and project timelines  
    • Network troubleshooting  
    • Technical planning and analysis, system integration, verification and validation, cost and risk, supportability and effectiveness analyses  

    Experience

    • DoD and/or Government program experience preferred 
    • 5+ years of network systems engineering experience 
    • Master's degree in Computer Science or a related field 
    • Experience analyzing local and wide area network systems
