Systems Engineer - Entry to Experienced Level (NSAW, NSAC, NSAG, NSAH, NSAT)
National Security Agency
The professionals at the National Security Agency (NSA) have one common goal: to protect our nation. The mission requires a strong offense and a steadfast defense. The offense collects, processes and disseminates intelligence information derived from foreign signals for intelligence and counterintelligence purposes. The defense prevents adversaries from gaining access to sensitive classified national security information.
With the ever-accelerating technological advances and growing system complexity, NSA needs System Engineers to integrate complex systems and reduce the cost to operate and maintain systems. To meet these demands, the NSA hires and trains talented and highly motivated junior and senior systems engineers, electrical engineers, computer scientists, computer engineers, and other related professionals.
We need our System Engineers to provide program oversight and implement Systems Engineering best practices across the organization in the NSA enterprise. The need to maintain our core System Engineers group is vital to provide the technical capabilities necessary to successfully execute NSA's mission. The ever increasing complexity of supporting NSA's mission requires world class System Engineers to solve challenging systems engineering problems to enable NSA to successfully execute its mission.
Recent college graduates and junior System Engineers are hired into positions directly supporting a technical mission office or one of two Development Programs (The System Engineer Development Program (SEDP) or the Information Technology Development Program (ITDP)).
The SEDP prepares recent college graduates and junior level technical staff for a career in Systems Engineering at NSA. During the three-year program, participants will rotate assignments, attend training that covers the full breadth of systems engineering disciplines, and earn Department of Defense (DoD) Defense Acquisition W
