Job Description

BAE Systems has need of a computer systems engineer to renovate and manage a global log ingestion and transformation service architecture. This will include evaluating legacy server infrastructure for utility, designing and deploying new servers where necessary, converting existing legacy logging connectors and collectors to cutting-edge agents, managing event transformation/parsing and flow diagrams, managing a log caching and subscription service, and assuring output to consumers (data lake, SEIM, etc...). Ownership of this service includes maintaining compliance status and documentation, implementing monitoring and metrics at all owned phases of data flow, and working with global customers and IT facilitators. A candidate for this role should have strong familiarity with systems administration (Windows, *nix), security appliances and/or event logging, data engineering, systems & network architecture design, change management, and IT systems audit & compliance. The immediate project requirement is the migration off of the proprietary transformation & ingestion components and onto cutting-edge and open alternatives, with key performance objectives for the long term of availability and integrity of data through the system. The two primary consumers of data flowing through this service are a security operations group (1TB/day, will be reduced by this effort) and an archive, reporting, and data analytics service (2TB/day, will continue to grow). The former group has a specific transformation schema that will apply to all data consumed, and the later primarily consumes data 'as-is' but may require specific transformations depending on use case and business need. This position can be optioned as full remote with occasional site visits (Northern Virginia), or hybrid/full on-premise if preferred. Candidates must be eligible for Secret security clearance, though a clearance is not required to apply. This is a senior engineering role and experience supersedes educational accomplishments, though both are taken into consideration.
