Leidos Intelligence Group is seeking a Network Engineer to join a dynamic team on a large enterprise IT program where the client designs, develops, tests, integrates and deploys solutions for critical requirements. The current solution is at the end of life stage, therefore the client requires new solutions to be developed and incorporated utilizing new and innovative technologies to successfully meet user requirements.

They should be able to design backup procedures, troubleshoot problems, provide resolution, and ensure that system development follows guidelines and industry best practices, prepare and deliver program and user level documentation, communicate and share expertise within and across the client’s organizational boundaries, and work both independently and in small groups.
