Cybersecurity Careers

The U.S. Department of Defense is the largest employer of cybersecurity professionals in the world. The department employs 12,000+ cyber security personnel, and more than half are engineers who work on cybersecurity systems to protect government networks from cyber attacks.

JT4 has career opportunities for cybersecurity analysts, cybersecurity experts, and information security specialists. We provide engineering and technical support to multiple western test ranges for the U.S. Air Force, Space Force and Navy under the Joint Range Technical Services Contract, better known as J-Tech II.

Engineering Careers

Because the Department of Defense is primarily focused on national security, it has a hand in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). These academic disciplines are essential to innovations in technology, information and communications systems.

Many engineers at JT4 perform a variety of assignments in planning and overseeing research, design, development, manufacturing, testing, installation, integration, sustainment, operation, and maintenance of diverse software, electronic, and/or mechanical equipment and systems.
