I've seen in some time...
The position is at Archive II in College Park, right next to the
University of MD, at the junction of I-95 and the beltway. The hours are
flexible so avoiding the rush hour traffic is not a big deal.
The role is for a system architec/designer with strong cyber security
experience. Somebody who can evaluate the security implication of
various design proposal. In other words, I'm not looking just for
somebody who can run a firewall or vulnerabiility check, or who can cite
NIST security standard (although those skills woul dcome in handy too!).

multi-sites electronic archives. It's possibly the most interesting

The project is multi-year and is being bidded upon by large system
integrators. So the candidate will get a chance to do interesting work,
and watch how the big guys do it too.
Attched is the annoucement. It's a position I can bring directly in,
without going through the OPM process.
