Military Communications Subject Matter Expert


Join our defence and national security business and you’ll be helping users plan and train to meet the most complex security threats in the world. Working alongside experts in AI and Machine Learning, computational modelling and distributed systems, you’ll be putting multiplayer technology to life-saving use.
Your mission is to become our Military Communications subject matter expert (SME) with our Defence business unit. The role is centred around working with customers, partners and internal stakeholders to design synthetic environments that deliver rich and coherent synthetic content to meet project requirements and transform military training practises through use of data and modelling and simulation (M&S).
Our clients have large, multi-provider, complex communications networks underpinning their information capabilities.  Any disruptions to the availability, integrity and security of data within the network, or the services running over them, can have an extensive impact on critical business operations such as communication links to armed forces personnel in the field.

Areas for Impact

  • Maintain and share a deep understanding of digital communication technologies used by our customers, including their near term needs and current solution ecosystem, and how that maps to our solutions
  • Engage with internal and external stakeholders to support the design and evolution of the our decision support business line (IO.Decide) with a focus on integration of third party content
  • Act as a subject matter expert for the IO.Decide business line including the content ecosystem (data, components & interfaces) that underpins the capability delivered to our customers
  • Help to identify and provide technical support for engagement with  partners that can potentially provide components into the content ecosystem
  • Work closely with our Product and Partner Success teams to help select and prioritise content and capabilities required to address our projects
  • Maintain up-to-date knowledge in relevant specialist areas e.g. Current and future digital network opportunities, commercial products in the network communications domain,  including common data standards and sources,

We'd like to hear from you if you identify with the following:

  • You have excellent analytical and problem solving skills, and are able to support development of complex solutions under project, technology and scientific constraints
  • You have a strong digital communications background, e.g. previous NOC  engineer or architect, network system consultant, designer or systems engineer
  • You have a solid understanding of Network communications across central government, or ideally within defence related sub-branches of government such as MoD.

While we think the above experience could be important, we’re keen to hear from people that believe they have valuable experience to bring to the role. If you identify with the team and mission, but not all of our requirements, then please still apply.
Due to the nature of this role, you will be expected to meet requirements associated with obtaining UK security vetting clearance; including an unbroken residency in the UK for the previous 5 years. If you think that this might be an issue for you, please let us know
