From aerospace engineering and digital modernization to cybersecurity and satellite communications systems, the Booz Allen team in Colorado operates at the front lines of technology advancement, applying systems engineering and other technical skills to extend what’s possible. Here are five reasons to join our work in Colorado as we focus on supporting client initiatives of vital importance to the nation.
1. Say goodbye to ordinary missions: At Booz Allen, you’ll help drive results that are critical for America’s defense and national security.
Booz Allen Colorado helps integrate and optimize technologies that protect the U.S. warfighter in the air and on the ground. Applying their deep technical expertise, our professionals position operators for success in high-stakes space/counterspace situations and enable analysts to stay ahead of adversaries. What ties these missions together? By supporting all of them, our Colorado team helps keep the nation safe.
“Our client tries to quickly bring innovative capabilities to the warfighter,” says Booz Allen’s Patrick Braker, a Colorado Springs-based senior lead engineer. “I’m the father of an active-duty Navy lieutenant; many of my best friends have sons and daughters who are serving. I like putting a face on the warfighter that I know my client is trying to support, and knowing that I'm working to deliver the best capabilities for them to use someday.”
2. Redefine what’s possible: Our Colorado team applies the latest technologies in aerospace engineering, satellite communications, digital modernization, cybersecurity, and more.
Our Colorado team turns innovative thinking into solutions for urgent challenges. How? By helping agencies transition crucial software assets to classified clouds. By providing advanced engineering expertise to ensure resilient position, navigation, and timing capabilities. By designing cyber tools that spot vulnerabilities in real time. By safeguarding vital information from hackers. Just to name a few examples.
“Booz Allen is dedicated to being a top player in the space defense industry and being a part of the firm’s growth here is definitely exciting,” says Booz Allen’s Sean Winter, a lead associate with our defense military intelligence/space team in Colorado. “The leadership you are surrounded by is very ambitious, and their drive and energy motivate me on a daily basis.”
3. Serve those who serve: You’ll find new ways to defend and strengthen the nation.
Thousands of veterans, reservists, and military spouses have discovered exciting and rewarding careers by joining us. What makes our Colorado team a great place for veterans? Booz Allen was founded by a veteran, and today we continue to celebrate veterans’ unique motivations to extend their commitment to service.
“I recruit military veterans to Booz Allen often—I tell them we're very much like the military,” Patrick, a U.S. Navy veteran, says. “We're mission-driven, trying to bring the best capabilities to the field. We work with smart, dedicated people in a team-oriented environment. Everyone is helping each other out to solve complex problems. We rise together as a team.”
Through our support to the Department of Defense (DOD), Booz Allen offers ongoing opportunities for you to continue making a difference for the nation. In Colorado, we work side by side with service members at installations including Buckley Air Force Base (AFB), Peterson AFB, and North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) headquarters.
4. Bring your security clearance: With your clearance up to the TS/SCI level, you’ll have exceptional choice in creating your career path.
Classified missions in defense military intelligence and related areas present one-of-a-kind challenges and opportunities for creative problem-solving. You’re more than your clearance, and, as a member of Booz Allen’s team in Colorado, you’ll have opportunities to bring all of your talents to problem solving at the front lines of national security.
“We are often asked, ‘What effect can you cause?,’” Patrick explains. “We then study the problem, do a proof-of-concept solution, and test our development. Sometimes we fail to achieve what we want, but when successful, we develop some innovative capabilities that can be game changers.” Across Booz Allen, the classified work we do encompasses wargaming, biometrics, artificial intelligence, and more, creating pathways for you to contribute and lead.
5. Build vital connections: We’re active participants in the Colorado communities where we live and work.
From Denver, Aurora, and Lakewood to Colorado Springs, we engage with our communities, dedicating time, energy, and ingenuity to make a positive difference. Here’s one example: professionals from our Military Application of the Space Environment team in Colorado Springs volunteered to help make DOD’s Warrior Games a valuable experience of challenge and growth for athletes with disabilities. Engaging with our local and regional communities also means taking time to explore the region's Front Range, with all of the outdoor adventures it has to offer. “Work-life balance is very important to me,” Sean says, “and I can’t get enough of hiking and just enjoying the Colorado sun. The weather here is incredible.”
