  • Overview

    Peraton has an immediate opportunity for a Top Secret cleared Desktop Publisher to join our Proposal team in Herndon, VA. Our proposal professionals work on business development opportunities to support some of the largest U.S. Federal agencies. You will work with solution architects, technical experts, graphic designers, and writers to build winning proposal responses.

    Our desktop publishers contribute significantly to the style of our documents (while remaining compliant with proposal instructions), scheduling, and resource planning. While proposal development sometimes means night and weekend work, our entire team, our leadership, and Peraton corporate policies provide flexibility to support your work-life balance and reward hard work.


    As one of Peraton’s proposal desktop publishers, you will help build a compliant and winning proposal from the pre-RFP stage to customer delivery. You will create corporate-branded, RFP-compliant document templates and assemble and prepare production deliverables throughout the proposal development cycle. You will work closely with the proposal manager and coordinator on the proposal production plan and schedule, order supplies, pre-stage essential materials, and assist with delivery planning. On large proposal teams, you will lead and mentor junior desktop publishers to ensure a consistent and compliant appearance across all volumes and documents. You will also:

    • Review RFP solicitation document and delivery requirements
    • Provide complete Production support (i.e., printing, binding, and packaging of hardcopies and electronic media)
    • Ensure correct version control, file naming, and accesses
    • Provide desktop application support (e.g., file conversions, scanning, OCR, graphics importing, and document breakout/assembly)
    • Assist the Contracts department with file size mitigation issues and meeting application version requirements
    • Support multiple proposals as necessary
    • Strive to continuously improve the quality of your work as well as our internal processes to contribute to the overall success of the Peraton Proposal Center. Stay current with industry best practices and share with your coworkers to help improve everyone’s skills
    • Provide additional classified material support: Assist with document portion marking, properly securing documents, the disposal of secure materials, and assist our Security department with the wrapping and marking of secure deliverables.



    • A Bachelor’s degree or equivalent, plus at least eight years of direct experience in a proposal production environment.
    • Expert level proficiency with the MS Office suite (especially Word, PowerPoint, and Excel) and Adobe Acrobat
    • Working knowledge with Adobe Creative Suite applications (especially Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign)
    • Knowledge of business development processes (especially the proposal cycle phase)
    • Knowledge of proposal documentation, processes, and workflow
    • Working knowledge on the use of large production printers (Ricoh, Canon, Xerox) and office equipment
    • Active Top Secret 



    • Active Top Secret/SCI
    • MS SharePoint experience preferred
    • Shipley Associates training on proposal development
    • Proposal graphics development experience
    • Experience with content management systems (e.g., SharePoint)
