The Opportunity: 
Are you looking for an opportunity to develop a data platform that will have an impact on rapid exploitation and sharing of multi-INT information across the intelligence community? Solid platform development is a critical part of any program’s success, and you know how to do it right – scalable design with baked in security. That’s why we need you, a developer with the skills to build a platform that will transform the integrated intelligence mission. 
 
As a data platform developer on our team, you’ll design and develop the core data integration platform for our project from end to end. You’ll work with customers and end-users to understand their mission, architecture, and security requirements. With a focus on the customer’s goals, you’ll build a design that will scale to meet their evolving needs. Your technical expertise will be vital as you recommend tools and capabilities based on your research of the environment and new technology. Your design will set the standard for future development, so you’ll craft an architecture that smoothly works with existing infrastructure without compromising security. As a technical leader, you’ll identify new opportunities to build platform-based solutions to help your customers meet their toughest challenges. This is a chance to use your deep OS knowledge and broaden your skill set into areas like Cloud computing, large-scale data ingestion and processing, multiple data store types, including graph data, time series, spatial, and other NoSQL, high performance data streaming, data science, and supporting the integration of novel mission applications and analytics. Join us as we develop software-based solutions to make a difference for the integrated intelligence mission.
