The Opportunity:

Everyone is trying to “harness the power of the cloud,” but not everyone knows how. As a platform DevOps engineer, you know how to build, manage, and secure a container platform that meets your clients’ needs and takes advantage of cloud capabilities. What if you could use your cloud platform skills to improve the design, development, and deployment of the SIGINT mission platform? We need you to help us develop and manage container management software to solve some of our clients toughest challenges.

On our team as a Platform DevOps Engineer, you’ll use your experience to streamline our software development life cycle from requirements to monitoring in production. You’ll use the latest cloud technologies as you look for ways to improve your clients’ environments with current container software to ensure seamless orchestration. Using your technical knowledge, you’ll work directly with your clients to inform strategy and design, while ensuring standards are met throughout the containerization process with Amazon Web Services (AWS), software integration, and cloud architecture and Kubernetes.

You’ll recommend tools such as Kubernetes to help your clients manage and securely adopt containers. Additionally, you’ll broaden your skills in areas like Containerization and Microservices while developing critical cloud platforms for our client.
