On our team of experienced professionals, you’ll use cutting-edge enterprise cloud platforms to support your clients as they modernize their IT infrastructure and meet their most challenging missions. In addition, you will have to opportunity to support a development team to build a system that will have a positive impact.

Efficient software development and machine learning (ML) teams make the most of their time by limiting the activities that take developers away from writing their code.

On our team, you’ll help streamline our software and ML development life cycle from requirements to monitoring in production. You’ll incorporate open-source tools, automation, and cloud resources to cut down on tedious, boring tasks, and free up the team’s developers to do what they do best – innovate. You’ll work with the team to implement continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) to limit manual testing and troubleshooting.

This is an opportunity to build your experience in Cloud-Native Technologies, Infrastructure-as-Code, Pipelines, and Kubernetes while developing products that will support our agile teams to move faster and deliver more to those on the front lines. Build your experience with the software development life cycle on a team that works together to make the best software solutions. Join our team as we build tools to transform the future.
