Your technical expertise will be vital as you work with migration teams to develop and re-platform existing capabilities and build new ones throughout the cloud migration process.

This is an opportunity to use the latest cloud technologies as you look for ways to improve your customer’s environment using cloud capabilities. You’ll be able to sharpen your skills in automation, cloud-based security, native cloud services, and more, while developing critical systems and mentoring tomorrow’s cloud security experts.
