Cloud Architect, Senior

The Challenge: 

Everyone is trying to “harness the power of the cloud,” but not everyone knows how. As a Cloud Architect, you know how to build a cloud based technical architecture that meets customer needs and takes advantage of cloud capabilities. What if you could use your cloud architecture skills to deliver cloud solutions for Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities to analysts processing, exploiting, disseminating (PED) battlespace intelligence? We need you to help us develop cloud-based solutions to some of ISR analyst’s toughest challenges.

As a Cloud Architect on our team, you’ll be part of a high-valued agile team that designs, architects, implements, and releases the next generation of ISR solutions within a secure, cloud-based communications enterprise to support mission critical warfighting operations. You’ll recommend tools and capabilities based on your research of the current environment and knowledge of various on premise, cloud based, and hybrid resources. You’ll lead your team as they help the customer overcome their most difficult challenges in the cloud. Your technical expertise will be vital as you work with ISR analysts and warfighting planners to ensure standards are met 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 current cloud capabilities. You’ll be able to sharpen your skills in implementing, maintaining, and improving enterprising solutions through on-demand availability of computer system resources, including data storage and computing power to streamline your data center with hyperconverged infrastructures (HCIs). You’ll compute, store, and network with unified management and security for the delivery of secure hybrid cloud architectures, while developing critical systems for ISR analysts providing critical battlespace intelligence to warfighting elements. As a technical leader, you’ll identify new opportunities to build cloud-based solutions to help your customers meet their evolving needs. Join our team, as we transform ISR PED delivery with cloud technology. This position can be worked from multiple Booz Allen locations across the US.
