Systems Administrator, Senior

The Challenge:

Your combination of people skills and technical expertise makes you the team hero, solving one problem after another. What if you could use those skills to improve the technology supporting the Open Architecture (OA) Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS)? We're looking for a systems administrator who can work with software developers to install, integrate, and test products, systems, software, and related components and equipment with a solid background in operating systems, such as Windows 2012 R2, RHEL 7, and VMWare to help us provide system flexibility to the US Air Force ISR community.

As a Systems Administrator on our project, you'll troubleshoot problems and document findings of tests, define testing processes, and ensure tests adhere to established standards. You'll coordinate with fielding agencies to support the deployment of systems, provide guidance and work leadership to junior test engineers, maintain current knowledge of relevant technologies, and participate in special projects as required. You'll provide your customers insight into their network through monitoring and performance management. Your technical expertise will be vital for identifying problem areas and opportunities for improvement in a mission-critical network. You'll help your team better understand the network by turning metrics into information and explaining their meaning. We focus on growing as a team, so you'll share your expertise through leadership and mentoring as you help the teamwork through challenges and develop new methodologies. As a technical leader, you'll identify new opportunities to modernize the network to help your customers meet their needs. Join our team and solve daily challenges as we improve ISR operations.
