Cloud Computing Architect

The Challenge:

Everyone is trying to “harness the power of the cloud,” but not everyone knows how. As a cloud computing application architect, you know how to build a cloud-based technical architecture that meets client needs and takes advantage of cloud capabilities. What if you could use your cloud architecture skills to improve warfighter Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance capabilities through cloud solutions? We need you to help us develop cloud-based solutions for some of Air Forces' toughest challenges.

As a leader on our team, you’ll build, operate, and maintain on premises, hybrid, and commercial cloud solutions. This is an opportunity to use the latest cloud technologies as you look for ways to improve your client’s environment using current cloud capabilities. Your technical expertise will be vital as you work with Air Force Clients and colleagues to inform strategy and design and ensure standards are met throughout the cloud migration process. You’ll recommend tools and solutions based on your research of the current environment and knowledge of various on premise, cloud based, and hybrid resources. You’ll use your experience to guide your team as they help the client overcome their most difficult challenges in the cloud. You’ll be able to sharpen your skills in computer programming and scripting languages while developing critical systems for the Air Force. As a technical expert, you’ll identify new opportunities to build cloud-based solutions to help our client meet their evolving needs. Join our team, as we transform warfighter ISR capabilities and communications systems with cloud technology. Additionally, you’ll share your skills in areas like computer programming and scripting languages while developing critical systems for the Air Force.
