Cloud Engineer, Mid

The Challenge:

We have the technology, but do we know how to use it? In an industry where “Cloud” is sometimes synonymous with “genie,” it’s important to have someone on your team who knows how to engineer Cloud-based and hybrid on-premise or Cloud-based solutions. That’s why we need you, an engineer who knows how hardware and software components fit together and integrate with Cloud-based resources, to help us modernize mission critical systems for the aerospace industry.

As a Cloud engineer on our team, you’ll support efforts to secure Cloud-based communications network to support mission critical operations. You’ll contribute to tool and capability recommendations based on your research of the current environment and knowledge of various on-premise, Cloud-based, and hybrid resources. You’ll work with our engineering, architecture, and migration teams to inform strategy and architecture design. This is an opportunity to stay on top of the latest cloud resources as you prototype using multiple techniques and new technologies. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset into areas like automation, scripting, and containerization while developing critical systems for several of our clients. Join our team as we transform the way government agencies manage data and information by taking advantage of Cloud technology.
