The Challenge:

What if you could use your hardware and software skills to improve the technology supporting the Department of Veterans Affairs? With so much relying on complex systems, a skilled systems administrator can be the difference that makes a project successful. We’re looking for a systems administrator with specialties in migrating Web-based applications from virtual data centers to Cloud platforms like AWS and Azure to help us modernize and update the VA’s enterprise application hosting capabilities.

As a systems administrator on our project, you’ll participate in technical research and development to enable continuing innovation within the infrastructure. You’ll help customers overcome the challenges that come with managing day to day operations and maintenance of Cloud based virtualized development and production infrastructure. You’ll provide your customers insight into their network through monitoring and performance management. Your technical expertise will be vital as you evaluate and recommend new web component-related software and tools. Your experience and communication skills will come in handy as you guide your clients through migration planning and implementation. This is an opportunity to broaden your skillset into areas like Linux and Windows OS administration, design highly available infrastructure in AWS/Azure, and utilizing modern monitoring and support platform tools to create up to date operational models.  We focus on growing as a team, so you’ll share your expertise through leadership and mentoring as you help the team work 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 the lives of Veterans by optimizing the delivery of benefits.
