DevOps Engineer, Senior

The Challenge:

Are you looking for an opportunity to make a difference in Healthcare? What if you could find a position that is tailor made for your mix of development, engineering, and communication skills? Efficient software development teams make the most of their time by limiting the activities that take developers away from writing their code. That’s why we need you, an experienced DevOps engineer, to help us shorten the time it takes to get critical tools developed and into the hands of end users e.g. analysts, healthcare providers and payors who need them to help better serve our Veterans.

As a DevOps engineer on our team, you’ll use your development experience to streamline our software development life cycle from requirements to monitoring in production. You’ll incorporate open source tools, automation, and cloud resources to cut down on tedious, boring tasks and free up the team’s developers to do what they do best – innovate. You’ll implement continuous integration and delivery to limit manual testing and troubleshooting. This is an opportunity to build your experience to apply expertise in Cloud technologies and automation using advanced scripting; conduct systems analysis and operational processes to ensure they are being executed properly, solve a diverse range of complex problems while working with limited direction; and maintain system-to-system functionality while researching, planning, designing, and implementing current and new technologies while developing software that will improve veteran’s access to healthcare and their benefits. Join our team as we build tools to transform the future of Veteran’s Affairs

Empower change with us.
