Platform 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/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 the DoD.

As a platform engineer on our team, you’ll support efforts to manage a Big Data platform across multiple customers, including maintaining the operation and efficiency of that data platform. You’ll contribute to tool and capability recommendations based on your research of the current environment and various on-premise, Cloud-based, and hybrid resources. You’ll work with migration teams, Cloud architecture, developers, and engineers to inform strategy and architecture design. This is an opportunity to work with the latest Cloud resources as you learn prototyping using multiple techniques and new technologies. You’ll be able to gain experience in automation, platform management, and security while developing critical systems for the defense department. Join our team as we transform business systems across defense by taking advantage of Cloud technology.

Empower change with us.
