Cloud Infrastructure Architect, Senior

The Challenge:

Everyone is trying to “harness the power of the cloud,” but not everyone knows how. As a cloud architect, you know how to build a cloud based technical architecture that meets customer needs and takes advantage of cloud capabilities. What if you could use your cloud architecture skills to improve the global delivery, availability, and processing of some of the key analytical tools used by the defense community throughout the world? We need you to lead our team as we develop cloud based solutions to some of the defense industry's toughest challenges.

As a lead cloud architect on our team, you’ll be responsible for the continuous evolution and design of an emerging cloud-based analytics architecture. You’ll guide your team as they research the current environment and recommend tools and capabilities from various on premise, cloud based, and hybrid resources. You’ll share expertise with your team through leadership and mentoring, as they help the customer overcome their most difficult challenges in the cloud. Your technical expertise will be vital as you work with clients and mission users to ensure standards are met throughout the cloud migration process. This is an opportunity to use the latest cloud technologies as you look for ways to improve your customer’s environment using current cloud capabilities. You’ll be able to sharpen your skills in automation, cloud based security, and AI/ML while developing critical systems for the DoD. As a technical leader, you’ll identify new opportunities to build cloud based solutions to help your customers meet their evolving needs. Join our team as we transform data analytics for the DoD with cloud technology.
