You’ll recommend tools and capabilities based on your research of the current environment and knowledge of various on premise, Cloud-based, and hybrid resources. You’ll learn how to help customers overcome their most difficult challenges in Cloud migration from an experienced team. You’ll work with your customer and migration teams to ensure standards are met as you guide them through Cloud migration. 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 build your experience in Cloud-based solutions, security, and hosting interactive Artificial Intelligence powered solutions while developing critical systems for DoD customers and other clients. We focus on growing as a team to make the best solutions for our customers, so you’ll have resources for mentoring and learning new skills and tools.
