Cloud Architect

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 healthcare industry? We need you to help us develop Cloud-based solutions to some of the DoD’s toughest challenges. 

As a Cloud architect, you’ll oversee infrastructure design and develop detailed architecture models. 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 lead your team as they help the customer overcome their most difficult challenges in the Cloud. Your technical expertise will be vital as you work with our Air Force partner 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 customers environment using current Cloud capabilities. You’ll sharpen your skills in Cloud platforms and infrastructure architecture and develop critical systems. Join our team as we transform the Air Force Distributed Common Ground System (AF DCGS) within and across the DoD.
