Cloud 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 and services. What if you could use your cloud architecture skills to improve warfighter Intelligence, Surveillance, and Reconnaissance (ISR) analyst capabilities and communications systems? We need you to lead our team as we develop cloud-based solutions to some of the Air Force’s toughest challenges. 

As a cloud architect on our team, you’ll build, operate and maintain hybrid cloud capabilities.  You’ll manage and communicate risk, utilizing your ability to strategically think, develop plans and orchestrate execution. You’ll collaborate with your team as we research the current environment and recommend tools and capabilities from various on premise, cloud based, and hybrid resources. You’ll share expertise with your teammates as we help the customer overcome their most difficult challenges in the cloud. Your technical expertise will be vital as you work with the Air Force 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 and services. You’ll be able to sharpen your skills in computer programming and scripting languages while developing critical systems for the Air Force. As a technical expert, you’ll identify new opportunities to build cloud-based solutions to help our client meet their evolving needs. Join our team, as we transform warfighter ISR capabilities and communications systems with cloud technology.
