DevSecOps Engineer, Lead

The Challenge:

Are you looking for an opportunity to make a difference in IT? What if you could find a position that is tailor made for your mix of development, engineering, and communication skills? Efficient software development teams make the most of their time by limiting the activities that take developers away from writing their code. That’s why we need you, an experienced DevOps engineer, to help us shorten the time it takes to get critical tools developed and into the hands of policy makers who need them to make positive change.

As a lead DevOps engineer on our team, you’ll use your development experience to streamline our software development lifecycle from requirements to monitoring in production across multiple teams. You’ll lead efforts to incorporate open source tools, automation, and cloud resources to cut down on tedious, boring tasks and free up the team’s developers to do what they do best – innovate. You’ll implement continuous integration and delivery to limit manual testing and troubleshooting. This is an opportunity to broaden your skillset into areas like automation and cloud based development, while leading software development efforts to impact national affairs. As a technical leader, you’ll identify new opportunities to build software solutions to help your customers meet their toughest challenges. Join our team as we build tools to transform the future of IT.
