Cloud Engineer, Senior

The Challenge:

We have the technology, but do we know how to use it? In an industry where “cloud” is sometimes synonymous with “genie,” it’s important to have someone on your team who knows how to engineer hybrid, on-premise, and cloud-based solutions. That’s why we need you, an engineer who knows how hardware and software components fit together and integrate with cloud-based resources, to help us modernize the DoD's

Unclassified Information Sharing System and All Partners Access Network. As a cloud engineer on our team, you’ll support efforts to for the engineering and development of Cloud solutions architecture and design patterns to meet technical requirements within the DoD’s architecture. You will serve as a hands-on Cloud engineer and leverage expertise in designing and building enterprise systems with a focus on Cloud migration and AWS solutions. You’ll contribute to enhancements of the unclassified environments, services and capabilities based on your research of the current environment and various on-premise, cloud-based, and hybrid resources. You’ll work with our DoD Client and stakeholders to inform strategy and architecture design. This is an opportunity to work with the latest cloud resources as you learn prototyping using multiple techniques and new technologies.
