Cloud Architect, Mid

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 how our uniformed armed services consume, analyze, and respond to data. We need you to help us develop Cloud-based solutions to some of our government’s toughest challenges.

As a Cloud architect on our team, you’ll be designing the future of how our clients conduct their mission critical operations in a secure and cost-efficient manner. 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 DoD mission partners 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 automation, Cloud-based security, and enterprise data architecture while developing critical systems for the DoD. 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. Join our team as we transform how our uniformed armed services consume, analyze, and respond to data with Cloud technology.
