DevOps Engineer

The Opportunity:

Are you looking for an opportunity to make a difference? 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 automate security and operational activities to improve the resiliency and security of Cloud-hosted networks and systems. Join us to create new solutions that drive the innovation our clients need to change the world.


As a DevOps engineer on our team, you'll use your development experience to streamline our software development life cycle for Cloud-based platforms. Support the development of secure cloud platforms from the base network infrastructures to the operational tasks and security guardrails we build for end-users. You'll lead efforts to incorporate open-source tools, automation, and cloud resources to cut down on tedious, boring tasks and free up our team to do what they do best – innovate. You'll implement continuous integration and delivery to limit manual testing and troubleshooting. Leverage expertise in Cloud architectural constructs as well as Cloud-specific technologies to establish and maintain Cloud environments programmatically. Together, through our collective ingenuity, we will develop creative solutions to our clients' complex problems. As a technical leader, you'll identify new opportunities to build software solutions to help your customers meet their toughest challenges. This position is open to remote delivery anywhere within the U.S., to include the District of Columbia.
