Your combination of people skills and technical expertise makes you the team hero, solving one problem after another. What if you could use those skills to improve the technology supporting the DoD? We’re looking for a systems administrator to maintain responsibility for systems administration activities. Assign personnel to various projects, direct activities, and evaluate work. Ensure long-term requirements of systems operations and administration are included in overall information systems organization planning. You would help us build, maintain, and secure environments while troubleshooting complex problems for our clients in the Cloud.

As a Systems Administrator on our project, you’ll support client systems operations, including server maintenance, incident response, security evaluation, operations automation, database administration, user support, and cloud system maintenance. Support security maintenance activities to ensure compliance. Maintain responsibility for security scans, patches, and vulnerability assessments. You’ll learn how to help customers overcome tough challenges through monitoring and performance management. You’ll analyze problem areas and opportunities for improvement in a mission-critical network. You’ll be able to combine your technical experience with communication skills as you turn metrics into information and communicate their meaning. This is an opportunity to gain experience in technologies such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Apache, Big IP F5, IIS, RedHat 7-8, Splunk, and Windows 2012-2019. You’ll also have the chance to learn key skills in the ever-changing cloud environment, such as automation, communication, security implementation, and scripting. We focus on growing as a team, so we’ll share techniques, work through challenges, and develop new methodologies. Join our team and solve daily challenges as we improve our current Cloud computing environments and build out others for DoD customers across multiple military branches.
