Cloud Engineer, Senior

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 deliver mission critical data to the warfighter? We need you to lead our team as we develop cloud-based solutions to some of the DoD's toughest challenges.

As a lead cloud architect on our team, you’ll design a secure, cloud-based text analytics platform to support mission critical operations. You’ll guide your team as they research the current environment and recommend tools and capabilities from various on premise, cloud based, and hybrid resources. You’ll share expertise with your team through leadership and mentoring, as they help the customer overcome their most difficult challenges in the cloud. Your technical expertise will be vital as you work with migration teams to develop and re-platform existing capabilities and build new ones throughout the cloud migration process. 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 sharpen your skills in automation, cloud-based security, native cloud services, and more, while developing critical systems for the DoD and IC. As a technical leader, you’ll identify new opportunities to build cloud-based solutions to help your customers meet their evolving needs. Join our team, as we transform warfighter and law enforcement systems with cloud technology.
