Cloud Platform Engineer, Senior

The Challenge:

Are you looking for an opportunity to not just develop software, but to build a system that will help drive modernization initiatives to support national security? As a cloud platform developer, you can help build a next-generation cloud computing platform in a fast-paced, agile environment. We’re looking for a developer with the advanced skills to provide system integration support and develop software services via Docker containers in a Kubernetes environment using DevOps principles. These software services will be built using open source and GOTS code bases and will be extended or configured to meet client-specific environment and deployment needs.

This role is more than just coding. We need an engineer who will use their passion to learn new tools and techniques, identify and implement system improvements, and mentor teammates. Using sound software engineering principles, you'll ensure that all developed software is modifiable, efficient, reliable, understandable, and fault tolerant. You'll provide training, consulting support, or implementation guidance to other efforts seeking to fit their systems for use on Kubernetes. You’ll analyze the needs and the environment to make sure the solution you’re developing considers the current architecture and operating environment as well as future functionality and enhancements. Join us as we build systems to change our client's mission for the better.
