DevOps Task Lead

The Challenge:

Are you looking for an opportunity to make a difference in law enforcement? What if you could find a tailor-made position 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 shorten the time it takes to get critical tools developed and into the hands of investigators and analysts who need them to protect children, detect human trafficking, disrupt transnational crime, and other missions.

As a DevOps engineer on our team, you’ll use your development experience to streamline our software development life cycle from requirements to monitoring in production. You’ll incorporate open source tools, automation, and Cloud resources to cut down on tedious, boring tasks and free up the team’s developers to do what they do best – innovate. You’ll implement continuous integration and delivery to limit manual testing and troubleshooting. This is an opportunity to build your experience in Amazon Web Services (AWS), OpenShift, infrastructure as code, and Big Data administration while developing software that will help solve criminal problems. Join our team as we build tools to transform the future of law enforcement.
