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 improve Air Force and DoD communications? We need you to lead our team as we develop cloud based solutions to some of Air Force toughest challenges.

As a Lead Cloud Architect on our team, you’ll work directly with clients and leaders to plan and design cloud based solutions. 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 high performing technical teams to ensure standards are met 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. As a technical leader, you’ll identify new opportunities to build cloud based solutions to help your customers meet their evolving needs.
