Cloud Solutions Architect, 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. We need you to help us develop cloud-based solutions to some of the DoD’s toughest challenges.

As a cloud architect on our team, you’ll lead the way in innovative solutions across Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and private cloud solutions that will better enable the warfighter to turn data into decisions.  You’ll also tackle enterprise problems around security, connectivity, and operations. You’ll recommend tools and capabilities based on your research of the current environment and knowledge of various on premise, cloud based, and hybrid resources. You’ll lead your team as they help the customer overcome their most difficult challenges in the cloud. Your technical expertise will be vital as you work with customers, stakeholders, and multi-functional 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. You’ll be able to sharpen your skills in Infrastructure-as-Code, Policy-as-Code, DevSecOps, and Kubernetes-based platforms while developing critical systems for the DoD. 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 the mission with cloud technology.
