Cloud and Infrastructure Technical Lead

The Challenge:

Are you looking for an opportunity to make a difference in the federal government? What if you could find a position that is tailor-made 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 the federal government who need them to solve the toughest challenges. 

As a lead DevOps engineer on our team, you’ll use your development experience to streamline our software development lifecycle from requirements to monitoring in production. You’ll lead efforts to 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 broaden your skillset into areas like Cloud computing, automation, SecDevOps, CI/CD, Infrastructure as Code, and containerization, and you’ll help identify new opportunities to build Cloud-based solutions to help your customers meet their evolving needs. Join our team as we transform how the GSA modernizes how to deliver goods and services across all of the federal government with Cloud technology.
