The Challenge:

Everyone is trying to “harness the power of the cloud,” but not everyone knows how. As a cloud computing application architect, you know how to build a cloud-based technical architecture that meets client needs and takes advantage of cloud capabilities.

We need you to help us develop cloud-based solutions for some of our client's toughest challenges.

On our team, you’ll design, define, develop and debug cloud solution components. This is an opportunity to use the latest cloud technologies as you look for ways to improve your client’s environment using current cloud capabilities. Your technical expertise will be vital as you work with your client to inform strategy and design and ensure standards are met throughout the cloud migration process. You’ll recommend tools and solutions 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 client overcome their most difficult challenges in the cloud. This position is open to remote delivery anywhere within the U.S., to include the District of Columbia.
