Cloud Security Engineer, Senior

The Challenge:

We have the technology, but do we know how to use it? In an industry where “cloud” is sometimes synonymous with “genie,” it’s important to have someone on your team who knows how to engineer cloud based and hybrid on-premise/cloud-based solutions. That’s why we need you, an engineer who knows how hardware and software components fit together and integrate with cloud-based resources, to help us modernize mission critical systems.

As a Cloud engineer on our team, you’ll build a secure, cloud-based communications network to support mission critical 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 work with cloud architects to inform strategy and architecture design. This is an opportunity to stay on top of the latest cloud resources as you lead efforts to prototype using multiple techniques and new technologies. you’ll be able to broaden your skillset into areas like DevSecOps while developing critical systems for the DoD. Join our team as we transform government systems by taking advantage of cloud technology.
