DevOps Engineer, Mid

The Challenge: 

Are you looking for an opportunity to make a difference across multiple agencies within 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, a DevOps Engineer, to help us shorten the time it takes to get critical tools developed and into the hands of end users who need them.  

As a DevOps engineer on our team, you’ll use your development experience to streamline our software development life cycle from requirements to monitoring in production. You’ll build the architecture and design of modern Zero Trust security solutions for DoD, federal, and commercial clients. You’ll design and deploy dynamically scalable, highly available, fault-tolerant, and reliable security solutions on premise and in the Cloud. You’ll build the foundation for conducting machine learning and artificial intelligence across organizations delivering cybersecurity to critical workloads. You’ll 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 build your experience in cloud-based development while developing software that will improve the federal government. Join our team as we build tools to transform the future. This position is a hybrid role with a combination of working at a Booz Allen office or client site and working remotely.
