Cloud 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 and 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 a DoD client's network system.

As a Cloud Engineer on our team, you'll leverage expertise in Cloud command-line interfaces (CLI) and Cloud SDKs 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 the client's migration teams and Cloud architects to implement strategy and architecture design. This is an opportunity to stay on top of the latest Cloud resources as you prototype using multiple techniques and new technologies. You'll be able to gain experience in designing Cloud architectures while providing critical support to the client's mission. Join our team as we transform the client's critical Cloud infrastructure by taking advantage of Cloud technology.

Empower change with us.
