Cloud/Platform Engineer, Lead

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 both hybrid, 3rd party, and external 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 deliver a platform to enable modernization of a DoD client's network systems.

As a Platform Engineer on our team, you'll leverage expertise in command-line interfaces (CLI) and 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, private cloud, public cloud, and hybrid resources. You'll work with the client's migration teams and Cloud architects to implement strategy and architecture design. Additionally, you will lead the planning, designing and deployment of hybrid on-premise and cloud architecture solutions for use in a next-gen platform enabling data science and advanced analytics applications.

You will be working with a data engineering team to develop database architectures and technology stacks which are scalable, cost-effective, stable, and leverage cloud architectures, serving as a subject matter expert in the migration of on-premise applications into a cloud-based Kubernetes environment, collaborating with data science teams to design solutions using cloud native technologies that enable their services to be programmatically accessible in a reliable fashion by their customers, and coaching and mentoring junior and senior developers on how to develop high-quality code and innovate using the latest cloud technologies.

This is an opportunity to stay on top of the latest Cloud technologies as you prototype using multiple techniques and new technologies. You'll be able to gain and expand upon experience in designing Cloud architectures while providing critical support to the client's mission. Join our team as we transform the client's critical infrastructure by delivering a cutting-edge platform that leverages a broad-based suite of technologies, including public, private, and hybrid Cloud, analytics, data science, and enabling software packages.
