Solutions Architect

The Challenge:

At a certain point, experience-based system design can start to look like clairvoyance. When you’ve developed so many systems that you can not only orchestrate the best solution for any technology-based challenge, but you can also anticipate and preempt future issues, you’re a systems architect. You’ve evolved your skills into strategy through a long path of software development accomplishments and the curiosity to understand how all of the pieces of an IT ecosystem fit together. Are you ready to use your combination of knowledge, skill, and experience to tackle the toughest challenges in the civilian sector?

As a systems architect on our team, you'll translate our customer’s IT and cybersecurity needs along with future goals into a plan. Through your leadership, we’ll help transform the way DOL uses technology, including Cloud migration, integrating advanced technology, and modernizing legacy systems. Be part of a team to support development and O&M of Web-based software applications using Agile software development methodology in a Cloud-based environment. You'll work closely with systems engineers, developers, testers, information security engineers, user experience and interface engineers, and database developers in supporting the software development cycle from requirements gathering, architecture, and design development through testing and deployment. You'll work with the development team to ensure the design is understood and implemented as intended. And, what do you do next in a career where you’ve reached this level? You mentor the next set of developers to help them grow into tomorrow’s systems architects. Join us and build the future of technology in the civilian sector for the better.
