Data Platform and Cloud Solution Engineer, Senior

The Challenge:

Everyone is trying to “harness the power of the cloud,” but not everyone knows how to do so at scale. As a cloud computing application architect, you know how to build a cloud-based technical architecture that meets client needs and takes advantage of cloud capabilities. What if you could use your cloud architecture skills to improve data analytics platforms for the DoD? We need you to help us develop cloud-based solutions for some of the DoD's toughest data analytics challenges.

On our team, you’ll create and evolve a highly-visible data analytics platform across all networks, using the latest cloud and vendor technologies as you look for ways to improve your client’s environments. You’ll lead efforts to incorporate open source tools, automation, cloud resources, Infrastructure as Code (IAC), and Security Orchestration Automation and Response (SOAR) to cut down on tedious, boring tasks and free up the team to do what they do best – innovate. Your technical expertise will be vital as you work with our other teams to inform strategy and design, ensuring standards are met throughout the cloud evolution process. You’ll recommend tools and solutions based on your research of the current environment and knowledge of various on premise, cloud based, and hybrid resources. You’ll also have leadership opportunities as your team helps the client overcome their most difficult challenges in the cloud. This is an opportunity to broaden your skill set into areas like agile development, cloud-based development, containerization, and serverless while providing data analytics capabilities that will improve national security. As a technical engineer, you’ll identify new opportunities to build state-of-the-art data analytics and immutable architectures to help your customers meet their toughest challenges. Join our team as we build tools to transform the future of the DoD.
