1385- Cloud Architect

Northern, Virginia


Alexandria, McLean, Chantilly, Washington DC

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/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 lead our client’s IT modernization.
As a cloud engineer on our team, you’ll design and implement modern, scalable, secure, and resilient systems that support both the business mission area and soldiers in the field. 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 customers, solution architects, software developers, and infrastructure engineers to inform strategy and architecture design. This is an opportunity to stay on top of the latest cloud resources as you lead efforts to prototype using multiple techniques and new technologies. You’ll be able to broaden your skillset into areas like DevSecOps, Containerization, GovCloud, Cybersecurity, and more. Join our team as we transform our clients modeling and simulation solutions and immersive AR/VR by taking advantage of cloud technology.
