Job Description

General Duties:

The objective is to fully automate the software processes that build, test, harden, package, and deploy applications across multiple cloud platforms (AWS GovCloud, SC2S, C2S). The result is an enterprise-wide DevOps pipeline that delivers mission functionality to operational environments. While the tasking is remote (i.e., work from home), on site work for at least one to two days a week will be required.

Work will include researching new technologies, implementing new solutions, and providing recommendations to reduce program risk / cost.

  • 1+ years working within Linux (e.g., Red Hat, CentOS) environments
  • 1+ years supporting AWS environments and native services (S3, SQS, EC2, IAM)
  • Experience with automation technologies such as Puppet, Ansible, Chef, Jenkins or Gitlab Pipelines
  • Must possess ability to work independently in a fast-paced, dynamic environment
  • Must be a team player who understands the importance of teamwork, collaboration, and open communication, including a willingness to occasionally work in a pair-programming environment
  • Must possess strong analytical and technical documentation skills
  • Must possess ability to effectively present information and respond to questions
  • Must have hands-on experience with design and development best practices

Desired Skills:

  • Experience working with containers (i.e. Docker) and orchestration (i.e. Kubernetes)
  • Familiarity with the DoD Risk Management Framework (RMF)
  • Familiarity with industry standard commodity hardware for information systems (servers, storage, network devices)
  • Familiarity with industry standard software products (operating systems, hypervisors, databases, and web servers)

Education/Experience Level:

  • Bachelor s Degree in computer science, related field, or equivalent work experience
  • Certifications Required: None, but AWS certifications are highly desirable
