Full Job Description
Are you looking for an opportunity to make a difference in Government IT? What if you could find a position that is tailor made for your mix of development, engineering, and communication skills? Efficient software development teams make the most of their time by limiting the activities that take developers away from writing their code. That’s why we need you, an experienced DevOps engineer, to help us shorten the time it takes to get critical tools developed and into the hands of analysts, warfighters and policy makers who need them to change the world.
As a DevOps engineer on our team, you’ll use your development experience to streamline our software development lifecycle from requirements to monitoring in production. You’ll incorporate open source tools, automation, and cloud resources to cut down on tedious, boring tasks and free up the team’s developers to do what they do best – innovate. You’ll implement continuous integration and delivery to limit manual testing and troubleshooting. This is an opportunity to build your experience in implementing a Pipeline that can be triggered on new code being deployed or to scale the system in response to increased user/data demands while developing software that will transform how our clients receive and use intelligence data. Join our team as we build tools to transform the future of Government IT.
