Cloud Application Architect
Everyone is trying to “harness the power of the cloud,” but not everyone knows how. 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 support engaging client missions? We need you to help us develop cloud-based solutions for some of the toughest challenges supporting our National Space market.
On our team, you’ll architect, build, and manage cloud environments to support mission-critical systems. This is an opportunity to use the latest cloud technologies as you look for ways to improve your client’s environment using cloud capabilities. Your technical expertise will be vital as you work with your team and the National Space client to inform strategy and design and ensure standards are met throughout the cloud migration process. You’ll recommend tools and solutions based on your research of the environment and knowledge of various on-premise, cloud-based, and hybrid resources. You’ll lead your team as they help the client overcome their most difficult challenges in the cloud. Additionally, you’ll broaden your skillset in areas such as cloud computing, virtualization, and containers, while developing critical systems for our National Space client.
