  • Participating in a daily stand-up meeting to report your accomplishments, plans for the day, and any roadblocks you encountered. Your team will do the same, giving you an opportunity to understand and contribute to other ongoing initiatives.

  • Occasionally presenting to your team or our software developer colleagues, on DevOps best practices, new and interesting cloud technologies, and ways you approached and solved challenging technical issues during our Tech Talks webinar series.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:

  • BA/BS or equivalent and 20 years related experience or a MS and 18 years of experience.

  • Minimum of five years of experience with AWS to include working knowledge of commonly used AWS services, such as Lambda, IAM, VPC, S3, EC2, CloudWatch and CloudTrail, Guard Duty, Route 53, RDS, and SSM

  • Minimum of eight years of experience deploying, configuring, and securing infrastructure in a large enterprise environment.

  • Experience applying and defining policies for AWS accounts to establish governance using AWS Organizations and Config, including writing custom Config Rules.

  • Working knowledge of infrastructure-as-codetools such as Terraform or CloudFormation to include writing templates and modules from scratch.

  • Hands-on experience with scripting languages, such as Ruby, JavaScript/Typescript, Python , Perl, Tcl, and /or Unix Shell.

  • Knowledge of Docker and hands-on experience in containerizing software applications; experience working with container orchestration and deployment platforms such as Kubernetes, AWS EKS or AWS ECS.

  • Experience with implementing and managing CI/CD workflows using Jenkins, GitHub Actions, AWS CodeBuild, GoCD or similar tools.

  • Experience using and managing Linux distributions including RedHat, CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, or CoreOS/Flatcar.

  • Experience analyzing solutions components, understanding systems integration challenges, and identifying technology gaps in current components that must be resolved to reach future performance targets and functionality requirements in cloud infrastructure.

  • Ability to obtain and maintain a Public Trust security clearance level
