This group creates, expands, and maintains environments tailored to each individual team's needs, incorporating more AWS, virtualization, DevOps automation, and scalability.

This super smart team doesn't draw any distinctions between government staffers and contractors - everyone is an expert in something, and this collaborative group feeds off each other, learns together, and continually explores new technologies. Our client's lead said "Interesting people, interesting work, and immense learning - I feel like a won a prize being able to work here!". The team is also modern in its approach, with Sprint planning, metrics gathering, and self-aware reviews of how work is done. This can become a wonderful home for all sorts of skilled experts, such as those with specializations in DevOps Automation, Virtualization, Hybrid Cloud Integration, Cloud Architecture, and Infrastructure Scaling. Work locations are in Northern VA, and all roles require US citizenship and a current TS/SCI + FS Poly clearance.<br /> <br /> cjobs-cat:"IT - Software"<br /> <br /> 11923 Stanleyreid Herndon VA
