Cloud DevOps Engineering

Location: Fulton, MD

About Us: Engineers solving real-world problems

Disrupt traditional software development in the DoD and help shape the future of DoD software development using AWS. You will be working inside USCYBERCOM with the team architecting, building, and sustaining Unclassified and Classified AWS development environments for USCYBERCOM and its service developer partners. This effort affords all team members the unique opportunity of working with bleeding edge cloud computing technologies in a multitude of environments and Amazon Web Services regions. We are the sole integrator on this effort and will be implementing the full stack including networking, AWS deployment, security, integration with other DoD entities, and more. Stratus Solutions is also in the unique position of having been the lead integrator of similar cloud-centric solutions for other government clients and has access to a collaborative staff of cloud computing SMEs for knowledge transfer and support throughout the company.  

Your Mission: Expand your cloud DevOps skillset with exposure to Amazon Web Services (AWS).

Enhance your current DevOps skillset by disrupting traditional workflows and processes using AWS technologies. You will be an integral part of a team of knowledgeable technologists responsible for helping to build a nationwide cloud presence within the DoD for unclassified software development. This is a multi-faceted position requiring you to spend time working directly with AWS services, and the underlying operating systems themselves, to efficiently improve security automations, aid collaboration efforts with software engineers, and streamline infrastructure processes.

A day in the life: (just a few of the things you may do on any given day)

  • Interact with various operating systems, applications, environments, and cloud computing platforms to create IT automation and orchestration activities
  • Use open source technologies and tools to accomplish specific use cases encountered within the project
  • Use coding languages or scripting methodologies to solve a problem with a custom workflow
  • Collaborate with others on the project to brainstorm about the best way to tackle a complex technological infrastructure, security, or development problem
  • Perform incremental testing actions on code, processes, and deployments to identify ways to streamline execution and minimize errors encountered

You will excel in this role if you are:

  • Embracing Emerging Technology: You will leverage AWS and its accompanying tools daily as you help build and stand up a game-changing development environment.
  • Well-rounded: You will need to bring in-depth experience across multiple technologies including scripting, development/test/QA tools, cloud, container, and orchestration tools, Linux and Windows operating systems, networking, security and automation.
  • Motivated: You want to continually learn new things and work with new technologies.
  • Agile: Able to work as part of small team working together to develop a solution for both commercial and government customers.
  • Focused on Automation: Wherever possible, you look for ways to automate manual processes to increase efficiency, speed, and operability of tasks.

What we are expecting from you (i.e. the qualifications you must have):

  • Significant experience with Windows and Linux operating system environments.
  • Expertise with Linux configuration management and system administration.
  • Experience with infrastructure scripting solutions such as PowerShell or Python.
  • Excellent oral and written communication skills with a keen sense of customer service.
  • Excellent problem solving and troubleshooting skills.
  • Process oriented with great documentation skills.

Nice to have:

  • AWS experience preferred, but not mandatory. At a minimum, you should have an understanding/ knowledge of AWS architectures, capabilities, and services
  • AWS Solutions Architect, Developer, or SysOps Administrator Associate Certification
  • Familiarity with agile software development in Go, C/C++, Java, Python, or JavaScript.
  • Experience administering and deploying development CI/CD tools such as Git, Jira, GitLab, or Jenkins.
  • BS in Computer Science, IT, IS, or equivalent area of technical study (An additional 4 years of IT experience can substitute for a BS Degree)
  • Experience with Microsoft Azure cloud services

What We Will Provide In Return:

  • Excellent compensation, amazing benefits including top of the line BCBS PPO coverage with ZERO deductibles. We pay for 100% of the employee premium and cover 90% of your dependent’s premium.  
  • 10% 401K employer contribution with no employee contribution required.
  • Generous paid time off that includes sick, vacation and floating holidays as well as the ability to bank overtime hours for additional time off or extra compensation (must met additional criteria for cash-out).
  • Employee centric culture and a belief that we should those who are good at what they do and then give them the tools the need to achieve success and grow their career. 
  • A commitment to learning and growth and easy ways to achieve both including a training budget, education assistance, mentorship programs and collaborative learning sessions. 
  • A collaborative environment that fosters communication via slack, internal messaging boards and email lists, our employee newsletter and an open door policy.
