Our client's Network Analytics and Cyber Defense program, which they have been priming for nearly 10 years, is growing. This program utilizes Data Science and Automation to detect network anomalies and potential threats to one of the largest networks in the world - nearly 13% of the entire internet, supporting DoD and the warfighter efforts. Work involves automating and improving existing systems and processes, setting up DevOps solutions to better support teams and workflows, and crafting state-of-the-art solutions to a wide range of technical problems for programs and projects for clients and internal customers. New threats emerge constantly, so the work is always new and interesting. This is a rare "zero drama" team where our client and the customer have high collaboration, and where team members support knowledge and skill growth in each other.
Our client is seeking a IT/DevOps Administrator with AWS experience to join this team and to also support their internal product engineering team with DevOps Automation and IT best practices. Compensation includes a strong base salary (up to 125K range), performance bonus up to 6% of salary, 6 weeks PTO (includes holidays), 401(k) ranging from 3% - 6% (typically 6%), full benefits plan, paid training, and other benefits.
