    Our technologically sophisticated SecDevOps team is hiring!


    We are a small team comprised of developers, engineers, and data scientists who are responsible for building and maintaining cutting-edge solutions for a fantastic Government client.  We're looking to add a fourth member to our team who would primarily be responsible for authoring and automating all the components required to bring our projects into production.


    We use Ansible, Terraform, and AWS daily and are happy to fill in any experience gaps, provided we find the right candidate passionate about automation and development.


    Being a small team, we are looking for self-starters who can work independently don't need direction on the small details.

    • Elasticsearch/Logstash/Kibana:  In your free time maybe you've spun up a small ELK cluster with Docker. Awesome! We'd love to have you.


    • Application Development:  You may not be the next Richard Stallman, but have you written anything that you are proud of and want to talk about? The choice of language doesn't matter, and it doesn't matter if it is scripted or compiled. Let's geek out over what you've created and any problems you had writing it.
