What You’ll Be Doing
Architect, automate, test, deploy, and maintain a well-designed and highly available cloud infrastructure in AWS GovCloud with a focus on security and compliance for SOC2, NIST 800-171, NIST 800-53, and FedRAMP Medium controls.
You will own the cloud infrastructure and its direction. You will help architect secure ingress and egress to customer and vendor data centers in a multi and single-tenant environment. As the team is developing, you will also provide best practices for availability, latency, and performance of services.
Some of your responsibilities will include incident management, supporting a 24/7 on call rotation, and technical troubleshooting of complex enterprise systems. Ideally the system you create alleviates the necessity for action.
You will be a part of the engineering team of frontend and backend engineers working in an Agile Scrum environment.
