Job Summary

A classified site reliability engineer designs and participates in the implementation of an environment where many Linux or Windows systems are configured and sustained through largely automated processes and tools to meet challenging engineering requirements. Automation is performed through infrastructure-as-code (IaC) technologies. The implemented environment and tools help to ensure the systems are properly hardened, achieve accreditation, and retain that accreditation throughout their lifecycle. The person filling this role works with other corporate information technology (IT) teams and engineers to develop and maintain scientific and engineering workloads on-premises and in the cloud in support of mission success for critical national space assets.

  • Strong written and oral communication skills
  • Must possess strong organizational and time management skills
  • Demonstrated flexibility and ability to adapt to changing organizational needs
  • Strong sense of ownership, customer service, and integrity

How You Can Stand Out

It would be impressive if you have one or more of these:

  • Current TS/SCI clearance with SSBI and CI polygraph 
  • BS degree in Computer Science/Engineering/IT or equivalent experience 
  • Minimum of 5 years of experience supporting an enterprise-scale Linux or Windows environment that includes NFS or Windows file system shares and Active Directory integration.
