As a Staff Infrastructure Engineer, you will create innovative public and private cloud solutions in Amazon Web Services (AWS). As one of the team, you will be engaged in design and implementation efforts, and you will directly be involved in the successful automated deployment of solutions that meet our customers’ business objectives. You will also architect solutions that meet high-performance and scalability requirements. Your contribution matters! Meeting the customer’s objectives is no easy task, but you possess strong hands-on experience and a wide range of enterprise infrastructure, cloud, and high-performance computing technologies to get the job done. You will have a flexible working schedule working from home and our Herndon office if desired.
We emphasize a culture of respect, trust, and growth: you will feel comfortable sharing and receiving ideas with your teammates, and through our shared experience, we all become better developers and mentors. We don't need you to be the best at everything but expect that you will never settle for not-knowing, will take pride in your code, and never turn on career cruise control.
We are NOT a "work hard, play hard" group. We are a "work smart" group, and you can play how you like on your own time.
