Do you have experience implementing Development and Operations (DevOps) in a collaborative environment?  Have you gained insight into the success and challenges with DevOps approaches?  Would you like to educate and influence how the Government can utlize DevOps in the Intelligence Community?

Be a part of a dynamic team helping customers transition to DevOps, utilizing agile engineering and acquisition practices while delivering real mission capabilities. Join the SIGINT ground team in solving technical challenges and driving mission thread acquisitions to closure. This position will serve as a DevOps/Agile Systems Engineer Technical Assistant (SETA) conducting oversight and evaluation of developers' DevOps/Agile processes and deliveries. The SETA candidate will help transition SIGINT ground programs from traditional waterfall to DevOps/Agile processes. Also, the SETA will provide recommendations for DevOps/Agile process improvements and/or efficiencies while working with the SIGINT ground Acquisition Offices (AOs) and operational users of the systems. The candidate will also support SIGINT ground initiatives for future systems through lifecycle acquisition and readiness events. The candidate will help the customer transition to acquisitions leveraging DevOps/Agile principles to define capability roadmaps, epics, solutions/portfolios and features necessary to prioritize developer backlogs in alignment with capability deliveries to operations. The candidate will support DevOps/Agile best practices on teams coordinating CONOPS and architecture products, establishing and translating requirements into features, assessing system and segment schedule and risks, leading readiness and release planning events in support of system and acquisition-level ground milestones, and supporting agile test and DevOps verification strategies and integration of new systems and initiatives in support of expanded SIGINT mission capabilities. 

The selected candidate will have the aptitude to assess DevOps/Agile and SE processes and create efficiencies continuously, and may lead projects for systems team work, have frequent client interactions (with GPOC customers, COTRs/AOs, and developers), and support system and mission strategy development across the various ground offices.

This position requires an understanding of the intelligence community and customer domain, along with a strong focus on core systems engineering processes in support of end-to-end mission and services closure.
