Microservices Developer

We are looking for a Microservice Developer to take a key role in our drive to modernize software development within the DoD. You’ll help us develop some seriously advanced military tech. We’re developing advanced microservice-based that will revolutionize the complex systems of warfare and make them more agile and responsive. As part of a digital strike team, you will help design and execute rapid software development projects to meet critical mission needs.

With a strong path for professional growth, you will use modern technologies (i.e. Kubernetes, Helm, Message Queues, Istio, Protobuf) and practices to work with a small, dedicated team on building a new software architecture. In this role, you will utilize DevSecOps to help build advanced microservice-based architectures for mission-critical systems. This new project has plenty of room for you to be creative and innovative. (There's no maintaining someone else's legacy code here!) Our on-site team utilizes modern development practices to engage with our client on highly specialized (and interesting) problems. We value beautiful, well-tested, high-quality code. We leverage automation wherever possible.

The right candidate is ready to step in and grow themselves. We are looking for a well-rounded software engineer, well-versed in solid design principles, and ready to hit the ground running designing and implementing advanced software.

In this role, you will utilize DevSecOps to help build advanced microservice-based architectures for mission-critical systems. This is an exciting and dynamic role. And if you are the kind of engineer whose passion is apparent and thrives in an ever-changing environment, we should talk.
