Raytheon is the prime contractor for the Air Operations Center Weapon System Long -Term Modification and Sustainment (AOC WS LTM&S) Team providing the sustainment and transformation for the Air Force Weapon System. Our technology stack is always evolving and right now we're keenly focused on developing and exposing managed services to internal users through self-service management APIs built on top of our existing internal PaaS services. Using public cloud is pretty cool, but if you're up for building services that compete with public cloud and running on the world's most interesting hybrid cloud come join us! We have small teams, we move fast and we're offering and building on top of managed services that take advantage of industry best practices and open source solutions.

As a DevOps engineer in the System Security and Communication (SysComm) team, you can play a major part in this effort to evolve the AOC WS platform and enable our strategy for creating highly inventive technology solutions for our Airmen. This job requires a developer who is focused on operations and ensuring our managed services rarely need any humans involved to keep them running and maintained. There is a large gap between setting up an open source system once and making that system reliable and available instantly at the click of a button or via an API call.

As a DevOps Engineer, you'll be responsible for:

* Becoming a subject matter expert (SME) for several internal, distributed and managed services
* Automating the installation, configuration and maintenance of services on the AOC WS platform
* Managing system-level performance tuning to optimize for reliability and efficiency
* Guiding software releases and activations for new features and platform configurations while prioritizing system reliability
* Supporting users by consulting on their designs and guiding their use of the AOC WS hybrid cloud

Part of our AOC WS Engineering Services organization, the DevOps SysComm team is in charge of developing global managed services for use by internal teams for economically deploying highly scalable products. These systems operate behind the scenes to secure our network, help application product teams bring their latest ideas to the field faster and provide the fault-tolerant and highly-scalable core of the AOC WS platform as a service for internal users.

This position requires the ability to obtain a US Government Secret security clearance.

Required Skills:

* Experience installing, configuring, and administrating Linux systems
* Experience with scripting languages such as Python, Go or bash
* Experience with DevOps CI/CD software release tools (e.g. Jenkins, Travis, gitlab ci)
* Experience with container technology and microservices (Kubernetes or Istio)
* Experience with different service models (e.g. IaaS, PaaS, SaaS, Serverless) hosted in cloud environments
* Ability to obtain and maintain a US Government Secret security clearance

Desired Skills:

* Experience with deployment/configuration management tools (e.g. Ansible, Puppet, Chef, fabric)
* Experience with Monitoring/Logging/Performance Analytics (e.g.. Logstash/Kibana, DataDog, Splunk, FluentD)
* Experience operating fault-tolerant distributed systems (e.g. Redundancy, Availability Zones, Data Reliability)
* Experience with SQL and noSQL database technologies such as PostgreSQL, Redis, Kafka, or Cassandra
* Experience with AWS or Azure or Oracle Cloud or equivalent technologies (e.g. EC2, EBS, RDS, Elasticache, Kinesis)
* Existing US Government Secret security clearance


Requires a degree in Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM) and 4 years of related work experience.
