JAVA Software Developers with AWS (Clearance Sponsorship Available)
Req #: 222850
Location: Fairfax, VA US
Job Category: Information Technology
Minimum Security Clearance: TS/SCI with Polygraph
CACI is seeking JAVA Software Developers with AWS who are currently cleared with TS/SCI w/poly OR who are a US Citizen and willing to complete the clearance sponsorship process. Our work sites are generally in the Reston & Chantilly, Va areas. Our program is unique as it does have some very important work to assist in the facilitation of our customer's mission. It is not back-office accounting or HR systems. As a whole, it is buzzword compliant--or as much as the gov't can be: big data, analytics, AWS, distributed systems, polyglot environments (although to be honest we're still mostly Java), a variety of 3rd party technologies, migrating to DevSecOps, and we enjoy a great relationship with the customer. Of course, we also maintain & enhance some legacy applications that aren't new & shiny, but they continue to be enhanced because they are truly mission critical. Since our program supports many applications that cover a wide set of functionality, you have the opportunity to move between projects if there is an area (functional or technical) that you'd like to become more involved with . You can also remain with a specific application if frequent movement is not your thing--we've had people who worked on the same apps (and their re-engineering) for over a decade, and they often have become subject matter experts on the data complexities & nuances, so they are able to contribute more to the mission than just slinging code.
What you will get to do:
* Develops code necessary to complete the assigned project(s) in the specified time frame according to departmental standards and guidelines.
* Writes, modifies, and debugs software largely focused in the back-end and data layer.

* Develops the critical components of the solution, including but not limited to, security, rules infrastructure, custom adapter implementation, and application interfaces.
* Architects and codes multi-environment system solutions utilizing various programming languages.

* Profiles, analyzes and optimizes the software he/she is responsible for implementing.
* Employs best practices for design, development, unit testing and test plan development.
* Supports completed software throughout the Software Development Life Cycle and in production.
* Seeks to improve personal job related knowledge and departmental process by studying state-of-the-art development tools, programming techniques, and computing equipment; participating in educational opportunities, and reading professional publications.
* Assists in the training of less experienced software development staff and may act as a team leader on complex projects.
