We are seeking a DevOps Site Reliability Engineer to join our team to support the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) in Rockville, MD. As a DevOps Site Reliability Engineer, you will collaborate with product owners to design and deploy business and scientific products on a custom Docker platform as a service (Paas) in Amazon Web Services (AWS). You will work closely with nine other innovative and savvy people to engineer and expand the PaaS with new tools and technologies. You'll help automate and streamline our operations and processes, and further the adoption of DevOps best practices. We'll want your opinion on operational processes, DevOps, deployment checklists, and more. (A focus on always-up, always-available services is a plus.) To be successful in this role, you will like being a part of a team and be capable of teaching others and explaining the "why" behind complicated technical decisions.

What GDIT Can Offer You


  • Opportunity to participate in an evolution movement.
  • Opportunity to stay at the forefront of distributed computing and DevOps.
  • See the business impact of technology.
  • Ability to expand your cloud infrastructure knowledge and adoption of DevOps best practices.

    In this role, a typical day will include:

    • Collaborating with software developers in designing solutions to host and deploy custom business and scientific applications on our PaaS in AWS.
    • Joining sprint or ad hoc meetings to discuss requirements for products and brainstorm new technical solutions. Then either collaboratively or independently, implement the solutions, such as a standard offering in the PaaS for hosting graph databases or a supported configuration for a custom application with multiple Docker containers.
    • Working closely with other Site Reliability Engineers to enhance and expand fundamental capabilities offered in the PaaS, such as CI/CD, infrastructure as code, and containerized or serverless workloads.
    • When CI/CD deployment pipelines fail, you'll troubleshoot these issues, working closely with product owners until the problem is resolved.
    • Attending a daily stand-up meeting to report your accomplishments, plans for the day, and any roadblocks you encountered. Your team will do the same, giving you an opportunity to understand and contribute to other ongoing initiatives.
    • Breaking down monolithic applications hosted on-prem into micro-service architecture hosted in containers or using serverless workloads. This is part of an effort to refactor applications and shift hosting from on-prem infrastructure to the PaaS in AWS.
    • Occasionally present to your team or our software developer colleagues, on DevOps best practices, new and interesting cloud technologies, and ways you approached and solved challenging technical issues during our Tech Talks webinar series.

      Required Qualifications:

      • BA/BS or equivalent and eight years related experience or a MS and six years experience
      • Minimum of three years experience with AWS.
      • Experience with commonly used services such as EC2, S3, Route 53, and RDS, as well as more niche services, such as Organizations, Sage Maker, and Guard Duty.
      • Experience with infrastructure as code and automation/configuration management using either Cloud Formation or Terraform to define infrastructure standards for cloud services.
      • Ability to use a wide variety of technologies to host container services and registries, continuous deployment and continuous integration services, code repositories, and security vulnerability identification to support cloud infrastructure. Example technologies include AWS ECS, Kubernetes, Docker, Jenkins, GoCD, AWS ECR, Artifactory, Twistlock, and Netsparker.
      • Good understanding of programming languages, such as PHP, Python, Perl, and/or Ruby.
      • Experience analyzing solutions components, understanding systems integration challenges, and identifying technology gaps in current components that must be resolved to reach future performance targets and functionality requirements in cloud infrastructure.
      • Must be able to obtain a NIH Public Trust

        Desired Qualifications:

        • Able to clearly present ideas to both technical and non-technical users and staff to further the adoption of DevOps.
        • Extensive knowledge about APIs. You can design RESTful services and integrate with other data providers, and you know when to use JSON or XML.
        • Experience designing and implementing technologies following NIST standards, such as SP 800-53, SP 800-190, and SP 500-291.
