Cloud Alignment Manager


Account Manager


San Antonio, Texas, United States


Leidos has an opportunity for a Cloud Alignment Manager to lead, manage, direct and guide the efforts of the team that will take the engineering lead in transforming on-premise legacy systems to the cloud. The Cloud Alignment Manager will specifically focus his or her efforts to help lead migration efforts to the Oracle Software as a Service (SaaS) Human Capital Management (HCM).

At Leidos, you are part of a work family that build solutions that matter! Come, play a pivotal role in transforming the Department of Defense (DoD) Civilian Personnel Data System (DCPDS) to the next generation human resources (HR) system that leverages the Oracle SaaS HCM. This new HR system, Defense Civilian Human Resources Management System (DCHRMS), is a cloud-based personnel system that will integrate six different HR application databases (for each of the DCPDS DoD agencies) into one consolidated database and provide a core transactional system that makes it more flexible to share information between Component agencies while standardizing and streamlining personnel processes. The DHRMS HR system model will represent an Enterprise Common Model (ECM) that could then allow other agencies to leverage the government HR services. Other HR supporting applications reside within the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), some integrate with DCHRMS, and others will transform into cloud solutions.

The Leidos DCHRMS program has started incorporating continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) principles within our cloud transformation efforts and is working towards integrating test automation into our process-based and regression testing activities. Our model focuses on agile methodologies through continuous improvements to transition to a more DevOps approach of routinely integrating code changes into the main branch of a repository/baseline, and testing the changes, as early and often as possible. This approach starts with the decomposition of requirements to formulate them into user stories allowing the configuration and development teams to align their code and configurations to meet that of the acceptance criteria within each user story.

The Cloud Alignment Manager is responsible to lead and manage the team to analyze and evaluate user functional needs and will decompose and align requirements into a functional specification and further align those requirements to the technical teams to implement and test for the final customer acceptance. As the Cloud Alignment Manager, you will oversee the entire alignment process into documented requirements so that the program can progress to getting the features deployed into the Oracle cloud.

As the manager, you are expected to serve as a lead business systems analysis and may act as the Scrum Lead for SaaS HCM project implementations. You will be part of a fast-moving program team, using agile and scrum processes to transform our DoD customers to state-of-the-art cloud solutions. You are focused on working towards ensuring solutions are implemented while also being mindful of the expected delivery timelines, working collaboratively with the department and functional groups across the organization. Duties include coordinating with business and technology teams to decompose and align system requirements, transcribe requirements into user stories so they are in a state the configuration and development teams can execute, and complete design such as program functions, output requirements, input data acquisition, and execution of user acceptance criteria. Ability to capture functional requirements, lead scrum projects, if applicable, to assign and design capabilities to handle functional and system requirements. Works with developers and testers to ensure requirements are being met.

This position will be remote, allowing you to reside within San Antonio area (where the program is managed) or where you currently live within the United States.
