Software IT Engineer ( R-00052412 )
Leidos is seeking qualified candidates for Software Information technology engineers to support the infrastructure development and operations of a large scale DevSecOps environment and the implementation of a big data solution. The solutions developed will support the operations and deployment of a large scale distributed simulation training capability for the DOD. This position will be a part of a larger team of engineers and senior architects and involve a wide range of challenging and fast paced solutions to bring "leap-ahead" technology into the realm of state of the art.
