A customer is looking for a tenured AWS Architect to join their team remotely, and ultimately support their government customer. This is a heavy customer-facing role. Candidate must have great communication skills, be comfortable running point in meetings, and be able to articulate the possesses and progression of the development and architecture of the new environment. The AWS Architect will assess AWS capabilities, put together plans to migrate existing data to the new AWS cloud, and will have a heavy focus on the transformation of the information (but will NOT be expected to build the environment from scratch.) Must have experience in the federal space, specifically working within GovCloud. The team size is between 10-15 engineers and architects, and the entire team operates remotely. HIGHLY PREFERRED if you have a Government Clearance, Secret level clearance or above.
