If you are a cloud computing architect, have I got news for you - NJVC, one of the largest IT solutions providers supporting the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), is building a high performance cloud computing team.

We help customers solve their toughest mission-critical IT challenges, enabling them to concentrate their resources on their core mission. 

While much of our work requires a security clearance, and having an active clearance would be a definite plus, don't let that stop you from exploring the possibilities.

The currently open system architect position is located in Vienna, VA. The ideal candidate will be able to conceive, experiment with, and present Cloud Computing architectural approaches for information technology and systems, including software, hardware, and processes, in support of business needs.

They will also be able to ensure architectural integrity and consistency across any cloud computing solution. Position tasks may include:

  • Defining the requirements for, and the collection, organization, management, and reporting of IT architecture information —especially in the context of present and future architectures, transition plans, integrated schedules, and downward directed Congressional, SECNAV, and SECDEF reporting requirements.
  • Identification and inventory of equipment/software, interviewing users, attending design meetings, and using tools to graphically depict architectures and assist in designing/maintaining the Enterprise Architecture Management database using MS Access and SQL Server.
  • Define, design and develop system requirements for cloud computing. Assess architecture and current hardware limitations, define and design complex system specifications, input/output processes and working parameters for hardware/software compatibility.
