The Health Growth Solutions (HGS) at Leidos has immediate openings for a Enterprise Services DevOps Lead Engineer to help us shape, develop, and deliver new software solutions leveraging state-of-the art technologies to our government customers and launch new and innovative products into the commercial healthcare marketplace. Healthcare is one of the fastest growing sectors of the US economy, but the industry faces many challenges in delivering value to providers and payers and in improving patient care outcomes in a highly dynamic marketplace. Our engineers are at the forefront of defining and building solutions to address those challenges using a go-fast agile approach driven by small teams that rely on and value the contributions of each team member.
As part of Enterprise Services (ES), you will lead a small, agile team in the continuing development and support of the ES health domain services and platform, including the APIs, infrastructure, and micro services at the core of our products and solutions for the commercial healthcare market and federal government health customers. You will collaborate with the Lead Software Architect for HGS on roadmap planning for ES to ensure key technologies and upgrades needed to support our products and applications, as well as security patches and upgrades identified by the security engineer, are planned for and implemented. You will direct and oversee the tasking for the team, including creating and grooming the Jira backlog to support the roadmap. You will communicate ES roadmap releases to the Product Teams and technical leadership to keep products and applications on a currently-supported baseline. You will coordinate with your peers on the Leidos Enterprise Application Framework (LEAF) Team to maintain awareness of release dates and content and communicate bugs and enhancements needed for ES. You will oversee and participate in the implementation of enhancements to the CI/CD pipeline, including on-going automation of security tools and deployment strategies to support regulatory (e.g., HIPAA) and customer requirements for protecting PII/PHI data.
You will lead the team in improving the current cloud infrastructure (AWS) to achieve expected customer SLA thresholds and extending the platform to support deployments into additional cloud platforms, such as Azure. You will have current, hands-on knowledge of relevant open source infrastructure technologies, such as Kubernetes, Kafka, and Mongo, for evaluation, prototyping and spiking solutions, and making recommendations on improvements to the infrastructure. You will ensure that the platform Reference Implementation (RI) is maintained and kept current, along with the integration services, and that architecture and API documentation is kept up-to-date. You’ll contribute to the team’s objectives by leading Kanban or sprint planning, daily scrums, product reviews, and retrospectives. You’ll always respect the opinions of others, accept constructive criticism, share your views with a passion for improving the entire team’s performance, and collaborate openly and positively with your teammates.
