GovCIO is looking for an Infrastructure Architect to join our Health PMO team. The candidate should have experience with a civil agency, preferably Veterans Affairs. This is a remote working opportunity. This individual is expected to have a proven track record of working remotely with minimal direction.  Office hours are M-F 8am-5pm ET.


Our team is responsible for supporting biomedical research in the VA utilizing a secure high-performance computing environment.  The prospective candidate(s) will be joining a highly motivated team who sustain Linux and Windows environments with hundreds of machines, both on prem and in the Government Cloud. As VA continues to upload genomic data on to the platform, the massive amounts of large data sets lead to platform scaling issues.  The incoming Architects and Engineers must have an eye towards cloud expansion - more data means more problems with running large experiments with massive data set comparisons.


The environment is dynamic and client needs are often evolving. As such, thought leadership, problem-solving, rapid learning, and carrying the innovative mindset needed to lead our clients through conceptualization, strategic planning, and execution is important. Additionally, flexibility and forward-thinking views are important for success.
