Senior Dev Ops Engineer


Why IDS?


Today’s virtual training environments are segmented and simplistic—the opposite of the real-world’s complex and integrated cyber battlefield. When even the most subtle input can influence every other facet of an operation, the one-dimensional training provided to our armed forces is not only outdated, it flat-out fails to equip them to outpace the operational tempo of the rapidly-evolving multi-domain battlefield. In the virtual arena, new threats emerge every day. IDS provides the tools for warfighters and cyber operators not just to prepare for them, but to anticipate the risks and to be ready for them when they arrive.


Social Media Environment and Internet Replication (SMEIR™), a product of IDS International Government Services, is a digital training solution that provides a full-range, free-play, immersive, realistic and scalable operational practice environment in which warfighters simultaneously train on full-spectrum cyberspace operations and social media analytics during integrated and multi-dimensional exercises.


IDS International is seeking a Senior Dev Ops Engineer to join our growing team and build out the next generation of our internet simulation platform, called SMEIR.  Our extensive software suite is deployed into cyber-training exercises in various environments including AWS (GovCloud) and private server clusters.  The Senior Dev Ops Engineer will be tasked to manage, improve, and operate our deployment system which launches Docker containers on Kubernetes, and in some cases uses Ansible to deploy Kubernetes pods. We use Slack, Jira and Git for project and software management. Our main office is in Arlington, VA with remote opportunities available for the right candidate.
