You are an experienced, dynamic, motivated, client-focused Cloud Migration Task Order Program Manager (TOM) who enjoys supporting government contracts of multiple satellite ground systems and the migration of those ground systems to the cloud. Here at SAIC you will report directly to the EDIS program’s deputy program manager (supported by our cloud architect) and will be responsible for the implementation of transitioning on-premises servers to a Cloud-based environment. We know you will use discretionary judgment within known parameters to direct the work of a team to install, maintain, and support basic to moderately complex systems using cloud technologies and principles.

This position is a pathfinder for moving Space Force ground systems into the Cloud and developing a proof of concept on migration of multiple mission partners’ assets into this multiplex environment.

- Support and participate in system Configuration Management process including Engineering Change Proposal, Engineering Review Board/Configuration Control Boards (ECP, ERB/CCB)
- Identify system development risks, construct risk management plan and risk mitigation approaches.
- Analyze current on premise infrastructure and existing applications and identify which systems will be migrated and which systems require retirement, refactoring, replacement, and/or rehosting.
- Analyze, troubleshoot, and resolve instance, software, and network-related cloud issues
- Identify the underlying principles, reasons, or facts of information through analysis of project-related data for the development of project deliverables.
- Test, maintain, and monitor computer programs and systems, including coordinating the installation of computer programs and systems.
- Confer with clients regarding the nature of the information processing or computation needs the project is to address.
- Serve as a technical resource to clients during the implementation and ongoing maintenance of cloud-related technologies and computing.

- Provide subject matter expertise on cloud services, automation, and cyber security, to include any updates to Risk Management Framework (RMF)/Authorization to Operate (ATO) activities.
- Lead migration of on premise systems to a cloud platform in a manner that optimizes the use of cloud technologies and computing (not simply “lift and shift”).
