Annual Salary

As a Senior ETL Solutions Architect, you will be joining the team that is deploying and delivering a cloud-based, multi-domain Common Data Fabric (CDF), which provides data sharing services to the entire DoD Intelligence Community (IC). The CDF connects all IC data providers and consumers. It uses fully automated policy-based access controls to create a machine-to-machine data brokerage service, which is enabling the transition away from Legacy point-to-point solutions across the IC enterprise.


We were founded as a fresh alternative in the Government Consulting Community and are dedicated to the belief that results are a product of analytical thinking, agile design principles and that solutions are built in collaboration with, not for, our customers. This mantra drives us to succeed and act as true partners in advancing our client's missions.

Program Mission

The project you will be working is to migrate an existing Legacy portfolio to a more evolvable architecture that can better leverage a cloud environment to deliver better technology, reduce program sustainment costs, and higher system reliability. Our approach is to transform Legacy applications to be cloud native and reside on a Platform as a Service (PaaS). Additionally, modernize current applications by breaking them down into loosely coupled micro-services or create new micro-services, and leveraging a continuous integration/continuous delivery pipeline to enable an agile DevOps Strategy.

  • Conduct technical evaluations and trade studies to inform and develop ETL system architecture and processes

  • Analyze and test multiple ETL solutions, then propose a recommended solution, to include full integration with the CDF

  • Ensure the design and implementation delivers a large-scale ingest and ETL system that provides full interoperability with Legacy systems

  • Oversee deployment of the selected ETL solution to achieve full operational capability

  • Establish transformations and SOPs for converting common native data to community defined formats

  • Support transitioning customers from Legacy infrastructure to full utilization of the CDF implemented MDM/ETL Platform as a Service (PaaS).
