Are you a talented and creative DevOps Engineer who loves to automate solutions using bash, groovy, and python with automation frameworks like ansible, saltstack, cloudformation, or chef?  Do you have experience supporting development teams that build solutions on AWS or Azure?  Or are you looking to break free from that on-prem server environment you’ve been supporting? Do you want to help build solutions that are used by real people that solve real-world problems? Are you a CI/CD evangelist looking to enable dev teams with build/test pipelines using the latest DevSecOps automated tooling?  If so, we want to speak with you!

Berico Technologies is working with the Department of Commerce to better commercialize intellectual property (inventions) that are developed and owned by the Federal Government. These inventions are developed by National Laboratories, University partnerships and other research/development programs, making the Federal Government one of the largest creators of intellectual property in the world.  Well known US Companies license these inventions to bring new technologies to market in the form of new consumer products. Commercializing this intellectual property is also good for the economy because it maximizes the return on investments made by US Taxpayers.

Berico is building a modern web/mobile enabled, publicly accessible expanded commercial marketplace that will make it easier for companies to search and discover intellectual property from the Federal Government, and direct from Universities and US Business.  We seek an enthusiastic DevOps Engineer to help us achieve this vision using modern development techniques and frameworks to create the best user experience possible. As an DevOps Engineer, you will work with a team using technologies like: Git/Github, Sonarqube, Jenkins, Groovy, CloudFormation using bash, python and other automation tooling. You will work with a talented team comprised of a scrummaster, product owner, web/server developers, a UI/UX designer, a QA test engineer and the Chief Technology Officer to build, test and release the marketplace using an AWS Serverless Architecture. If you want to get your hands dirty with cloud devops, we would like to hear from you.  

Berico is not your ordinary, stuffy Washington DC Government Contractor. As a small business, Berico is more like a family. We work out of a modern industrial office. We are an Amazon Web Services Standard Partner, and a Cloudera Silver Partner. We love DevOps, and leverage the latest open source technologies. We manage our own open source project: CLAVIN. We only hire the best people who share our intense passion for delivery. We care about work/life balance, and have regular company gatherings. We play board games and XBox in the office to clear our minds.  We are a recognized innovator by the Northern Virginia Technology Council (NVTC). We are a two-time Best Places to Work awardee. We have unparalleled benefits for health, vision and dental, and support flexible work hours. We will sponsor up to $5k in annual training & certifications on technologies we use and want to build competencies in, and provide free access to learning materials like Linux Academy. We send high-performers to conferences. Come work with us, and you’ll be empowered to make an impact; you’ll have the freedom and flexibility to grow professionally and to take the company in new directions.
