Are you a talented professional and creative software engineer? Are you interested in building enterprise level data retrieval tools that connect users to multiple disparate data stores? Do you want to work with the latest technologies, and develop in an AWS environment? If so, we would like to speak with you!
We’re looking for a few good engineers to join our established team that is working across a multi-domain enterprise environment to create a tool that retrieves GeoINT data for use by a federal client. This multi-year project is responsible for establishing connections between several disparate data stores, and is managed through a multi-tier agile framework. By joining our team, you’ll have the opportunity to develop in AWS, and use industry best practices for continuous integration and delivery.

We are creating a centralized online on-demand search of all geospatial-related content. Users across the NSG will be able to easily discover, access, and retrieve the geospatial-related content they need for missions, functional management, or corporate activity regardless of the content’s producers, formats, or storage locations. Through seamless linkages, we are providing search services supporting all of the agency’s emerging capabilities for visualizing, integrating, analyzing, exploiting, and producing GEOINT, allowing users to easily obtain search results in a variety of environments and leverage them to create new intelligence content.
The enterprise search solution will be enabled by a Data Access Profile (DAP) logical system that remediates metadata between the enterprise search solution and the native data stores. The DAP consists of documentation and a reusable Application Programming Interface (API). The documentation defines the metadata application profile, or metadata schema, that interfaces with the enterprise search solution, to include field attributes and standards. The software API performs the function of remediating metadata as it is stored in the data repository into the schema as defined by the DAP documentation.

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 new 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. We’re very excited to identify the best fit for our team, solve hard problems, and geek out!
