Joining the Air Force team, they said, gives you the opportunity to make a difference.
“Kessel Run’s mission is to rapidly deliver combat capability to the warfighters and, as I mentioned before we have a proven track record for providing software solutions in real time,” Peterson said.
“Recently, we were responsible for the software solutions for Operation Allies Refuge that were instrumental in the safe evacuation of more than 123,000 people over multiple applications and securing those applications on our platform.”
These aren’t typical Air Force organizations meaning the jobs need unique people and skills.
“We are taking advantage of the DevSecOps principles in executing our software activities in an agile way to rapidly respond and deliver capability at what we call the speed of relevance and in cyber that that speed is very fast paced,” Priestly said.
“This provides a great opportunity for engineers, program managers and other disciplines to have no kidding hands-on experience working on their craft.”
All the organizations also offer great work locations in downtown Boston for Kessel Run or San Antonio for Unified Platform and Platform One.
