!! Must be a US Citizen or Green Card Holder and must be able to obtain a Public Trust Clearance!!!

This is a fantastic opportunity for any talented candidate who are seeking a unique lead developer opportunity that we don’t often find in Federal contracting.  First, this is an opportunity to truly lead an Agile software development effort.  We are seeking candidates who can excel in a lead role – influencing and leading technical strategy, setting technical design and delivery standards, guiding and mentoring technical staff, and developing high quality technical solutions.  Second, this is the opportunity to work on the highest priority application development effort for an agency.  The application is called the GAO New Blue and it isn’t some obscure, back office application.  New Blue will be GAO’s only enterprise application and it will be used by or impact virtually everyone across GAO. Because of this project’s high stature, you will have the opportunity to work with the most senior agency staff.  For example, the CIO attends every Sprint Review!  Finally, this is a great team. The team is truly integrated with customer and consultant working side-by-side in a supportive, open and collaborative way.  If you are ready for a challenge, join us and expand your career horizons.
