Job Description

We are GDIT. The people supporting and securing some of the most complex government, defense, and intelligence projects across the country. We ensure today is safe and tomorrow is smarter. Our work has meaning and impact on the world around us, but also on us, and that’s important. GDIT is your place. You make it your own by embracing autonomy, seizing opportunity, and being trusted to deliver your best every day.

We think. We act. We deliver. There is no challenge we can’t turn into opportunity. And our work depends on a VMware Administrator for the FDIC infrastructure program. U.S. Citizenship and background investigation is required; you must have a current clean financial background.  

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation [FDIC] mission is to preserve and promote public confidence in the U.S. financial systems by insuring deposits in banks and thrift institutions for up to $250,000; by identifying, monitoring, and addressing risks to the deposit insurance funds; and by limiting the effect on the account and the financial system when a bank or thrift institution fails. GDIT provides the day-to-day operational services to FDIC in support of infrastructure, facilities, hardware, software, and systems. GDIT supports operational security, client support/help desk, data center operations, asset management, and systems engineering service areas.

The Wintel VM Operations team is responsible for monitoring, maintaining and deploying state-of-the-art physical and virtual infrastructure behind FDIC’s technologies. As a virtualization team member, you'll deploy, migrate, and maintain vSphere 5.5 - 6.7 and Horizon View 7 infrastructure.  You'll also participate in project team initiatives and work closely with other teams to enhance virtual environments. This is a second shift position starting late day afternoon into late evening.

Minimum qualifications:

  • Demonstrate experience with vCenter, vMotion, HA, DRS, VDS, affinity rules, storage migrations, P2V migrations.
