What is Solute?

Solute Inc. is a cutting-edge engineering firm focused on bringing modern technologies and approaches to mission critical systems in the U.S. Department of Defense. Our efforts have defined the DevOps approach for the U.S. Navy and our projects will determine the next 10 years of software development and continuous delivery for satellite systems, submarines, mission planning and signals intelligence applications.

What is a DevOps Engineer at Solute?

Here at Solute we believe DevOps to be more than just a buzzword; DevOps engineers at Solute are effective problem solvers that focus on automating manual processes and improving the overall software development cycle. We develop against a large variety of systems depending on our Customers' requirements and enable them for future success through well-built CI/CD pipelines. Because of our focus on enablement and transition to our customer environments we do not have after hours or on call SRE support. Our DevOps engineers come from a variety of backgrounds including systems engineering, software engineering, and system administration.

Why would you want to work at Solute?

Solute seeks out opportunities that allow our engineers to work with modern and innovative technologies in impactful projects. Our solutions are built for use in mission critical systems and often are subject to interesting and challenging constraints. For example, we often build solutions that must operate effectively in offline or difficult to reach environments while maintaining reproducibility, maintainability, and security.

Solute offers more than just technical opportunities. Solute encourages personal development and growth for all our team members. We support the professional growth of our employees with educational stipends, conferences, and the opportunities for ownership and leadership. Team members are given pathways for growth on their projects and Solute is here to help you further your career goals.

What are some examples of work I could be a part of?

Solute has been brought in to evaluate and rearchitect a major underwater surveillance system to facilitate the implementation of next generation capabilities. We are leveraging modern technologies such as containerization, distributed proxying, and dynamic service discovery to bring the very best technology to our nation's defenses.

What are some key technologies you will work with?

The exact technical stack varies from solution to solution but, there are a few technologies we often reach for when exploring a new problem:
  • Linux is the most common development and deployment platform we encounter
  • Terraform is our go-to infrastructure automation tool
  • Ansible is the most common configuration management tool you will see
  • Git is the primary source control system we use for our projects
  • OpenShift/Kubernetes are our usual choices for container management

What are we looking for in a senior engineer?

First and foremost, a senior engineer should be able to operate independently based on a set of tasks assigned to them. Secondly, a senior engineer at Solute must evaluate technical decisions within the context of the larger project. They need to analyze the rippling impacts of technical decisions and they impact other system components. Furthermore, a senior level candidate should be willing and able to mentor other engineers in the organization. Our senior engineers are typically seen as prime technical resources and must be willing to share their opinions and experiences effectively.

We also have junior and mid-level positions available for candidates that want to grow into a senior-level position.
