DRC is a leading provider of mission-critical technology management services and solutions for government programs. In the past three years, we have made several strategic hires and acquisitions that have positioned us for rapid growth in the Greater DC Metro (National Capital Region) area. Towards this end, we will be consolidating our Reston and Ballston offices with the opening of a new facility in Clarendon in June 2011. These investments have resulted in DRC being featured in a Federal Computer Week article titled “9 Hot Companies to Watch in 2011.
DRC is actively looking for a highly motivated enterprise architect to join our growing Enterprise Architecture Business Area. We are currently looking for a candidate who will join one of our teams responsible for design and development activities to produce a variety of enterprise level architectures for the Department of Homeland Security. The candidate will serve in a client-facing role, responsible for planning and executing scheduled enterprise architecture priorities within the overall team and client base.
The ideal candidate would have the demonstrated ability to successfully assess organizational entities and associated missions, functions, and capabilities and translate it into a process focused and IT supported enterprise architecture. The selected candidate will serve as an independent advisor for program alignment evaluation to the department's objectives, the target architecture, and the defined standards and technologies.
The position requires understanding functional requirements and making recommendations to develop business models. Business process modeling documents all business and technology requirements (business rules, performance measures, leading practices, data objects, and technology patterns) and becomes a tool for communication, knowledge retention, and business process analysis.
If you're looking to join a highly visible and dynamic team supporting many of the missions that protect the US homeland, this is an ideal opportunity for you.
