Top Secret Clearance inside Tech

Apr 1, 2019 25 Comments

Saw a position for a Microsoft for Top Secret Clearance. Anyone have any insight into this?

Are there any big companies hiring for clearances?

Edit: because people don’t know, it’s perfectly okay to advertise a TS Clearance job publicly

    AWS and Azure are building out their Gov-specific cloud platforms so I wouldn't be surprised by these listings. Last I heard they were both competing for a $10B Pentagon contract so there's plenty of reason to have cleared engineers.

      No one I know from AWS is working on the platform specifically but if you search "AWS GovCloud" on LinkedIn there are a few job openings and hiring managers who you could reach out to to learn more.

      Good luck!

      The contract theamazone is referring to is JEDI. It's potentially a 10B+ opportunity for CSPs with the US federal gov

    Most of the time you just write cleared if you have some sort of clearance and then only apply for the ones you actually qualify for. :)

    Source: ex TS cleared, expired years ago, so glad to be out of that game

    Ps: have contacts at govcloud and google fed because once you’re in, you’re in for life... if you’re in the market with an active TS

      Hiring in LA for some roles, no free lunch guaranteed (but expense able under many circumstances). DM if you want to talk.

    Yes they are all hiring people with clearances - Google not as much as MS and AWS though as Azure and AWS have Fedramp high (can support secret and potentially higher) cloud offerings - Google does not (yet).

    MS and Amazon do a lot of consulting/government contracting, especially cloud services.
