The PACKAGE DEPLOYMENT ADMINISTRATOR will work as part of an elite and agile engineering team responsible for maintaining and improving system functionality through proactive interaction with the customer, comprehensive understanding of their primary GEOINT exploitation system, and knowledge of the production mission. The successful candidate will be providing essential software packaging, testing, and upgrade solutions to support a demanding customer mission need. The approach will be to treat packaging as an artful skill, applying a programming-style discipline to scripting to produce exceptional results.
The requirement is to provide a complete software installation and/or upgrade solution with maximum success rate and minimal downtime due to package installation failures. The solution will need to include but not be limited to following: be able to detect if a given piece of software is already installed; gracefully handle upgrades/removals of older versions; handle complete and silent installs, creating solutions for non-silent installers; handle configuration of applications; handle complete and silent uninstalls, including complete cleanup; make the package as system agnostic/universal as possible; make little to no assumptions of previous software configurations; handle re-running the package, potentially numerous times in a row; provide a list of files and/or registry keys to verify software installation for use as SCCM detection methods.
The administrator will be responsible for configuring and testing software licensing for new versions of software. The administrator will test applications for more than just installation and launching, but for functionality and compatibility with mission need. The administrator will be able to identify software packaging issues before software deployment to the production environment. The administrator will also be required to perform Windows Administration work to support software deployment and maintenance on multiple machines across multiple domains. The administrator will actively learn Geospatial software; developing skills in determining integration issues, making corrective recommendations, and evaluating software upgrade solutions. The Administrator will develop extensive knowledge of intelligence productions systems used by GEOINT analysts.
The successful candidate will develop knowledge of GEOINT analyst’s various software suites and functions to include but not limited to RemoteView, SocetGXP, Socet Set, Google Earth, ArcGIS, ENVI, and AGITK. Likewise, the candidate will be able to quickly respond to application related issues, replicate the issue for internal analysis/diagnosis, and prepare technical documentation accurately depicting the problem and/or solution for feedback to developer/vendor.
