Job Description


We’re looking for an exceptional communicator. We need a go-getter with a wide range of skills to join us on the SAIC team and collaborate directly with the team leadership.  

This position supports our client-facing delivery team in support of the Air Force weather community on the Technology Application Development & Sustainment (TADS) contract. In this position, you will directly contribute to the team success by supporting the creation and delivery of Contract Data Requirements List (CDRL) items. You understand Data Item Descriptions (DIDs), but want to master Confluence as a tool for content generation. In this position, you will work directly with delivery staff to develop templates for critical data capture.
