GDIT is seeking a Senior Technologist / Solutions Advisor to join the Business Innovation Services (BIS) team to help us drive our digital transformation and accelerate the way we do business as a company. The Business Innovation Services team is a collaborative and dynamic team of strategic thinkers and doers. We value creativity and follow a “best idea wins” mentality where everyone’s ideas are heard, and all contributions are valued.

BITS is focused on breaking down organizational silos to organize around Value Streams – how we create value for our employees, customers, and General Dynamics. We accomplish this by working with the business functions, IT, and the industry divisions to optimize our business processes, data, and technology.  This empowers us to become more efficient, effective, and competitive. In this role, you will work directly with functional leaders across the enterprise to identify innovation opportunities. Leveraging a challenger mindset and a results orientation, you will help our customers envision the art of the possible to achieve their business goals and drive cross-functional innovation initiatives to execute on these ideas.
