GDIT is looking for a Systems Administrator Senior in the greater Albuquerque, New Mexico area who holds minimum active DOD Secret clearance.
Here’s an opportunity to work for the US Air Force’s most storied and advanced Distributed Training operation. Winner of numerous US Air Force and US Department of Defense training awards over the last 20 years, the Distributed Mission Operations (DMO) Center (DMOC) at Kirtland AFB, NM is the Air Force’s primary hub for distributed combat training exercises, testing and experimentation.
