The Defense Digital Service has opened a satellite office in Augusta, Ga., near the U.S. Army Cyber Command and Fort Gordon, Defense One reported Saturday.
The Augusta office, nicknamed âTatooineâ, is located at the Georgia Cyber Center and has a staff of around 15 full-time personnel. Rachel Breitfeller, communications director at DDS, said the Department of Defense unit is âactively hiring civiliansâ that will work on software development, design, product management and other digital-related activities.
âOur goal is for colleagues that work in Tatooine to touch projects that we take on regardless of location,â she said. âOur plan with Tatooine was to tap into the tech ecosystem and talent in Augusta and the surrounding areas, and create a secondary, accessible space that all colleagues would want to work out of.â
Defense Digital Service was launched in 2015, with Chris Lynch tapped to served as its director.
