● Working with the infrastructure design team on capacity planning / monitoring

● Providing 3rd line support to the operational service teams for escalated issues


Essential Skills.

  • Working knowledge/experience of Cloud services such as AWS, Google and Azure

  • Knowledge of application and server virtualisation technologies and components including  Microsoft Hyper­V and Citrix XenApp

Whilst not essential, the following would be of significant benefit within the role:

  • Use and development of automation tooling such as Ansible and Terraform

  • Deployment and support of Infrastructure platforms to AWS and other Cloud providers

  • Experience of providing support for enterprise scale systems

  • Knowledge of database technologies including MySQL, MSSQL, MongoDB and Postgres
