Harris Global are currently on the lookout for a Cloud Infrastructure Engineer to join our client, a FTSE250 listed Financial Services organisation, on a permanent basis. The successful candidate will be passionate about all things Cloud and be keen to join an organisation where they can develop their skills in a DevOps environment.

You will contribute to the team's maturing responsibilities for the development and management of their infrastructure-as-code'-focused automation services, concentrating on the use of agile tools such as Terraform, Packer, Powershell and Azure DevOps within their Nutanix (on-premise) and Azure (public cloud) hosting environments.

Skills:

  • Exposure to/hands-on experience of the following technologies is preferable but not essential (what's much more important is your ability to take other, relevant experience you have and use that to get up to speed with these technologies quickly):
    • Scripting (PowerShell)
    • Infrastructure as Code (Terraform)
    • CI/CD Pipelines (Azure DevOps)
    • Source Control (GitHub)
    • Public Cloud (Azure)
  • Experience of working collaboratively with multidisciplinary teams (eg developers/testers) using Agile techniques, focusing on the value stream
  • Strong real-world experience developing and maintaining infrastructure-as-code automation solutions using industry-standard tools (eg Packer, Terraform, Azure DevOps, CI/CD, Nutanix Calm)
  • Excellent operational experience (5+ years) of Windows-based on-premise and cloud hosting platforms and encompassing a broad range of hands-on infrastructure/networking/server/cloud knowledge (you don't need to have an up to date CCNA or be a certified MS DevOps Engineer but you need to be comfortable managing and troubleshooting issues with vnets, VMware, release pipelines and App Services, potentially all in the same day)
  • Thorough understanding of the creation, modification and maintenance of scripts/modules/functions using popular Scripting languages and source control systems (eg Powershell, GitHub)
  • Experience of the incorporation of modern security principles into the world of infrastructure management, both to on-premise and (in particular) cloud workloads/services
  • Experience of the Financial Services sector is valuable but not essential - just be ready to show us what you know about the sector and the challenges/opportunities it presents
  • A strong team player who can easily switch focus between individual and collective objectives
  • Excellent troubleshooting & diagnostic skills, including the ability to work well under pressure and follow investigations through to their logical conclusions
  • Good organisational and interpersonal skills and the ability to work collaboratively with other teams to understand technical requirements and provide guidance in relation to the build/maintenance of IT services
  • Clear commitment to life-long learning and the acquisition of new skills and abilities
