Job description

The creation of first-class products and capabilities that will help deliver against Stewardship’s mission must be unpinned by a world class hosting platform. The decision has been made that this fundamental building block for the success of our digital strategy for the future will be Azure and now we require a suitable talent to help drive forward our cloud strategy delivery.

As a small team at the start of the journey, we need someone who brings good infrastructure experience and that knows Azure, but is perhaps frustrated by restrictive team structures in their current role – who is ready to release the shackles, move from reading blog posts and start delivering on technical challenges. You may currently be infrastructure centric, but you have the ability to think like a Developer and you embrace the “as code” future.

By summer 2021, we plan to re-platform production from co-located Hyper-V to Azure, embrace Azure Cloud DevOps as the foundation of our SDLC toolchain and augment this with the Infrastructure as Code deployment and configuration management tools needed to deliver. We then plan to refactor our in-house core software product, reducing release cycles from months to weeks as we move to update code and shift to cloud native containers and DBaaS hosting, while integrating other products (SaaS, PaaS or acquired code) to deliver the next generation of Stewardship services.

Main responsibilities:

  • Collaborate with architecture, development, security and the broader company to set up and maintain a “best in class” cloud platform and provide ongoing guidance on its consumption.
  • Influence architectural & design decisions with regards to the operational reliability of our Azure cloud platform.
  • Drive efficiency, automation and cost reduction by automating manual and repetitive tasks.
  • Develop features and codified artefacts for platform improvements using automation and infrastructure as code.
  • Provide technical expertise at parts and/or all stages of the delivery lifecycle.
  • Enforce standards and provide governance and contribute to process improvement.
  • Identify and escalate dependencies, risks and exceptions that will affect implementation and operations of technical artefacts.
  • Share experience with peers to contribute to the growth of knowledge of Cloud.
