Job Description

Our client, an industry leader in the provision of cloud-native business solutions have an excellent opportunity for a Cloud Solution Architect.

In your role as Cloud Solution Architect, you will be required to provide the analysis, requirement definition and architecture of cloud-based solutions for a variety of clients from within broadcasting, advertising, publishing, sports, and post-production. As the subject matter expert on public cloud and technologies you will create and validate high-level and low-level design documentation.

To be considered, you must have previously implemented cloud-centric IaaS, PaaS or SaaS projects. Microsoft Azure Architect Design or Architect Technologies certifications are mandatory, and we are unable to consider applicants without one (but ideally both) of these accreditations.  

It is essential that you can demonstrate deep product knowledge and understanding of product features of Microsoft Azure as well as virtualisation, VMware, Citrix, TLS/SSL, encryption and key management principles, networking principles and technologies (DNS, Load Balancers, Reverse Proxies). Practical experience of sizing hardware and storage requirements is also required.  

As a Microsoft Partner you will also liaise closely on a regular basis with key business associates and also work closely with clients to solve real business problems, so you must also demonstrate fantastic communication skills. Within this role you will be the direct line manager for a small cloud operations team (3-4 direct reports), so previous experience of establishing and then managing a department is also highly advantageous.

If you feel this is the right role for you and you are fully eligible to live and work in the UK without restrictions, then please apply now for immediate consideration.
