Working extensively with in our hybrid cloud environment (AWS, GCP, Azure, private VMWare cloud), you will be embedded within the product development and SRE squads to enable them to test and deploy software rapidly whilst ensuring the highest standards of reliability and security.
You will influence architectural decisions with focus on security, scalability, cost and high-performance.
