As part of the SME Azure Ops / Automation team, you will be closely aligned to the professional services team, providing guidance on all thing Azure automation and IaC.

  • Challenging current process and implementing change
  • Independently leading specific workstreams
  • Coach, guide and upskill other Engineers
  • Not afraid to say 'No, that doesn't work but can we approach it this way/differently'
