A leading provider for Cloud Desktops are seeking to expand their team, and are looking to bring in a DevOps Automation Engineer to assist the organisation through their significant period of growth.

This organisation work on a number of different platforms including technical consultancy, office relocation, agile working and cloud migration strategies. They have a rapidly expanding client base in a number of different industries including pharmaceuticals, restaurant chains, tech businesses and start-ups. There could not be a better time to join the company as they continue to increase their market share in the industry. Within the organisation is an extremely diverse and exciting workforce with a fantastic culture of innovation.

You will be joining a small existing team which compromises a Technical Solutions Architect, 2 developers and a cloud architect, where you will report to the Technical Solutions Architect. The team encourage communication and cohesion to ensure that everyone works as a successful unit.

The role itself is bespoke and tailored towards the demands of the organisation. The purpose of the role is to build and automate the organisation's cloud desktop to reduce delivery time and improve the client experience. You will be required to assist in developing tools and processes to enable an increase in the rate of business growth by automating their current deployment processes. This will involve automated orchestration and provisioning of the Viastak cloud platform, applications and developing tools that expand the platform across multiple products namely Citrix and Azure. This will take the manual product delivery away from the service desk and into an automated platform.

The key technical requirements are as follows:

  • 2-3 years working knowledge of Citrix
  • Working knowledge of AWS or Azure
  • Ability to write automation scripts to deploy cloud infrastructure on a variety of platforms
  • Command-line capabilities in Windows or Linux
  • Programming capabilities in a high-level programming language such as Ruby, Python, PHP, Node.js, Java, C# or similar
  • Frequent and comfortable use of configuration management automation tools such as Chef (or other such tools) in creating continuous delivery systems.
