  • Test all changes to networks, hardware, software, and hosted applications
  • Resolve issues and prepare status reviews and reports
  • Professionally represent the infrastructure team as a technical consultant on projects
  • Maintain the necessary project plans and documentation of all system builds and modifications
  • Interact and coordinate with vendors, suppliers, distributors and contract consultants
  • Support all Back-office solutions including Office 365 product suite
Driving performance and reliability from software, infrastructure and cloud environments, the Contract Wintel Engineer will as a starting point, have demonstrable experience in and knowledge of the following:
  • Managing live Wintel environments
  • Cloud solutions such as Azure or AWS
  • Small scale network support experience encompassing knowledge of LAN, Checkpoint, Juniper and/or Meraki

In addition, knowledge and experience of the following would be advantageous:

  • Automation through use of PowerShell, Cloudformation, and/or Ansible/Chef/Puppet
  • Cloud Hybris experience
  • Experience of deploying and managing IIS and SQL Server

This is a genuinely excellent opportunity for a Contract Wintel Engineer to join an ambitious and technology-driven organisation working within an industry willing to challenge the status quo; and to work within a modern team of people passionate about technology and the business at large.

In terms of day rate, this is open to discussion and negotiation.
