PURPOSE AND SCOPE OF JOB

 

The Cloud Engineering Team are a key part of the Banks future vision. We are already playing a fundamental role in modernising the Banks infrastructure as we seek to migrate all of our workloads onto the Cloud over the course of the next 2 years. We assist the business in advising and guiding them with Cloud Migrations, new platform deployments and 3rd party Cloud engagements. This is followed by delivering deployments of business applications to the Cloud.

 

As part of the Cloud Engineering team, this role will focus on working to deploy, migrate and manage the Shawbrook Cloud Platform on Azure. This will involve working on business projects to help design and build systems on Azure, using IaC with Ci/CD best practice principles in order to help the bank move towards DevOps. We are working on delivering cutting edge cloud technology for the bank as we scale up, modernise and migrate all of our systems.

During this period of migration, which is expected to last ~2 years, there will continue to be some small requirement to help build, manage and support the current On-Prem infrastructure systems. This will involve general Windows domain system admin

This role will be part of a very strong team of other Cloud Infrastructure Engineers, who will also be continuing to support the on-Prem platforms.
