  • Implement and configure NSX-T for software-defined networking and security within the virtualized environment.
  • Collaborate with infrastructure and operations teams to integrate VMware solutions with existing systems and technologies.
  • Provide technical expertise and support during the testing, troubleshooting, and resolution of issues related to VMware infrastructure.
  • Develop and maintain documentation, including architectural diagrams, standard operating procedures, and technical guides.
  • Stay updated on emerging VMware technologies, trends, and best practices to drive continuous improvement and innovation.


  • Proven experience designing, implementing, and managing VMware-based virtualization solutions, with a focus on vRealize Orchestrator (VRO), VMware Cloud Director (VCD), and NSX-T.
  • In-depth knowledge of virtualization concepts, VMware vSphere architecture, and related technologies.
  • Hands-on experience with scripting languages (e.g., PowerShell, Python) for automation and customization of VMware environments.
  • Strong understanding of software-defined networking (SDN) principles and experience with NSX-T configuration and management.
  • Excellent analytical, problem-solving, and troubleshooting skills with a keen attention to detail.
  • Ability to work effectively in a collaborative Agile team environment and communicate technical concepts to non-technical stakeholders.
