It is for a Cloud Engineer based in Newport. We need 2 people to come and join us on a contract we have just won for Airbus D&S, who are deploying their own on-prem private cloud solution, based on MS Azure.

Our technical specialists deploy systems running many of the major operating systems such as Microsoft Windows, Mac OS, and multiple Linux distros. We also provide Messaging and Collaboration systems and support, Application packaging and deployment, along with supporting Infrastructure and Cloud services and support. Our time can be split between our services and project work, so we have the chance to be multi-disciplined and access to a range of technologies.

The day job

We work a 7.5-hour weekly shift rotation covering a 7am-7pm, Mon-Fri service. This role will require being on-call in 2022 to provide a 24x7 service.
