This position requires understanding of technical architecture design, including appreciation for translating customer requirements into scalable, highly available systems operating in the AWS cloud.

• Work with the team to build out prototypes of application environments in the cloud as a proof of concept, while building insight into what works and what doesn’t work as well. Make recommendations on how to achieve additional cost savings taking advantage of cloud-enabled technologies.
• Perform testing of cloud-based infrastructure, to include performance testing, high availability testing, disaster recovery testing, etc.
• Stand up software development lifecycle tools, such as source control, issue management, knowledge base, service desk support, etc.
• Support the build-out of development, QA, and production environments within the cloud
• Work closely with the development team to establish build environments which take advantage of continuous integration, continuous deployment, etc. to reduce the overall time for code to be deployed to production
• Lead technical discussions, work collaboratively with others, and communicate effectively with customers and team members
