  • Cloud technology experience working with AWS and/or Azure
  • Scripting experience using Powershell
  • System implementation experience and system admin background would be a plus, so would be Linux experience.
  • Personality and good attitude are key. Must be a good communicator with attention to detail.

The Role

  • As the team is based in the US, the client is looking for someone autonomous who can take direction without consistently needing input along the way as the time difference would not allow it.
