What is your purpose in this role?

LEADERSHIP

Defining the strategy for your department from the company objectives is an example of how your leadership contributes to the bigger picture. From there, your ability to get hands-on when required will enable you to coach your team. Finally, growing the team and hiring sits firmly within your scope.

INFRASTRUCTURE IMPROVEMENTS

One of the technical objectives you will lead is migrating the infrastructure from on-premise to Azure cloud. The decision has already been made to commit to Azure, so it would be great if we can find people already familiar with Azure infrastructure. Another technical objective is to increase automation.

Who are we searching for?

  • We think the right person will have at least 2 years of leadership responsibilities in some capacity
  • To have the credibility to set a strategy and make important technical decisions, we think the right person may have spent at least 5 years in a DevOps / Cloud Engineer or similar role prior to stepping into a leadership position
  • Specific know-how in Azure cloud platforms
  • It may be beneficial to have previously worked for an eCommerce or travel/tourism business, but this is not essential
