The Purpose Driven Career Objectives of a Senior AWS Solutions Architect (Migrations Specialist)

Cloud-Bridge are a fast-paced start-up specialising in the delivery of technical professional services for the public cloud – primarily Amazon Web Services (AWS). We want to change the way that people look at and use cloud services as we believe that any organisation from small start-ups to large multinationals can unleash the power of these services to improve their business.

We work with IT Services providers and enable them to identify opportunities for their customers looking at public cloud solutions. We work seamlessly with their sales and technical teams to scope the opportunities before working with their customers to implement effective technical solutions. A key growth area for the business is migrating customers into AWS. In particular, we are helping several FTSE100 companies and public sector organisations to move from legacy on-premises data centres, into AWS. Often the first step of these migrations is a “lift-and-shift”, but we’re also seeing increasing appetite for modernisation and refactoring.

We are scaling our migration team, and are looking for a solutions architect with a background in Windows technologies, including MS SQL, and clustering technologies such as Always On and Windows Failover Clustering. Active Directory is often a key component of successful migrations, and so we need someone with a strong background in AD, too.

We are looking for a person who is excellent at engaging in technical discussions and can lead by example,  spreading their knowledge and working as a part of our team of architects to design, build and deliver solutions on AWS. We have established ourselves as a sociable and approachable company whether this is internally or at external / customer events so the ideal candidate should be both technically confident and sociably comfortable in front of people.

To apply for Senior AWS Solutions Architect (Migrations Specialist), you are excellent at:

  • Participate in technical pre-sales activities (supporting the commercial teams)
  • Capture customer requirements and present technical solution options
  • Produce detailed technical solution designs
  • Implement, test and handover cloud solutions on AWS
  • Migrate workloads into AWS
  • Investigate and implement automation, time-saving and efficiency tools and approaches where possible

Your Success Profile includes:

  • At least 3 years of related work experience
  • Demonstrable AWS cloud solution design, build and migration skills
  • Strong understanding of cloud services and infrastructure components (IAAS/PAAS)
  • Solid technical troubleshooting skills
  • Experience producing high and low-level technical designs
  • Excellent documentation skills across technical and operational process areas
  • Strong time and task management with the ability to manage multiple simultaneous projects
  • Strong interpersonal skills with experience in a customer-facing role
  • Experience in migrating on-premises workloads into AWS
  • Experience in Windows technologies such as Windows Failover Clustering, MS SQL and Active Directory
  • MS SQL Database Administration experience – primarily from an infrastructure perspective
  • Preferred Skills:
    • Current valid AWS ‘Solutions Architect’, ‘SysOps Administrator’ or ‘Developer’ Associate certification 
      (or equivalent skills/experience)
    • Experience of CloudFormation for building AWS infrastructure as code
    • Experience of developing reference architectures, standards, and frameworks
    • Experience of other cloud automation and orchestration tools/services e.g. Terraform, Ansible, Chef, Puppet)
    • Knowledge and experience of CI/CD pipeline tools e.g. CodeCommit/Build/Deploy/Pipeline, Jenkins, GitLab CI
