Azure Engineer (contract)

  • €500 per day
  • 6 month contract
  • Remote working

Our client is a large Irish enterprise based in Dublin and they are seeking a Senior Azure Infrastructure Engineer to join their IT Operations team on a 6-month contract. You will play a key role in migrating their existing server infrastructure to Azure as well as up-skill some of the existing staff on Azure technologies.

The current server environment consists of 900 (mostly Windows) Servers, spread across two Dublin data centres. 80% of these Servers are VMware VMs, and over the coming months the aim is to begin migrating VMs to the Azure cloud. They are also looking to adopt a cloud-first approach for new services as soon as the cloud environment is established.

Remote working for now but they might require 1 or 2 days onsite post restrictions.

Responsibilities include:

  • Project work relating to configuring Azure resources, AAD and other Azure service
  • Providing insights that will assist in the formulation of a robust cloud strategy, including options for high-availability, DR, backups, and cost-efficient practices
  • Helping to identify the Servers and applications that are prime candidates for migration to the cloud
  • Planning and completing migrations as required, ensuring that downtime is kept to a minimum
  • Troubleshooting and resolving migration and cloud-related issues (eg permissions, connectivity and performance)
  • Assist as required with other day-to-day Operations tasks (such as backups, patching and upgrades) and troubleshooting of the on-premise Windows infrastructure

Some of the key technical requirements include:

  • Virtual Machines
  • Virtual Networking
  • Network Security Groups
  • User Defined Routing
  • Network Virtual Appliances
  • Private Endpoints
  • Private DNS
  • Application Gateway and Azure Front Door
  • Implementation and troubleshooting
  • WAF rules and troubleshooting
  • ARM template and PowerShell design and deployment
  • Cosmos DB
  • Web and Function Apps
  • Logic Apps
  • Monitoring

Azure qualifications, and 3+ years working in a medium to large Azure infrastructure would be preferable too.
