Senior Azure Cloud Engineer

Our client in Salem, VA is looking to bring on a Senior Azure Cloud Engineer. Candidates must have experience with Azure Portal, writing customer Terraform scripts, leading cloud migrations/doing hands on cloud migration work.

*This position can sit 100% remotely*

*Our client is open to both direct hires as well as contract to hire depending on candidate preference*

Top 3 Skills: Our client is looking for people who have demonstrable skill sets. The candidates that they've run into in the past look great on paper, however they aren't able to get hands on and work through the hands-on technical piece. They have to be able to demonstrate their experience, not just speak on their experience. The CTO mentioned that the top things that they're looking for demonstrable experience on are:

1. Actual Practical understanding of Azure- This is specifically working on an azure cloud migration from a hands-on perspective. Specifically being able to work through an Azure portal or Command Prompt. They need engineers who have shown the ability to create scripts, policies, code, procedures on their own and from scratch. Not relying on anybody else to do this for them.

2. Terraform- This individual will need to be a Terraform expert, using it mostly every day. This person will be expected to be put in front of a screen and write a Terraform script from scratch. Candidates have fallen short due to having experience copying and pasting a template but not creating scripts from scratch. These folks will likely come from a smaller organization where they've had to be hands-on from A-Z.

3. Cloud Migration Experience- This person will need to have previous experience taking part in a cloud migration. The ideal candidate will have previous experience leading & "doing" a cloud migration.

*Interested Candidates should respond with the most up to date copy of their resume along with ALL relevant experience listed as well as the best number to be reached*
