About You

If you’re reading this, you love Technology and want to be in a business where you are using cutting edge tools and delivering best of breed solutions for hosted environments. You’ll not be scared of AWS or Azure and be strangely attracted to the thought of the Google Compute Engine without knowing why! You’ll know not to look up when someone talks of Clouds and understand that Hybrid Cloud isn’t one which rains on one side and snows on the other.

You’re sure you’ve got a plan but not sure where it’s taking you even though you’re convinced you need to be in a role which marries Technology and Solutions Building. Finally, you’ve experience of the Lego building blocks which holds together the internet: Networking, Servers, Storage, Virtualisation and more. You may not be an expert in all of them but will be able to embarrass us with your drive to learn.

As one of the UK’s top three Cloud Solutions companies – the one with the reputation for impeccable client service - we can afford to be choosy. We’re looking for Solutions Architects in a number of locations. You must be driven: a natural enthusiast, a great communicator, inspirational, irresistibly persuasive, extremely bright and convinced that unleashing the benefits of hosting is the reason we were put on the planet.

About Us:

Our mission is to be No 1 in the UK. That means attracting the best people. Better people, happier customers, more opportunities. Everyone here agrees that it is a cool environment and our HR statistics say the same: once we hire someone, we can’t get rid of them.

Only apply if you want to make a technical difference and are confident and capable of convincing those that have no clue on how to transform their business to meet the cloud

The Solutions Architect Role:

+ As a Solutions Architect, you are required to work closely with the sales function to assist in accurate client requirement capture, solution design, solution pricing and presentation along with the creation and preparation of documentation to support the sales proposal and contract process.
+ You will work with the Technical Services Director to assist with the identification of products and services which would serve to develop our portfolio of managed services products
+ You will work to gain skills relevant to your position with specific emphasis on Storage, Backup, Replication and Hyper Cloud Services

What it takes

If you’re hard working and ambitious, genuinely enjoy building rapport and trust with existing and potential clients, and you’re obsessed with cloud technology, you’re halfway there.

At Entry

+ Broad understanding of hosting and infrastructure technologies including:
++ VMWare
++ Hyper V
++ Dell Server and Storage Family
++ EMC Software and Storage Solutions
+ Working knowledge of Hyper Cloud providers such as AWS and Azure
+ Good knowledge of the Managed Hosting sector, related products and its dynamics
+ Have excellent written and verbal communication skills
+ Excellent operational delivery skills

For Excellence

+ Experience of technical pre-sales in a hosted environment
+ Expertise in server hardware and software, Cisco networking and security technology, Linux and Windows environments and deployment of clustered/mirrored robust database architectures.
+ Experience in attaining industry compliance standards

What we offer in return:

+ Great place to work
+ We’ll shout you to lunch once a month
