A client of mine - a leading hedge fund, are looking for an ambitious, enthusiastic, highly motivated and experienced Infrastructure Engineer to join their technology team. To be successful in this role you will have a wealth of experience with current infrastructure technologies, from the Windows server stack (With particular emphasis on PowerShell), cloud services, virtualization technologies, to network switches and firewalls. You will bring all of these together with a DevOps mindset, and have the ability to identify business processes where this can be applied. You will have responsibility for maintaining the complete Windows environment and the associated infrastructure around it, along with standing up new services and products as and when required. To keep things running efficiently your first thought would be to turn to automation, and writing PowerShell scripts (And checking them into source control) is as natural to you as provisioning a new user mailbox within Exchange (Via PowerShell of course). Even if you don't have experience with a particular technology or product, you won't be phased with the requirement to implement or configure it, and would embrace stepping outside of your comfort zone to take on the new challenge.
