AEVI is an influential and innovative Leader in the global payments landscape who are looking to hire an experienced Infrastructure Automation Architect.

How will you add value on a day-to-day basis?

You will be responsible for provisioning the AWS cloud based infrastructure with an Oracle database layer and the supporting network upon which our portfolio of payment applications reside. You will be responsible for all aspects of all environments. Automation is key - automating any task that has the capacity to be automated will be required.

You'll work closely with the various project teams, Product Managers and Product Owners to support the business, providing the foundation upon which they can turn their visions into reality.

You will be the advocate for all process automation, ensuring everyone knows how best to deliver to you and advising on best practices to ensure a true one click environment is realised.

You will work alongside our security and compliance officers to ensure all aspects of the infrastructure are compliant with all industry mandates and regulations.

You will also work alongside our third party providers, building a strong relationship and taking the lead to ensure our environments are fully robust and fit for global operation.

What will make you the ideal candidate?

We will want you to demonstrate clear understanding of the dev ops world. We use tools like GIT, Terraform, Puppet, Packer, Yum, Jenkins Consul - you will need to demonstrate you know how these tools fit together and potentially offer options that could improve our toolkit. Our world is fully Linux…but every now and then a Windows server appears - this shouldn't be a problem for you. And, of course, knowledge of AWS and its myriad of tools is a must.

You will need to show leadership and confidence - able to converse with all parts of the organisation from Strategy Director to Tester. There will be problems - you need to show that you are the person to turn to in order to solve them. And documentation to the highest standard will be expected
