The organisation uses ARM Templates and BICEP for their IaC deployments into Azure along with Powershell for most automation tasks, they use Github as a repository along with Github Actions so these skills are very desirable.
On-Premise automation tasks are primarily done using Powershell so experience in non-cloud based automation is also required.
In addition to the implementation, coding and automation skills the role will also include general support of the Azure environment so a thorough knowledge of the components listed in the 'Azure Required Skills' from a support and performance tuning perspective is also required.
The other aspect of the role will be documentation and transition into operations which will involve handover to the BAU teams.
