Senior Infrastructure Consultant – Microsoft in United Kingdom

Novosco has long been established as a leading provider of high quality IT solutions and is now seeking to recruit a Senior Infrastructure Consultant to address a growing number of customer engagements around Microsoft products. This role requires both significant customer engagement and engagement with internal Novosco teams in order to design, deliver and support high quality cloud solutions using public or hybrid cloud technology, complemented by Novosco’s existing solution portfolio.

Job description

Along with excellent people skills, the post requires excellent knowledge of cloud technologies derived from the execution of production grade cloud projects or cloud related product development.  Since cloud technologies are constantly evolving, it’s crucial that the successful applicant is willing to keep up to date with the latest industry developments on an ongoing basis and share such knowledge both internally and externally, with our customers and in supporting Novosco’s activities within local technology communities.
