Infrastructure Specialist

We are seeking a superhero to join our team at Hiscox and deliver a world class service to our business 

Your superpower will be Powershell, you will know your Azure, Windows, RedHat and VMWare infrastructure even more than the Avengers know how to assemble

You will be experienced working with infrastructure services and will enjoy working with a team of others on dynamic projects that will include deployment with Puppet and Terraform (server based rather than colonising new planets)

Previously you’ll have deployed enterprise services over live and test environments and be comfortable working with a code centric approach to infrastructure development. You’ll know your server and storage arrays your SAN from your NAS as well as your Brocade from your HP and will be comfortable working with WSUS and Ivanti or similar otherworldly technology


Our business is fast moving, quick to decide and we have rapidly evolving targets and priorities. You will be used to working in a similar environment and will have the ability to work in a self-motivated and confident manner with those that work within IT as well as business service users


You will be the primary technical contact for technical areas, coordinating with stakeholders and technical colleagues as required. You’ll be able to contribute to planning, design and delivery of IT projects and the move towards a more code centric infrastructure model. You will know your IaaS, PaaS and SaaS, enable suitability for provisioning, testing and deployment of infrastructure and will be comfortable working within the agile IT delivery model, loosely coupled around ITIL with Delivery as a Service at the forefront


This role would equivocate to a third line support role in other businesses however with the autonomous and responsible manner you will bring to the business we are open to talking about your technical skills rather than your seniority
