Your thirst for knowledge and learning combined with a demonstrable understanding of personal development will be an important consideration. Experience, or capability and an ambition for working in a client facing role is an absolute requirement for this position. If you can score highly in these three categories then our working environment, the range of technologies and the opportunity to deliver in an important role which will contribute towards the continued success of Zen, will be strong motivators for you. This role will enable you to gain further experience over a wide spectrum of technologies: eg SQL Server 2008 upwards, NOSQL Databases Elastic Search, AWS, RedShift, EC2, S3, VMWare ESX/ESXi, SAN/NAS, MI/BI Data Warehousing, Data Architecture, Data modelling, Network IP, AD, DNS, Firewalls, SCOM, TFS, PowerShell, Security ISO 27001, PCI-DSS, Agile, Scrum, DevOps. The ideal candidate for this position may not have experience in all these areas, but will be able to articulate a coherent understanding of key principles and demonstrate a desire and capacity for learning. This is not just a technical role, emphasis is also placed on interpersonal, communication and presentation skills, collaboration and team working. As parts of this role are customer-facing, a full driving license and willingness to travel are essential. This job was originally posted as
