Additional Details from Hiring Manager:
About the role:
  • The HM team's main application is client’s website.
  • The website's front end is built in React.  It is running on PCF (Pivotal Cloud Foundry) and has several microservices in PCF.  They use Adobe Experience Manager on the backend.
  • There are two projects this person will be focused on (1 big and 1 small)
  • The smaller project: This person will be working to move the Team Site to Adobe Experience Manager. 
  • They are in the last mile of this piece now. Their CDN (Content Delivery Network) is on Team Site and in order to get it off they have two parts: part 1 is public data (they have a solution for this already) and part 2 is the authenticated (private) files. The piece she needs the help with is getting the authenticated files onto CDN.  They plan to do a POC (proof of concept) on an Azure Solution for this piece, so this architect would help finish this project first and then move onto the bigger project.
  • The bigger project: moving client’s website from PCF to Azure.
  • All major applications at the clients (Private Passport, Wealth Passport, Public Websites, etc) all have the same architecture and are all working to move from PCF to Azure, as well.
  • Need someone with hands on PCF and Azure experience to be able to architect/direct, lead and execute the transition.
  • Bachelors degree in Computer Science, Information Technology, or related field is highly preferred.
  • Hands on experience and strong knowledge of Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF)
  • Previous hands-on experience building out Microsoft Azure
  • 7+ years of experience as a Cloud Architect
  • Experience with Infrastructure as Code (IaC) tool: Terraform.
  • Strong communication to articulate technical problems efficiently
  • Team Player mentality - must be able to work well with others
  • Leadership qualities
Additional notes about skillset:
  • Previous experience building out Microsoft Azure in the past is very important
  • NOT someone who just "knows Azure," but someone who has truly been hands on.  Need to be able to speak to a tangible project to show they've done that work before.
  • This person will be a leader.  Need to lead the other architects 'down the path'.  They already have a large architecture team at client, so this person will work in tandem with that team and her own team to define the architecture and help them get to where they need to be.
  • Need someone to help build the architecture AND help implement.  Not someone who will just define, but someone who can "do", as well.  Someone who isn't scared to get their hands dirty.
