Cloud Architect


Vandis is looking for a Cloud Architect/Engineer focusing on Azure and hybrid cloud solutions for clients in the upper mid-market to enterprise space. You will be a technical and thought leader for the Azure practice. You'll be responsible for leading remote and on-site sales meetings, documenting client requirements, proposing a solution, and finally implementation.

If you have serious experience with the server and network infrastructures required to run high-performing corporate applications, then we want to give you the ability to help grow and lead one of our fastest growing practice areas.

This is a hands-on role. You must be able to talk the talk and walk the walk. Our model is unique. We find value in our engineers being involved in the project from start to finish.


· Migration Management and Execution. You will be responsible for working directly with our clients to plan and implement their entire application portfolio migration to Azure. This includes assessing their ability to move, deploying the appropriate infrastructure, performance testing, and documenting operational changes.

· Account Education. You will lead our clients to explore how they can take advantage of the complete Azure platform including IaaS, PaaS, and other technologies such as Azure ExpressRoute, Functions, and Containers. You will need to architect their roadmap and help them embrace the vision. Familiarity with application development is a big plus.

· Assessments & Engagement. You will lead hands-on workshops with our clients who are just beginning the journey into the cloud. You’ll help them understand the basics of the platform, do initial planning on how to migrate their applications and deploy initial hybrid workloads (configuring VPNs, setting up operating portals, deploying IaaS VMs, and leveraging PaaS). The final step is moving and testing an actual production workload.

· Vision and Architecture. You must be able to impart to our clients how advanced cloud architectures using both IaaS and PaaS will enhance their agility and ability to rapidly deliver solutions to their organization.

· Facilitate technical discussions and whiteboarding for project migration and technical solutions.

· Produce and manage client-facing documentation, including proposals, change management plans, and end-user documentation.

· Conduct pilots and help customers envision complete solution.

Required Experience:

· 6+ years of infrastructure consulting or implementation experience. Application development experience a big plus.

· 6+ years of working directly with businesses/customers to understand business needs and applying technology solutions to those requirements.

· Experience moving workloads from on-premises to IaaS (AWS, Rackspace, Azure, etc.) a big plus. Knowledge of SQL Server configuration and fundamentals is another big plus.

· Advanced networking knowledge, including the full OSI model, BGP, cloud-interconnect, load balancers, hybrid networking. Knowledge of the other major cloud networking architectures is a plus (AWS, Google).

· Ability to design the architectures for integrating core infrastructure technologies in support of enterprise applications.

· Demonstrated understanding of application infrastructure architecture fundamentals.

· Demonstrated experience in broad architectural skills, customer facilitation, and solution selling.

· Experience with virtualization, storage, and networking architecture.

· Experience moving workloads from physical to virtual environments.

· Strong Active Directory skills, including Group Policy Administration, Replication and Deployment experience.

· Automation experience is a big plus, as is any DevOps/Configuration Management (Terraform, PowerShell DSC, Puppet, etc.).
