Stewardship, from its start in 1906, has had one clear focus; serving the church and sharing the message of overwhelming generosity. We are Christian and passionately Kingdom minded as well as being professional and continually striving to passionately pursue excellence.
Based in the City of London, we employ about 80 people and are actively seeking to recruit a new team member with drive, energy and a strong commitment to our Christian vision and ethos.
The creation of first-class products and capabilities that will help deliver against Stewardship’s mission must be unpinned by a world class hosting platform. The decision has been made that this fundamental building block for the success of our digital strategy for the future will be Azure and now we require a suitable talent to help drive forward our cloud strategy delivery.
As a small team at the start of the journey we need someone who brings good infrastructure experience and that knows Azure, but is perhaps frustrated by restrictive team structures in their current role – who is ready to release the shackles, move from reading blog posts and start delivering on technical challenges. You may currently be infrastructure centric, but you have the ability to think like a Developer and you embrace the “as code” future.
By summer 2021 we plan to re-platform production from co-located Hyper-V to Azure, embrace Azure Cloud DevOps as the foundation of our SDLC toolchain and augment this with the Infrastructure as Code deployment and configuration management tools needed to deliver. We then plan to refactor our in house core software product, reducing release cycles from months to weeks as we move to update code and shift to cloud native containers and DBaaS hosting while integrating other products (SaaS, PaaS or acquired code) to deliver the next generation of Stewardship services.
We’d love to hear from you if you have exposure to and experience in Azure, experience in Windows system administration including configuration and troubleshooting, hands-on experience in automating the deployment and monitoring of services in Azure, understanding of the core concepts and designs to implement Cloud platforms for elasticity and scalability, and some experience in infrastructure as code.
