Head of Infrastructure (Cloud Azure) - Hedge Fund - London

I have recently been engaged by a small hedge fund in London who are looking for an ambitious, enthusistic, highly motivated, hands on and experienced Infrastructure Head to join their technology team.

To be successful in this role you will have a wealth of experience with current infrastructure technologies, from the Windows server stack, cloud services (Azure), virtualization technologies, to network switches and firewalls. You will bring all of these together with a DevOps mindset, and have the ability to identify business processes, lead the relationship with the firm managed services providers and help shape the strategic direction the firm’s infrastructure and cyber takes.

You will have responsibility for maintaining the complete Windows environment and the associated infrastructure around it, along with standing up new services and products as and when required. Even if you don’t have experience with a particular technology or product, you won’t be phased with the requirement to implement or configure it, and would embrace stepping outside of your comfort zone to take on the new challenge.

This role would really suit a solid all-rounder, with plenty of Infrastructure experience, who’s cut their teeth from the bottom up and relishes the idea of getting stuck into the technology on a daily basis.

  • Ensuring incident, problem and knowledge management with IT vendors to monitor and respond to incidents and requests in line with our agreed vendor service level agreements.

Technical Knowledge

  • Windows 10 Administration, builds, imaging, patch management
  • Office 365 – Full suite support & Administration
