Wil jij jouw kennis van Windows en Azure technologie inzetten in een dynamische omgeving?
The job in a nutshell
As Azure and Windows Server engineer, you support with the implementation, monitoring and maintenance of Finance applications that are designed, deployed, and running in Microsoft Azure Cloud. There we currently multiple Azure subscriptions in use for different Azure DTAP environments, with a total of around 1000 servers. An example is Azure DTAP for Risk Agility FM / HPC application environments that is used for financial modelling within Aegon NL. Examples of Azure services that are currently in use are virtual machines used for development, backups, file servers, SQL databases and storage.
As Azure and Windows Server engineer, you provide technical support and day to day assistance to +/-175 data/model developers and finance/actuarial specialists. This means deploying and granting virtual machines, troubleshooting, debugging in case of incidents and contacting Microsoft helpdesk in case incidents cannot be resolved by yourself. Short and close collaboration when dealing with incidents and/or support is very important. For example, you work closely with modelling run specialists and provide them real time analysis in case there are issues with production runs. You also monitor that the access to the services does not surpass the line of what users need to do their work, and not more than that, and that extra access is first approved by the management.
You also support application upgrades, liaise with 3rd party application providers, and monitor and recommend improvements for a stable and cost efficient use of Azure services. For example, if virtual machines are running but not being used, you advise to schedule them only during office hours. In other words, you serve as a trusted advisor to the domain owners of the software development teams and management.
Finally, close collaboration with global IT departments and together with them patching of Azure services used to eliminate bug fixes, security vulnerabilities, etc. are in scope of the function.
