Join our 17-strong Infrastructure team, and you will have a fantastic opportunity to work with key secure technologies, develop specialist knowledge and skills, and enjoy some fantastic Civil Service benefits - all while helping to safeguard people, assets and information around the world.

Fix complex infrastructure issues as quickly as possible

As a subject matter expert within our 3rd line team, you'll be responsible for solving the more complex technical problems and incidents that other engineers are unable to work out. The job involves working closely with Infrastructure teammates, as well as architects, project managers, developers and incident managers, in order to fix technical problems as quickly as possible. You will also need to identify and escalate repeatable issues to help ensure they do not happen again.

Use your expertise to benefit colleagues and customers alike

You'll be expected to mentor junior staff members and to provide authoritative technical advice to a wide range of customers and stakeholders, including members of our change management team. It is therefore essential that you combine excellent communication skills with a solid understanding of how systems work.

Specific areas of knowledge we're looking for include:

  • VMWare experience
  • HLD/LLD Design exposure
  • vSphere
  • vRealise
  • ESXi
