We have an excellent opportunity for two Infrastructure Engineers to join our talented Servers and Storage team. 

This is an exciting time to join the team as we look ahead to transition our services from on-prem to cloud.

About the department:

The Servers and Storage team sits within the wider Digital, Data and Technology department which enables the staff and students at the University to enjoy a seamless experience of the IT infrastructure for learning, teaching & research.

The servers and storage team runs the fundamental functions of the design, implementation, operation, and maintenance of core IT infrastructure. 

Digital, Data and Technology department aims to provide a technological environment that matches the University's international, teaching and research reputation, and which contributes to the realisation of its key institutional strategies. It strives to respond intuitively to both the ever-evolving needs of our users, and the wide diversity of those users through the exploration of new and emerging technologies.

About the role:

The Infrastructure Engineer is a pivotal role in advancing the Universities digital capabilities to be more user-centred, more agile, and eventually cloud-based.

This role will be involved in all phases of the development of new services, maintenance of current systems, changes, and system upgrades, using requisite functional and technical expertise in a timely and cost-effective manner. The post holder will contribute significantly to third-tier support processes, resolving problems, documenting root causes, and improving service levels.

We’re looking for someone who is self-motivated, enjoys a range of technically challenging work, and an excellent problem solver with a passion for emerging technologies.
