Avanade Inc. Infrastucture Consultant in Toronto, Canada
About The Job
Our Infrastructure Services function manages the systems that keep us and our clients ahead of the pack. As a consultant, you will design, install and configure enterprise technology architecture. Your knowledge and technical expertise in systems design will support and respond to client needs.
As a specialist partner to technology and design teams, you will work together to integrate technology, operations and solutions requirements into relevant strategies. Alongside this, you will create supporting documentation, including design, build and operations guides.
Working directly with clients, you will help identify opportunities and manage the transformation to new technology environments. You will also define and set up information technology processes, procedures and toolsets.
Designing and conducting systems integration testing (SIT), component integration testing (CIT), and user acceptance testing (UAT) is a core part of the role, ensuring a smooth transition from testing to implementation, and issue resolution.
Within your team, you will ensure other project team members are leveraging offshore resources. You will also play a key role as mentor, identifying and encouraging the next generation of Avanade technologists.
Since this role is often extremely technical, we look for candidates with a BA in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, MIS, Information Technology, or similar. In some circumstances, a combination of education and experience is acceptable.
We are interested in your experience of infrastructure solutions, particularly in relation to Microsoft programs, platform migration, system security and cloud technologies. We also want to hear about your experience of working internationally with offsite teams to facilitate work.
Since you will often be working directly with clients, you will need outstanding communication skills. You will be able to make complex infrastructure systems sound simple and interesting. In other words, you will be more interested in showing our clients how well a product works for them than telling them how brilliantly we’ve made it.
