* Manage and maintain standards for DevOps tools used across the organisation
* Contribute to future design/architecture solutions that directly impact the business

What have you done?

* AWS experience (e.g EC2, EBS, S3, VPC, IAM, CloudWatch)
* CDN experience (e.g. Akamai, Limelight, Fastly, etc)
* Experience with configuration management tools (e.g. Puppet, Terraform, Ansible, Docker and Kubernetes)
