**Please note we are recruiting this opportunity for 2023 start date**
As a Senior Azure Cloud Engineer, you are a practicing member of the team, designing, writing and testing code. You'll be competent at owning and delivering solutions and being the design authority for how features are implemented.
You can expect to use your knowledge of architecture; our clients will look to you for advice and contribution in higher level architectural discussions.
You're familiar with the development process, and take ownership for certain aspects of the process by putting appropriate methods and tools in place.
You will have regular conversations with clients, and be a point of contact between the client and the project team.
Coaching and mentoring more junior members of the team, and deputising for the team principal, will be important in the role.
Your involvement in shaping bids (working with a bid team) will assist to create approaches or proposals, and perhaps you may also add valuable contributions during presentations to clients in a formal selection process.
You'll play an active role in account management.
PA is a Azure Cloud Premier Partner and we create innovative solutions using the whole spectrum of Google Cloud products and services, as well as other leading cloud platforms.

"The thing I love most about working here is the people. I really enjoy working with people who make an effort to share knowledge, take mental health at work seriously, and care about addressing anything that isn’t working well."
We all work best when we feel valued, supported and life feels balanced, so we got the folks who actually work here to design our benefits.
