Role Description:

Defence Information requires Windows Scripting Engineers to support various MOD projects at Christchurch. The role will involve developing scripts to automate the installation and configuration of a wide range of applications and infrastructure components e.g. Exchange, Veeam, VMware.

  • Collaboration with other members of the agile team; sharing knowledge and peer reviewing others work.
  • Reporting on progress and providing feedback to team members and leadership.
  • Producing clear and concise technical documentation.
  • Using the Atlassian toolset (JIRA, Confluence and Bamboo) to record, document and test work.
  • Using Version Control mechanisms such as GIT and BitBucket to submit development code.
  • Occasional visits to customer sites to support deployment.
  • Essential Skills:
  • Powershell or C#.Net experience. Powershell experience would ideally include advanced coding features e.g. Workflows, Desired State Configuration and Bare Metal Deployment.
  • Windows Server 2012 R2
  • Windows 10 or Windows 7 Operating Systems
  • Active Directory
  • VMware virtualisation
  • Undertaking changes in a configuration controlled environment
  • Technical documentation production
