CLIENT is looking for a seasoned engineer with a focus on the AWS delivery. Do you love to deploy Infrastructure as Code and thrive on setting up AWS environments with Cloud Formation and Terraform? Can you setup a VPC in your sleep and use Ansible Tower to make magic happen? We are transforming how we do business and need people who are excited about helping us move from our legacy datacenter to the cloud while at the same time transforming our delivery model to DevOps. We are moving fast to transform how we deliver technology and we want your help!

Experience with tools like Ansible and Jenkins (or equivalent) is a plus as well.
