The Job

VMware Project Engineer - VMware specialist, VCP, virtualisation, 3rd line support, project work, design & build - edge of Bournemouth - mix of design and project work to drive on the datacentre infrastructure

As a specialist or 'subject matter expert' you'll join a small team focused on the continuous improvement of large datacentre environments. Your core skills will be around VMware and backup & resilient infrastructure but the journey they are on is working towards hyper-converged infrastructure and a hybrid cloud model and there's a good budget for training and genuine support to develop your skills in these areas. You'll be part of shaping that overall strategy and the role will be a mix of design and hands on build as well as evaluating new technology and making recommendations to the business that will contribute to the overall technical roadmap.

You will have a strong project and support experience of most of the following in large or enterprise scale environments -

  • VMware (ideally version 6)
  • SAN Storage (they use EMC but could be an equivalent solution)
  • Backup Solutions
  • Basic networking and datacentre connectivity principles

If you have any of the following experience, even if theoretical or proof of concept then that's a bonus! -

  • Fibre Channel Networking
  • Cisco UCS or converged infrastructure

Current or previous VCP certification or any VCP level training courses (as evidence of your level of VMware experience) would be useful too but certainly not essential.

The role is based on the Eastern edge of Bournemouth so commuting (and parking!) are a little easier than getting to the centre with other members of this team commuting from a mix of Southampton, Salisbury, Winchester and Portsmouth.

In return a salary of up to £55k is on offer (dependant on experience level) with a package that includes a bonus, an on call standby allowance (which is 1 in 4 but with a low volume of incidents and issues due to the stability of the existing infrastructure) as well as occasional paid overtime on offer for projects, which will take the package in to the 60's

For more information or if you're not quite at this level yet then please feel free give me a call or get in touch via LinkedIn -/andyslateruk - the number listed in the advert is my direct dial. I work with a number of national and international companies, solution providers, MSP's and consultancies across the UK with a focus on Cloud technologies so if this role was a little below your ideal salary, a bit too far to travel or not making the most of your experience then please get in touch to discuss other opportunities.
