Description and Requirements

As an Information Technology Engineer, you engage in and improve the whole lifecycle of IT services, from inception and design, to deployment, operation, and refinement. You use your technology acumen to provide input to evaluate new technologies and contribute to the design, lifecycle management, and total cost of ownership of services. You contribute to research and proof-of-concept initiatives for new technologies and assist with solution architectural, design, and engineering reviews. You support system design consulting, developing service platforms and frameworks, capacity planning, and readiness reviews of services before they are Generally Available (GA).

- You write, organize, and maintain systems engineering blueprints and Infrastructure-as-Code based on designs. 

- You engineer high-performance, scalable, repeatable, and secure deliverables with guidance.

- You participate in structured construction, automation, debugging, and implementation activities, ensuring architectural and operational requirements and best practices are met. 

- You participate in disaster recovery planning and disaster recovery activities, participate in functional integration and regression testing and have the ability to automate test scripts.
