Azure Solution Architect
For our strategic customers we are looking for an Azure Solutions Architect. This architect will act as a primary point of contact and will be responsible for the coherence between all ongoing projects, production environments and the intake of new projects for the team.
Sentia has a large group of appealing customers. We build up a close relationship with these customers, resulting in a 100% outsourcing recommendation score according to Giarte. Sentia's goal is to grow with our existing customers for the coming years. In addition, we would like to add new appealing customers to the Sentia family, and for that we need you! For our customers we design, manage and operate their IT environment and supporting infrastructure on Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and our Sentia Cloud.
Your role will mainly focus on the Azure stack. You will not only 'lead the way' with our customers, but also execute the implementation
Together with the project manager and the customer you will ensure a good architecture. You help the client to make choices for the implementations. Because of your knowledge you know what choices have consequences and what conditions must be met for a successful implementation.
"Follow my lead" is not only written on your Sentian Sweater, you make it true like no other. You take the customer through the entire process so that the process runs as smoothly as possible.

Starting to work at Sentia, you will be assigned a buddy. Your buddy is a colleague who familiarizes you with your team, the systems, culture and way of working. You will also be introduced to the clients.
During the initial period, you will mostly be busy learning how we work. You will need to understand our standard of IaC coding, our deployment mechanisms and our operational processes. You will also work on preparing a number of releases, to learn our way of working, hands-on. Following that, you’ll also get to know all the customer systems, while participating in support and projects. In this way, you learn immediately about the environments used by your customers.
Luckily, we work with a clear process at Sentia and everything is clearly documented. You can also approach your colleagues with any questions you may have.

At Sentia, you get all the space you need to develop your talents. We are convinced that you can only lead the way by continuing to develop yourself. That’s why we do everything we can to constantly innovate with you in both technology and your personal skills. Your colleagues regularly attend events like DevOps days, Microsoft events / trainings and AWS events / trainings and you are always given space to earn the latest certifications in AWS, Azure, Windows, Linux, Ansible, Python, Powershell, Ruby, MongoDB, Oracle, Apache, JBoss and Splunk ... or whatever you need!
