* Build deep relationships with senior client stakeholders to enable them with the necessary understanding of solutions being proposed

* Proven experience architecting systems built upon public cloud technologies (AWS/Azure/O365)
* 3+ years professional experience in a technical design and/or implementation related field
* Excellent understanding of fundamental concepts such as platform availability, networking, security, authentication, virtualisation, and WAN technologies.
* AZ900, MS900/intermediate level Azure accreditations
What will make your application stand out?
* Microsoft Azure Solutions Architect (MCSD)
* ITIL certified
* Project Management methodologies such as Agile/PMP/Prince 2

Here at Littlefish we’re committed to promoting and monitoring Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI).
By collating EDI data we can monitor both our workforce composition and recruitment and selection processes, which in turn gives us facts and figures around equal opportunities, our diversity demographic and how inclusive we are at every stage in the process. Littlefish has grown rapidly over the last few years and as we evolve it is important to us to be able to understand and respond to our current and future workforce. Our aim is to be able to categorically demonstrate our positive reach in line with the Equality Act. The data we capture as part of selection process will only be used for the purpose in which it is intended for (anonymous data reporting), will be stored centrally in our HR Department, disregarded in a timely manner and will not be used to form part of any decision making.
