Our client is expanding their Windows Server automation capability based on Red Hat Ansible Tower. The capability includes deployment and management of Windows Server to over 80 locations globally, covering VMWare and Azure environments.

This position is offered at an initial 6 month contract working a 40 hour week and can be a 100% remote work role and open to candidates based anywhere in Australia. Due to the requirements working as part of a Global team, the successful candidate must be prepared to work 2 nights per week till 10.30PM AWST (standard 8 hour work day applies).

The role requires a significant amount of co-ordination (with existing Ansible users), collaboration (with Ansible service owner) and administration activities (placing orders, change control, downtime notifications) in addition to technical expertise.
