    • Enable cloud platform engineering and operational teams as well as application owners/project teams to share innovative approaches through appropriate review and guidance processes.
    • Contribute to the production-ready architectural design of business applications, focusing on IaaS/PaaS designs by defining cloud policies, standards, guidelines, and reference materials

    Highly Desirable Experience
    • Amazon Web Services (AWS), including architecture, design, development, deployment, and maintenance of a SaaS product; hands-on experience with most common AWS tools, resources, and services
    • Containerized application development (Docker, Kubernetes, Helm, etc.)
