Azure Architect

Location: Hartford
Posted on: May 17, 2022

Job Description:

Must Have:

  • 5+ years of Azure architecture / engineering experience. Someone who understands Azure services completely and can be recommending what the best practices are to put into play
  • 10+ years of overall IT experience, specifically having experience within infrastructure (networking) NOT applications focused
  • Strong Network Engineering background
  • Security Scanning experience

    Whitelisting aka Secure Hub Initiative at a High level:
    • CVS is an enterprise IT practice. They've established framework that has become an entry point for all of their enterprise applications to get deployed. They have the framework built but they don't have all of the best practices around security in place right now, which is what they need this resource to come help with. The framework right now is critical but they have taken a fast approach here when it comes to their Drive to the Cloud initiatives.
    • Drive to the Cloud : CVS has a massive enterprise-wide initiative to push as many applications/databases/systems, etc. to the cloud (Azure, GCP and AWS) and decommission old legacy applications.
    • Every enterprise application needs to pass through this Secure Hub in order for the application to properly be deployed and effectively work. The issue that they're running into is that when an application gets deployed in Azure - it is talking to other areas within this Hub but some of these applications are being blocked due to not being able to get through this framework and configure based on the lack of security protocols in place. For example, if an application requires internet access but the internet is not working when you're trying to access the application, there could be interferences based off of security protocols that are currently in place or lack of. They need an Azure expert to be able to come in and consult with the internal CVS teams to give recommendations around what protocols should be in place in order for them to effectively pass through the Secure Hub.
    • Once these protocols are put in place, the cloud engineering group would take it to a secure test area, scan it against Azure policies and scan the environment to determine if the environment is meeting the correct security controls or not - if it is, great - it's ready to be deployed and pass through the SecureHub. If it doesn't meet these standards, how do you adjust that and what needs to be changed? From there, the applications should be able to pass through the SecureHub and effectively work without a glitch when the users are accessing, all while being as protected from cyber security threats as much as possible
    • This resource will be working very closely with the Engineering teams, specifically the cloud engineering and network engineering teams.
    • Security piece: this person must understand the security protocols at a high level - they will be working with an internal security resource with on this initiative so they do not need to be an SME security cloud architect, but they need to be an SME within Azure in order to understand how to work with various teams around what needs to be in place in order for these applications to effectively work
    • Must have a STRONG background in Networking - hands on experience applying infrastructure with automation
