IT Infrastructure Virtualization Architect
As member of IT Infrastructure Development and Architecture you will be a part of a department that is responsible for the IT infrastructure on a global scale. The department has the design authority for a lot of different technologies: Network, Compute, Storage, Virtual server/client environments, Operating systems, Active Directory, Management suites, Security solutions and systems such as IP telephony, Exchange and Skype for Business. This means that you will have to interact with many stakeholders both within and outside the department, but at the same time you will have the possibility to influence many systems and processes.
Your responsibility as IT Infrastructure Virtualization Architect will predominantly be in the area of designing, implementing and maintaining a virtual end user computing (EUC) environment, currently based on Citrix XenApp and VMware Horizon.
The ambition is to consolidate on VMware Horizon and to ensure a high degree of automation and self-service.
Besides the technical responsibilities it is also expected that you will create and maintain a governance model incl. service descriptions, cost models etc. for the virtual EUC concept.
Furthermore you should expect some degree of 3rd level support for the area.
Finally you will also be expected to participate in the area of general VMware related tasks for the virtual server environment e.g. maintenance of the platform, major upgrades, new installations and intake on new services etc.
You will play a central role in realizing the strategy, supporting the business to reach its goals.
You will become part of an international department of highly experienced & skilled infrastructure architects and specialists, located mainly in Europe. You will be working closely together with other infrastructure specialists as well as colleagues from the application areas within IT.
You will be the key responsible person for driving the development and implementation of the Virtual desktop and application platform. This includes analysis of how services can be migrated from the XenApp platform onto the Horizon platform.
Since not all services can be migrated immediately you should expect to become responsible for a dual vendor setup consisting of Citrix XenApp and VMWare Horizon. The operation of XenApp is currently outsourced but the architectural ownership still resides internally and you should expect to participate in 3rd level troubleshooting across the stack.
Together with colleagues in the Infrastructure Development and Architecture department and other parts of IT you will be building and implementing new solutions for MAN Diesel & Turbo and you must be able to manage technical project implementation with a well-documented handover to the operational department and outsourcing partners.
