- Analyse and update test architecture to be as cost-effective and performant as possible (e.g. reserved instances vs. on demand vs. spot instance).
- Support the tech team in provisioning new environments for testing and development, ensuring the solutions are easy to instigate and cost-effective to use.
- Working with the tech team to automate processes wherever possible.
- Working with the tech team on cloud-based software architecture design to better use existing AWS functionality and reduce DIY code.
- Day to day support and maintenance of production infrastructure for security, reliability, performance, cost and scalability
