Your contribution will create a cloud-architected CMS infrastructure, enabling a rapid scale-up / scale-down of infra components and therefore you enable the DevOps methodology for our CMS’ R&D community.
Together with the broader team, your resulting solutions will create flexibility through automation and rapid infrastructure resource availability for the R&D community.

Where needed, drive 3rd party, internal service and public cloud services providers (request for license quotes, avoid lock-in, biz-case validity versus market offering, make / buy / lease trade-offs )
Give guidance to the infrastructure team’s resources and have them support you for POCs and during incubation phases.
Consult and support the R&D user community on new-technology Infra-structure sizing, architecture and solutions as a function of the user’s targeted use-case (eg functional testing, performance testing, build-chains (CI / CD), financial models...)
