The focus of your role

Major banks and insurance companies are outsourcing transformation programmes on a regular basis to Capgemini.

  • Familiarity with Azure Cloud Solutions / Azure DevOps and architectures (Windows VMs, Web Apps, SQL Database, Document Store, BI stack, Virtual Network, Azure AD)
  • Good understanding of CloudFormation (or similar ‘Infrastructure as Code’ technologies)
