Solutions By Design II, LLC (SBD) is seeing a Cloud Engineer/Architect to join a team of Data Management professionals responsible for improving the user community’s experience by modernizing the access to and enhancing the analytics of our client’s Data Repository into a cloud environment. This team will be responsible for replacing the existing platform with a newer, modernized version using business intelligence tools including MicroStrategy, Informatica, web services, R, Python, SSRS, SAS, and other tools as required.

  • Participate in the Planning, Migration and Decommissioning processes.
  • Review the architecture of the repository and identify activities that should be performed prior to migration, during migration, and (potentially) after migration.
  • Provide an assessment of the cloud readiness of the application, including recommendations on how to best move the application from the current data center location into a cloud environment.

  • Describe an approach to testing for migration planning.

  • Validate backup, recovery and disaster recovery procedures and processes in the cloud environment.
  • Validate data backup locations to ensure that data backups are maintained or replicated at a site geographically disparate from the production site such that the loss of one data center does not prohibit recovery of data.

  • Prior experience with Cloud Migrations in AWS, Azure and/or Google Cloud.
  • FedRAMP experience is strongly preferred.
  • AWS, Azure and/or Google Cloud certifications strongly preferred.
