  • Using AWS VPC, Subnets, Routing, Gateways, Peering and VPNs to design robust cloud network architectures

  • Using IAM roles and policies to limit access to resources, or grant temporary access to another AWS service or account
  • Using CloudWatch to design bespoke monitoring and alerting solutions for cloud deployments
  • Designing architectures based on container based platforms (e.g. ECS, EKS, Fargate, OpenShift)
  • Writing infrastructure-as-code (particularly CloudFormation) to define cloud systems
  • Communicating complex cloud architectures to a range of technical and non-technical audiences
  • A desire to continually update, enhance and validate cloud skills, (ideally with a view to pursue cloud certification e.g. AWS Solution Architect)
