Senior Virtual Desktop Engineer

Senior Virtual Desktop Engineer

We are looking for a Senior Virtual Desktop Engineer with strong technical experience to immediately join our team and become a key contributor in delivering and supporting our strategic program to deploy Virtual Desktop globally for Macquarie.

Macquarie is on a transformational journey over the next 6-12 months. The resurgence of Virtual Desktop is being seen as a strategic pillar of the organisation's technology direction. We have a great team already, but we need help! We are building our team overseas, but also need to strengthen our team in Sydney further. We need a thought leader, someone who is passionate and excited about technology, doesn't mind being hands on at times, and someone who wants to be part of a team that is making a huge difference at Macquarie.

The Virtual Desktop team sits within a larger team that supports and enables Macquarie's global business activities by providing technology services across Physical Devices (i.e. laptops/BYOD), Mobility, Desktop Operating System, Application Packaging, Printing, and Remote Access.

In this role you will be responsible for providing design & delivery expertise across the Virtual Desktop platform and will be pivotal to our team successfully delivering our Virtual Desktop service globally. It will require close collaboration with our various internal and external technology and business teams, as well as being customer-obsessed so that Service can provide the best user experience possible.

A background in VMware virtualisation, VDI design, networking, storage in large enterprise environments would be key to be successful in this role, however for the right candidate, we will consider supplemental investment to train you in some/all of these technologies.
Your technical skills/experience should include:
  • deep knowledge of hardware virtualization technologies, preferably VMware
  • experience in design, deployment and management of a VMware Horizon Virtual Desktop and application presentation platform in pooled and/or persistent model
  • experience in but not limited to, VMWare Horizon, VMWare ESX, VMWare vSAN, Citrix XenApp, Powershell, Storage and Networking as it relates to VDI.
  • detailed understanding of VMware data center, pod and cluster architecture with respect to VDI platforms across multiple datacenters
  • Microsoft Desktop SOE Design, SCCM, Active Directory, Group Policies, Application Packaging and deployments not essential but looked upon favourably.

Join us as a Virtual Desktop Engineer within our Devices & Connectivity team and play an integral role in the delivering of the next generation of desktop computing at Macquarie.
