Additional Information Working on application migration from on prem to cloud. We have been doing a lot of proof of concepts/vendor selection. We should have a blue print soon to start building these new enviornments in AWS. Same time we still have to support existing systems. The applications that we are supporting datawharehouse and big data framework. This dept is data platforms are supporting stores and respositories used by different business units (ESPN, PARKS, Coroporate Proper). Preferences on tech stack- Languages: Python is the most critical and biggest advantage. Containerization: Open on this one as it is more challenging as we are dealing with a lot of data, within massive structures- large volumes of data. Currently we use Apache- Hadoop, HIVE, to support this data. Ultimate destination is being reviewed and architected, while we envision contanerization, it is open and is not major. Configuration management more inclined CHEF. In our big data environment Terrfeform too much. So focus on Chef, but still a plus if they have Terreform as it is a good orchestration in configuration management. Integration tool: Jenkins. UNIX/LINUX- we are primarly Linux so focus here. Very small windows population so it would be good to have both, but Linux is key. Strictly contract at this time, but will depend on business needs and how FY19 changes that. Lets look at local, but we are open for a solid person and hire via blue jeans ONLY if they can relocate themselves quickly and are seriuous.
