- Maintaining and setting up remote desktop gateway servers in a windows domain in an AWS VPC to enable RDP over HTTPS

- Strong understanding and be able to troubleshoot VPC's (the internal networking details like routing, public private subnets in multiple Availability zones, NAT gateways) - this requires a very thorough knowledge of IP networking)

Decent knowledge of PKI, especially server certificate handling, concepts like wildcard certificates, trust chains, subject alternate names and SNI should be a no-brainer for you, using OpenSSL for certificate creation, TLS/SSL debugging, …

Knowledge of Puppet/Chef/… and related tools are not strictly necessary but someone who can bring in some experience on these technologies would be welcome

Necessary Linux technologies:

- A minimum amount of bash scripting knowledge and common used command line tools

- Command line tools to troubleshoot network communication with tools like ifconfig, curl, dig, netstat, nslookup, openssl, nc (netcat), …

- Docker containers knowledge is a MUST (including docker-compose files, dockerfile creation and maintenance, debugging a running container, … )

- NGINX webserver knowledge - especially acting as reverse proxy, throttling (rate limiting), virtual hosts, TLS (HTTPS) offloading, … and troubleshooting

- IIS configuration and deployment on Windows 2008->2016

Build and deployment pipelines:

- As TeamCity is the tool of choice you should ideally have some knowledge of TeamCity or get quickly up to speed with it

- Setting up deployments based on immutable builds (according to the 12 factor app principle): build once - run everywhere !

- Knowledge of MSBUILD is highly recommended as a lot of legacy software is still written in .NET

- .NET Core 2 knowledge (how it is integrated with docker and the build / staging steps are used)

If you are interested, please do not hesitate to forward to me your updated CV in English and your availability for an appointment.
