Cloud Engineer/Architect (AWS, Azure, DevOps)


3 Month initially

As a DevOps Cloud Engineer/Architect (AWS/Azure DevOps) you will be working within an exciting dynamic driven team who will guide and support the vision for large scale organisational and technical change to enable a sustainable DevOps culture to become embedded.

You will demonstrate the ability to perform a range of complex work to develop designs for our key areas, understanding technical handoffs between parts of the organisation and analysing the overall workflow to enable optimisation of our workforce and identification of less efficient processes.


We are seeking a Cloud Engineer with excellent knowledge of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Azure environments to build and run cloud infrastructure at huge scale.
As the Cloud Engineer you will ensure the reliability and scalability of global cloud infrastructure services running in AWS, Azure and supporting applications and products used by millions of users. You will be part of a major new platform programme, with cloud central to its success, providing AWS expertise and recommendations for future improvements to the platform.

Skills required:

  • Excellent knowledge of AWS and Azure environments, preferably large or global systems
  • Exposure to Ansible, Puppet or Chef and other key tools
  • Worked within multiple environments including Linux environment
  • Broad systems and infrastructure knowledge which could include CI tools, containerisation using Docker or Kubernetes

- A Mix of Operations, Software and Architecture

As a cloud engineer, you need to understand the ins and outs of building and running software in the cloud. Although this role typically requires programming and scripting experience, the specific language requirements tend to be a bit more relaxed than in traditional engineering jobs.

What we need:

  • AWS/Azure/Opensource. You should be familiar with at least one of these. If you are well-versed in one stack, that knowledge will translate fairly easily to designing software for the others. Of course, that will involve a bit of learning on the job to do it well.
  • Web Services, API, Rest, RPC. The underlying foundation of cloud architecture is based on APIs and Web Services. You probably already have experience with these types of service patterns and protocols from working on websites, and that knowledge will give you a head start on mastering cloud fundamentals.
  • Virtualisation, Storage & Networking. In the world of cloud computing, these skills can be very useful for designing and operating applications. If you've got these skills, that's a very good thing! At the very least, you should have a strong general programming background, because without it the learning curve may be a bit too steep.
  • Disaster Recovery, High Availability, Fail Over & Redundancy . These are methodologies that are central to operating software in the cloud, and are skills you typically get in an operations role. What if you haven't done operations before? As long as you're familiar with these concepts, the pieces related to cloud architecture can be learned with a little bit of experience and training on the job.
