A global IT organisation who are a leading Cloud platform and solutions company are looking to hire significantly across the cloud sector. This is for a number of roles all around the UK and any background of 2 years+ experience in a Cloud role will be considered. We are looking for self-motivated, enthusiastic people who want to build innovative solutions using cloud technologies. You'll need to have a passion for technology and thrive in team environments. Being able to work with clients and solve problems is a must too.

Are you looking for a role where no two days are the same. Are you someone who thinks lifelong learning and problem solving skills are more than just buzzwords? Do you love working in diverse teams, and find different viewpoints and backgrounds enriching rather than inhibiting? If this sounds like you, then we'd love to hear from you!

But what actually is a Cloud Engineer? We're glad you asked. People interested in this role might come from either a development or an operations background but are eager to broaden their horizons. It's not a pure developer role and it's certainly not a system admin role. Instead, on any given day you might be doing something like:

  • Coding a cloud native application using popular frameworks and microservices architecture
  • Defining and implementing an API
  • Configuring a service on the cloud (e.g. Kafka, MongoDB or Watson Natural Language Processing)
  • Writing a Terraform script to deploy Infrastructure as Code
  • Presenting progress at a weekly client playback

Our projects usually run somewhere between a couple of days and a couple of months. Their purpose is to inspire, to showcase technology and to let our clients experience how they themselves can use our technology to make a difference in their business. Sounds exciting? We certainly think so.

Required Technical and Professional Experience:

To be successful in this role we expect candidates to have:

  • Professional experience and skills in either development or infrastructure:
    • with at least one modern programming language e.g. Java, JavaScript, Python, React,
    • or with automation and DevOps scripting e.g. bash, Terraform, Tekton
  • Hands-on experience with one or more cloud platforms e.g. AWS, Azure, GCP
  • Client facing experience (internal or external) - building strong and collaborative relationships with project sponsors and stakeholders

Preferred Technical and Professional Experience:

Bonus points for:

  • Track record of work experience using Agile principles and best practices
  • Industry experience e.g. financial services, retail, industrial
  • Experience following Test Driven Development (TDD) practices
  • Experience building and utilising APIs e.g. RESTful
  • Design and implement infrastructure as code environments e.g. using Terraform, Tekton
  • Experience of containerisation e.g. Docker, Kubernetes, OpenShift
  • Cloud certifications
