Azure Cloud Architect

Since 2011, Nordcloud has been on a mission to help people embrace the cloud. To do that we’re looking for experienced Dutch-speaking Cloud Architects to join our world-class team and help our customers gain the maximum benefits of the cloud.

Have you got an appetite for technology?

Our motivation stems from technology and the persistent need to be constantly better and know more. Education and learning are a visible part of our daily life and growth takes place outside the comfort zone. Because of this, we’ve earned the place as the trusted advisors to our customers and community when escorting them on their journey in or to the cloud.

As an Azure Cloud Architect, you’ll find yourself participating in various projects, from new builds and migrations to audits and big data. Your expertise will be appreciated by our sales team who you will assist to create new products and offerings.

All in all, you’ll have a selection of different ‘hats’ and have the luxury of following customer projects from start to release. We are young and vibrant and hope you will be attracted by the hands-on opportunity to be part of shaping our future. You should feel empowered to work in a forward-thinking, problem-solving environment, where people get a lot of freedom to make decisions, are trusted with passion, and always go the extra mile to deliver high quality.

 To be successful in this key role, you should:

  • Have a strong background in the Azure environment, migrations, and development. You are familiar with setting up everything from single instances to complex managed services. You want to be an expert in the Microsoft ecosystem.
  • Have experience in the design and delivery of systems based on Azure IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS offerings, as well as exposure to different architecture models such as all-in and hybrid cloud.
  • Be skilled in Azure DevOps, ARM templates, and administering Active Directory, SQL Server, or IIS products in an automated manner. This could mean PowerShell DSC, SCCM, Chef, Puppet, Team City, Octopus Deploy, or something else! 
  • Be able to automate build/release pipelines and configurations. You write new PowerShell scripts and modules and read and modify existing ones.
  • Already be, or have a keen interest in getting Microsoft Azure Certified and learn about Kubernetes!
  • Fluent English

To give you an idea of what kind of a person we are looking for, you should understand that everyone in the team works directly with customers and each of us must be able to explain technical content to people who might be less familiar with the technology. To us delivering quality solutions is more important than “just getting the job done”. 

Why is Nordcloud your next career move?

    • Interesting public cloud projects and a chance to work with a variety of high-profile customers from several industries
    • Possibility to gather valued certificates and participate in world-class courses and training; choose from various courses to ensure continuous learning with an independent training budget
    • Lots of opportunities to develop your expertise while working together with our leading European Cloud Professionals as well as influencing a growing business
    • We operate as a flat international organization, where exceptional talents can make a real impact
    • Flexibility in working hours and location
