  • Becoming a trusted advisor for high-profile enterprise businesses and jointly managing the customer relationship and roadmap with the Nordcloud Sales team
  • All in all, you’ll have the position to follow customer projects from inception to release.

    As we have varying opportunities to work internationally, some readiness to travel in Norway and other locations in Europe is required.

    • Hands-on experience with implementation using network, security, storage, and database services with at least one Cloud Provider
      • You know your way around the building blocks of AWS
    • Hands-on experience with automation and use of Infrastructure-as-Code tools (like Terraform, CloudFormation, or similar)

      • You use scripting to automate and create glue code between services
    • Experience in communicating, designing, and guiding the implementations of cloud solutions
      • We favor clear-mindedness, curiosity, and attention to detail over extensive but messy knowledge
    • Fluent communication skills in both English and Norwegian

    Your super-powers (we’d consider any of these as a big plus):

    • Understanding of on-premises technologies (like VMware, OpenStack, or Hyper-V)
    • Knowledge of container technologies (Kubernetes, ECS, Docker)
    • Experience in building CI/CD pipelines
    • Knowledge of configuration management systems (e.g. Ansible, Chef, Puppet, or similar)
    • Experience in backend programming with languages like (Java, Go, or similar)

      All in all, you should have a solid engineering/technical background/hands-on experience with conceptualizing, strategizing, and architecting cloud solutions. As you work directly with customers, social skills and a customer service attitude are a must.

      If you don’t meet all of the desired criteria, but still fit most of the requirements, we encourage you to apply anyway. Let’s find out together if we are a good fit for each other!
