About Nordcloud

Founded in 2011, Nordcloud is a European leader in public cloud infrastructure solutions and cloud-native application services. Since 2012 it has completed more than 1000 successful deployments that have helped its enterprise customers reap the full benefits of the cloud, including better security, agility, scalability and reduced costs. With a current turnover of 50 million euros, Nordcloud employs 450+ people in offices around Europe including Helsinki (HQ), Stockholm, Oslo, London, Munich, Amsterdam, Poznań, Copenhagen, Vienna, Malmö and Jyväskylä. We are an AWS Premier Consulting Partner, Google Cloud Platform Strategic Partner and a Microsoft Gold Cloud Partner.

Nordcloud has been awarded to be the World’s number 1 cloud-native Managed Services Partner in the May 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Hyper scaler MSP’s.

We offer a full-time position as an AWS Cloud Architect in our small and highly skilled team in Bjørvika, in the heart of Oslo.

Oslo is currently one of the fastest-growing cities in Europe. Situated between mountain ranges and at the head of the beautiful Oslofjord, the city has everything to offer in terms of outdoor activities. The recent years’ boom in everything from underground music, niche art, tasty microbrewery beers, the vibrant tech community with lots of meet-up groups and several hacker- and maker spaces, means there is always something to do. 

As an AWS Cloud Architect, you’ll find yourself participating in various customer projects, from new infrastructure builds and migrations, to audits and big data. Day-to-day work can be anything from implementing configuration management infrastructure to taking a step back and giving workshops and design recommendations to a technical team. Furthermore, you will become a trusted advisor for high profile enterprise businesses and jointly manage the customer relationship and roadmap with the Nordcloud Sales team. All in all, you’ll have a selection of different ‘hats’ to put on and have the luxury of following customer projects from start to release.

Ideally, you’re bringing the following skills with you:

  • Hands-on experience and in-depth knowledge about Amazon Web Services (Google Cloud and/or Azure is a plus)
  • Customer service attitude
  • A background as Linux/Windows system administrator or backend developer
  • Have a solid understanding of on-premises technologies (e.g. VMware, OpenStack or Hyper-V)
  • Large scale application deployment and management
  • Creating solution architectures for availability, performance and cost
  • Configuration management systems (Ansible or similar) and container technologies (e.g. Kubernetes, Docker )
  • Continuous integration/continuous deployment environments
  • Scripting skills
  • Willingness to travel approximately 25% of your time

All in all, you have a solid engineering/technical background/hands-on experience with conceptualising, strategizing and architecting cloud solutions. And it would also be a plus if you understand security, network, virtualization, load balancer, storage and database.

    To give you an idea what kind of a person we are looking for here is a small story of how we work. We all work directly with customers and each of us must be able to explain technical content to people who might be less familiar with the technology. Working with different people and teams is not a problem for us. To us delivering quality solutions is more important than “just getting the job done”. We don’t either mind travelling through one of the world’s most beautiful countries.
