AWS Cloud Architect

About the Job

Nordcloud is recruiting a full time AWS Cloud Architect to help accelerate our AWS Consulting business. As an independent cloud-native organisation, our team delivers objective advice, cloud strategy, migration, automation, management, cloud platform capacity resale, and training to our customers.

As one of our AWS Cloud Architects in our London office you will work on projects of varying duration, complexity and technical environments. You will have a chance to work with a variety of high-profile customers from several industries. Day-to-day work can be anything from assistance with customer proposal writing, using best practices to design customer environments, implementing configuration management infrastructure, to taking a step back and giving design recommendations to a technical team or pre-sales activities. 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 looking for cloud architects with a driven, customer focused attitude and potential for quick career progression.

As we have varying opportunities to work internationally, the possibility to travel up to 25% in the UK and other locations in Europe is highly appreciated. 

To be a successful AWS Cloud Architect you should

  • Have a strong background from public cloud environments, migrations and development. You are familiar specially with AWS and have experience in setting up everything from single instances to complex managed services. Be an expert in either the Linux or the Microsoft ecosystem. Be familiar with database technologies (e.g. Postgres, MySQL, CouchDB, MS SQL, DynamoDB).
  • Have strong interest in IaC with Terraform or Cloudformation and automation experience
  • With experience in using and implementing various forms of automation we are looking for experience with such as configuration management (e.g. Puppet, Ansible, Powershell, NixOS) and continuous integration services (e.g. Jenkins, Bamboo, Buildkite).
  • Be very skilled communicator (written and oral) to be able to engage with different stakeholders, including senior customer stakeholders
  • Have an ability to define, document and present end-to-end solutions based on customer need
  • We would highly appreciate it if you know at least one programming language (e.g. Python, Java, C++, Erlang) and have used it preferably for server backend applications. You should also be familiar with common network components (e.g. DNS, routing, firewalls). It would really make us even more interested if you know some IT security and design patterns for cloud architectures.
  • It's great if you already have AWS certifications.

To give you an idea what kind of a person we are looking for you should understand that everyone in the team works directly, hands on, with customers and each of us must be able to explain technical content to people who might be less familiar with 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”. 

Why Nordcloud as 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
