Azure Cloud Architect

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Posted: 2020-04-17

Since 2011, Nordcloud has been on a mission to help people embrace the cloud. To do that we're looking for experienced 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 is 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. There are also varying opportunities to work internationally if you have the travel bug! 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. There is great variety for everyone. Our friendly culture and our strong values make for a great place to work. 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.

Willingness to go the extra mile and other things we are looking for in you

If you have an appetite and a deep understanding for cloud infrastructure and its various relations, you catch yourself speaking cloud fluently in your spare time, you have strong knowledge of at least two different programming languages and you have several years of industry expertise, we would love to hear from you!

 To be successful in this key role, you should:

  • Have a strong background from public cloud environment, migrations and development. You are familiar with Azure and have experience in setting up everything from single instances to complex managed services. Be an expert in the Microsoft ecosystem.
  • Have experience in 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, Azure Resource Manager 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 keen in interest in getting Microsoft Azure Certified.
  • As we have varying opportunities to work internationally, possibility to travel up to 25% in the Netherlands and other locations in Europe is highly appreciated.  

To give you an idea 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 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”. Our working language is English but as per our customers' requirements you must be fluent in Dutch!

Fill in the application below and we’ll get back to you in a short notice.
