Oslo is currently one of the fastest-growing cities in Europe.

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 Azure 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.

  • Good command of scripting languages (Powershell, Bash,..)
  • ARM templating know-how
  • Travel willingness up to 25%
  • Fluent English speaking skills & the right to work in the EU are required

  • Knowledge of configuration management tools (Puppet, Chef, Ansible)
  • Networking know-how
  • Knowledge of serverless computing
  • Developer background
  • Consulting experience
  • Fluent Norwegian is a plus

As an adaptable learning community, we’re looking for a colleague with certain traits of character:

  • "go-getter" attitude
  • You are able to convince not just only customer but also your fellow developers that your solution is the smartest
  • You love building stuff - as a growth company, we’re continuously developing our practices!
  • it's not a problem if you don't know, the issue is if you don't want to know

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.
