Cloud Architect (AWS/GCP)

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 more 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 AWS/GCP 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.

What to know more about the technologies and projects we work on? Check out our blog.

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, have a strong knowledge of at least two different programming languages (ideally Python and Ruby!)  and you have several years of industry expertise, we would love to hear from you!

Your daily serving includes Linux, Puppet, Chef, Ansible, Python, Ruby, Bash, Powershell, AWS, GCP, Jenkins, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and MongoDB to name but a few tasty bites. 

We don’t expect you to be a cloud guru when you join us, but you must be eager to learn, have the smarts, and develop your skills at pace with the industry. What this means is that within your first six months at Nordcloud, we expect you to be AWS certified, work independently on customer projects, and deliver results meeting the bar. 

As you work directly with customers, social skills and clear communication are a must. Our work language is English but native Dutch is mandatory as per our clients' requirements. 

Curious to see your possible colleagues-to-be?
