GCP Architect

London, Manchester, United Kingdom
Full-Time

GCP Architect

As a GCP Cloud Architect, you’ll find yourself participating in customer projects, from new infrastructure builds and migrations, and big data. Day-to-day hands-on work can be from implementing CM 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 enterprises and jointly manage the customer relationship and roadmap with the Nordcloud Sales team. All in all, you’ll have the position to follow customer projects from start to release.

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

  • Public cloud platform expert knowledge, especially Google Cloud Platform (AWS and/ or Azure is a plus).
  • A background as Linux/Windows system administrator or backend development.
  • Have an understanding of on-premises technologies (e.g. VMware, OpenStack, or Hyper-V).
  • Creating solution architectures.
  • Configuration management systems (e.g. Ansible, Chef, Puppet, or similar).
  • Container technologies (e.g. Kubernetes, Mesosphere, Docker Swarm).
  • CI/CD environments.
  • Would be a plus if you already understand security, network, virtualization, load balancing, storage, and database.
  • All in all, you should have a solid engineering/technical background/hands-on experience with conceptualizing, strategizing, and architecting cloud solutions. As you work directly with customers, social skills and a customer service attitude are a must.
