Google Cloud Architect

When you join Nordcloud, you become part of a rapidly growing company where you will set your career on track for outstanding achievement within a company that knows no limits. Our customers are large enterprises seeking to be part of #TheCloudRevolution and to benefit from the ability to innovate faster than ever.

At Nordcloud you'll get the chance to work with leading technologies as we partner with the premier global cloud platform infrastructure providers, including Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, and Microsoft Azure. Currently, we are hiring for a Google Cloud Architect position! 

Your daily work and solutions we build:

As a Google Cloud Architect, you’ll find yourself participating in customer projects from new infrastructure builds and migrations to 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 a position to follow customer projects from start to release. 

What we would like to see:

  • Expert level knowledge of Google Cloud Platform (AWS and/or Azure is a plus).
  • Background as Linux OR Windows system administrator or backend developer would be ideal.
  • Coding/scripting skills (Bash, Python, etc.).
  • Hands-on experience in creating solution architectures, as well as designing and implementing landing zone architectures.
  • Infrastructure as a Code skill (i.e. CDK, Terraform, Deployment Manager, and similar).
  • Experience in building CI/CD pipelines and container technologies (e.g. Docker).
  • At least theoretical knowledge of container orchestration technologies (e.g. Kubernetes, Swarm, or OpenShift).
  • Willingness to experiment with and learn brand-new technologies (e.g. Anthos).
  • Knowledge of on-premises technologies (e.g. VMware, OpenStack, or Hyper-V).
  • Knowledge of security, network, virtualization, load balancers, storage, and databases.
  • Experience or interest in learning more about Big Data / Machine Learning projects is an asset.
  • An active customer-oriented consultancy mindset and pre-sales attitude are a must.

All in all, you have a solid engineering or technical background with hands-on experience in conceptualizing, strategizing, and architecting cloud solutions. As you work with customers, solid social skills are a must. To us delivering quality solutions is more important than just “getting the job done”.
