Leading Azure team in the UK by Harry Azariah

Life at Nordcloud

Harry Azariah joined UK Azure team almost 1,5 years ago as Senior Cloud Architect, and was quickly promoted to lead the local Azure team. Here’s his Nordcloudian story. Enjoy!

 

1. Where are you from and how did you end up at Nordcloud?

 

I’ve lived in South London my whole life. I had been following Nordcloud for couple of years and then my ex colleague who had joined Nordcloud was talking about how great it was and he invited me for a chat with the team.
After the meeting, I was really interested in joining and contributing to the success and the vision of the company.

 

2. What is your role and core competence?

 

I am the Azure team lead in the UK; I have come originally from an infrastructure background but have been working with Azure for the past four years. Doing everything from solutions down to implementation.
My role in the team is to ensure quality in all UK lead Azure engagements and to build a strong team culture through social events and group activities.

 

3. What do you like most about working at Nordcloud?

 

I like our dynamic, young, modern thinking – we build processes in a new way compared to big consultancies and system integrators etc. I also like our general flexibility and that we are not managed from top down; everybody can contribute and influence.

 

4. What’s your favourite thing with public cloud?

 

Constant change, always things to learn and new stuff to play with.

 

5. What do you do outside work?

 

Socialising, watching sports, occasionally playing sports. I’m also a massive foodie so naturally cooking and eating are too of my favourite past times.

 

6. Best Nordcloudian memory?

 

I have a lot of good (and fun) memories from our social team evenings (Christmas party, leaving or welcoming parties etc).
