I have a client who is looking for a Cloud Engineer to join them as we grow our customer-facing Cloud Engineering team. This role is a great opportunity to showcase and share your current skills, learn new ones, as well as embed yourself amongst our wider Engineering team, their practices and ethos.

Paying a competitive salary up to $145,000 per annum, this organisation also offers a host of other benefits including flexible working, a paid day off on your birthday, health insurance and access to paid certifications.

You’ll be mostly working on public cloud customer projects, be it new builds or modernisation efforts, and usually more than one at a time. You’ll be responsible for cloud platform, infrastructure, and engineering during the project phase, as well as providing an escalation point for our Customer Success team.

You’ll be working on leading edge tech like Kubernetes and containers, migrating, refactoring and rearchitecting existing workloads for the cloud and crafting app and infrastructure continuous integration and delivery workflows – just to name a few!
