About us

About us

The Public Cloud Portfolio Unit operates on a national and international level, for medium-sized and large companies. With the new Managed Services Public Cloud, we develop, market and operate agile, cloud-native, forward-looking products and services for the digital world. We see ourselves as innovation drivers and make our customers' business fit for the digital future. Our mission: To be successful in tomorrow, we need to think now about the day after tomorrow - and always together with our customers.

The Opportunity: 

In this role you will be a Cloud Engineer in our Customer Cloud Engineering Team.  You will serve as a technical expert and leader in ensuring our customer´s innovative digital solutions get built on reliable, scalable, resilient, and secure AWS cloud infrastructures. Furthermore, you will play a key role in maturing our customer focused Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) practices, policies, and tools, to support our ever-growing micro-service deployments on AWS.

You will provide key leadership to help ensure our infrastructure services meet the demands of our fast-paced, dynamic customers. You bring a deep understanding of cloud native architectures, practices, and tools. With a background in software development in/or systems administration, you are as comfortable writing code in Python or Node.js as you are in Bash. You not only understand what Infrastructure as Code is, but also adhere to the best practices. You have experience in moving a customer from start-up to scale, ensuring the foundation and disciplines get developed as the customer grows. You love solving deep technical challenges and proactively improve on earlier iterations. You look to automate manual operations and cringe at the thought of making changes in a web-based console. You'd rather spend your day in an IDE and terminal than a GUI.

Finally, you have solid experience working with agile product teams to deliver enterprise class services and infrastructure, while also managing operational accountabilities. Above all, you are passionate about solving real problems for real people, and bring a positive attitude surrounding the change you can make in the Team. You build people up, not tear them down!
