Cloud Engineer / Home Office / 12+ Month Contract / (AWS or Azure)

I am currently looking for a Cloud Engineer (mid-snr level) who is familiar with AWS and/or Azure. My client is a global organisation, so working from home is OK, but you should also be available on site in Switzerland (Zurich region) one day per week when covid restrictions are relaxed.

This project will last 12+ Months and we are looking for someone who can start in August/September. The hourly rate is flexible depending on experience (reach out to discuss).

As a Cloud Engineer, you will help deliver solutions for divisions going through a technological as well as organisational transformation. Working in a small team, you'll guide our development groups through creating and automating their cloud infrastructure. My client is a multi-cloud company, meaning that you will have the opportunity to apply a diverse mix of tools and services. You will implement best practice and help each of the teams build upon the solutions that you have developed with other groups.

You should have professional experience with:

  • Best practices and patterns in software development
  • Best practices and patterns in cloud native transformation and migration
  • Feature flags, Blue/Green, Canary and Ring release strategies and tools
  • CI/CD both the principles and the experience of setting up a pipeline
  • Containerisation across different platforms, operating systems and CPU types
  • Cloud Native tools and their applicability across different Cloud providers
  • Observability and how it is used to manage MTTR
  • Kubernetes and Kubernetes Operators

You should have a good understanding of:

  • Micro-service and Serverless architectures
  • Private and Public Clouds
  • Cloud provider offerings

It would be good if you had some exposure to:

  • Managing Hybrid and Multi-Cloud environments
  • Global Cloud Optimisation
  • Monetisation of SaaS platforms
  • Site Reliability Engineering
  • Service Meshes

My clients software environment is diverse, consisting of everything from FPGA Firmware in their own hardware devices to Cloud Native SaaS platforms. Some of their software has been in use for 25 years and some is on the very edge of AI/ML and AR/VR research.

Interested? Please send your CV and I will contact you to book a meeting.
