Senior Cloud Architect

Summary:

Headline: If you've ever wondered what it's like to work on a platform that affects the way we view the world, then you probably want to keep reading for this one.
Location: Nottingham
Salary: £85,000 - 112,000 + 20% Bonus

There's certainly no shortage of cloud architecture roles these days. With the technology seeing a massive surge of interest over the last few years, everyone is crying out for the heroes who can implement solutions that us mere mortals could never hope to understand.

So, if we're being realistic, what sets those roles apart? Is it the money? The challenge? Company brand? Maybe it's bean bag chairs, an office dog, pool tables, and being able to wear your crocs in the office?

What if it there was a role that had all of that? Well, y'know, they're a bit iffy when it comes to the crocs, but you understood my question. It'd be quite cool right?

With a brand that extends across the globe, it would be fair to say that this is the company that provides the FinTech solutions that power everything else when it comes to FinTech. They create solutions that power the way the entire western world views finance.

They've fully embraced Cloud technologies, and the things that they've achieved (and hope to achieve) will change that even more…but there's a slight problem.

They don't have you.

But why would you join them?

Well, apart from amazing benefits, an incredible salary, and a level of support, progression, and development that is basically unmatched by all others in their market, they can offer you the one thing that really counts: the chance to create something truly unique!

They are one of the only companies in the UK that are utilising and implementing cloud solutions across every major platform at this scale. Whether its AWS, Azure, GCP, or AliCloud, it's safe to say that there's no shortage of things for you to get stuck in to and flex your technical muscles.

The team currently sits at a pretty steady number, but over the next 6-12 months they're looking to add a few more Cloud Engineers in Nottingham, as well as a very friendly and very clever Cloud Architect (you).

Initially, you'll be working on architecting and implementing cloud platforms using data and services that are being migrated from on-prem to cloud. This'll involve a bit of work in terms of landing zones and communicating with the DevSecOps team in order to make sure it goes smoothly, but they've already started to make some headway with this.

Most of their current platforms are built using AWS (85%), with the remainder having a pretty even split between Azure and GCP. They're client and product lead, obviously, so being able to work across all of these services is desirable. It's not hugely important though, so if you've got a preference for one platform, don't let that hold you back.

They're a big organisation, so this may not be the best place for people who want to shy away or hide in the corner. You don't have to be the life of the party, but if you're comfortable in your own skin and don't mind mucking in and explaining things to stakeholders from time to time, you'll be just fine.

There's no ridiculously long list of requirements in order to ensure you're successful, and I'm happy to have a chat about the finer details (I've rambled on already…)

If you'd like to know more, pop your CV over and let's have a chat. It'd be nice to hear from you
