We are excited to be working with a global Tier 1 company involved in many leading mission
critical projects. They are highly regarded within the industry and are one of the largest
independent technology & business services firms in the world.


Our client is currently looking for an experienced Cloud Architect to help drive the successful
exploitation of cloud technologies through the delivery of ambitious and novel solutions.

 

This role is focused primarily on the delivery of contemporary and innovative technical
solutions for the most challenging problems of government agencies. Teams work alongside
their customers to help them understand how to exploit technologies to maintain
competitive advantage, and systems are engineered for performance, security, reliability,
and scalability; built with modern CI and CD tooling and techniques.

 

Job role responsibilities:

  • This role offers fantastic opportunities to work on leading edge and bespoke technologies within an interesting and highly rewarding environment.

  • You will work directly with clients and delivery teams to develop high quality technical solutions and designs for multi/hybrid cloud platforms with an emphasis on modern serverless architecture (FaaS).

  • There is a heavy commitment to developing team members and providing excellent learning and development opportunities to ensure that your knowledge and skills keep pace with the evolving technology landscape. The business promotes a culture of innovation, collaboration and ownership where highly motivated self-starters thrive.

  • Some travel to London once every 2 weeks post-COVID may be required, which would be fully expensed. Although we would like candidates to have all the mandatory requirements, we can also consider high quality individuals who meet most of the criteria.


Ideal candidates will probably come from a software DevOps background moving to Cloud Architecture. Required experience includes:

  • Hands-on system engineering experience on cloud platforms using AWS or GCP

  • Designing and developing using Java with code written to a common standard including well-documented code and design documents

  • Comprehensive understanding and experience of implementing CI/CD pipelines using contemporary tooling for version control, automation, and configuration management

  • Using Linux as a deployment platform and day-to-day development environment – e.g., package management, networking configuration etc

  • Able to write, review and assure technical documentation such as HLDs, LLDs, user guides, release notes etc

  • Microservices and containerisation technologies such as Kubernetes, OpenShift and Docker
