Job Description

Cloud Engineer (Level 2 or Higher)

You'll be a key player in our client's hybrid cloud team where you'll build solutions for AWS cloud integration, cloud management, monitoring and data center automation around platforms that support the world's largest financial enterprises. Their platforms, networks, security architecture and partner integrations present technically challenging scalability and performance problems, so you'll need a strong aptitude for learning new technologies, and an ability to solve complex problems, collaborating with peers across multiple cross-functional teams.


  • Develop, deploy and support self-service tools that enable network, database, application and other engineers to get things done in AWS and within their on premise infrastructure.

  • Setup network, storage and security environments, leveraging an "infrastructure as code" approach using Hashicorp and other open source tools.

  • Design, implement, and test disaster recovery and business continuity architectures.

  • Develop and streamline resource metering and management tools across both AWS and on premise cloud environments.


  • Bachelor's degree or equivalent in computer science, information technology or business information systems or related field.

  • Strong understanding of AWS architecture and services, and experience deploying container and micro-services in both on-prem and AWS environments.

  • Strong understanding and experience with Kubernetes container orchestration.

  • Strong experience with automation tools, primarily Terraform and Ansible. Chef, Puppet or Saltstack experience an asset.

  • Experience as a cloud administrator or software engineer leveraging open source technologies (such as Linux, Yum, and others), automation tools (such as Terraform, Chef, Puppet, Ansible or Saltstack) and scripting or other languages (such as Ruby, Python, Javascript, RESTFul API or Go).

  • Experience with AWS technology stack is a plus (including EC2, Network, VPC, Cloudformation, Cloudtrail, ELB, S3/EBS, RDS, etc). AWS certified engineers will receive maximum consideration.

  • Broad technology background with understanding of VMware server virtualization, Cisco UCS Compute, Database, Storage and Networking.

  • Ability to break down requirements and get things done.

  • Proven ability to work in a cross-functional team and practice open communication both written and verbal.
