Due to continued phenomenal success, Cloudreach are hiring! This time, we are looking for several Cloud Systems Engineers to be based out of our London office in Farringdon or our central Edinburgh office with views of the castle.​

If you’re passionate about public cloud solutions - either as an existing user or as someone who is keen to learn - get in touch! We’re only interested in those who believe in the value and flexibility that cloud can bring to enterprises.​ Can you stand in front of the CTO of a blue-chip company?​ Can you convince them that cloud is the way to go?​

Why do you want to work with us?​

●   You want to make it happen: While we’re all generally up for a good time, we work hard towards producing tangible results that contribute to the company’s future.​

●   You want to broaden your knowledge of food or drink: We’re in the heart of London, next to Leather Lane market and some of the oldest and best restaurants and pubs in the UK.​ Our sister office, in the Edinburgh, is nestled in the New Town next to the Whiskey Society HQ and plenty of tasty joins on Broughton Street! We regularly go out for lunch and after work as a team.​ And if you’re not up for a wee jaunt to the pub, there’s always beer and juice in the fridge.​

●  You want to be part of a fast growing company where you can make your mark: We have doubled in size every seven months since we started.​ Come and join the ride!

What about the role?​

Cloudreach is looking for capable systems engineers/​administrators with at least 2-3 years relevant experience who are keen to grow their technical and consulting skills in a rapidly expanding company.​

We are looking for engineers who are capable of working directly with clients on customer facing projects to deliver the many benefits of cloud solutions.​ Given the diverse nature of our work you will have a real desire to work with a wide range of technologies and systems.​

You’ll work with friendly and smart peers in the Platforms team, working predominantly on Amazon and Google related deployment projects.​ In some projects you may work as the sole technical resource, in others you’ll work as part of a team.​ You will provide the technical wizardry to complement the commercial and planning skills of a Project Manager you will be paired with.​ Take a look at our employee LinkedIn profiles to see their backgrounds.​

Some work will be on site with customers - predominantly located around your main office location - but we are not a typical consulting organisation so you’ll spend a lot of time in the office as well where you can share knowledge with - and learn from - your colleagues.​
You will be working in the following areas (and more!):

●   Green field development of Amazon Web Services infrastructure (EC2, VPC, etc), i.​e.​ looking at an existing service or data centre and then architecting a more effective solution in Amazon

●  DevOps: Custom system integration work with frameworks such as Chef

●  Technical deployment and consultancy related to Google Apps for Business - for example designing a complex Single Sign On solution

●  Google Apps Script development to build complex workflow solutions

●  Other cloud computing technologies and platforms such as SalesForce and RESTful API integration

●  Opportunity to develop and deploy in-house developed products to our customers

We will train and certify you on Google deployment best practices, and also provide expert assistance to get you up to speed with Amazon Web Services.​ The skills you’ll learn at Cloudreach are in real demand in the market and will be a major asset on your CV (not that you’ll ever want to leave Cloudreach!).​

What are you responsible for?​    

●  Providing systems engineering services to a number of different internal and external customers - potentially taking a lead design role within a small group of engineers

●   Delivering customer migrations to the cloud - predominantly Google Apps and Amazon Web Services, including related scripting and systems integration work

●  Developing your skills across our core business lines and ultimately mentoring graduate systems engineers

What do you need to bring to the table?​

●  First or upper second class honours degree (BSc/​BEng) or Masters equivalent in Informatics, Engineering or Computer Sciences

●  Highly motivated and proactive - your attitude is key.​ Few people we hire are Google or AWS experts - but they all have the drive and knowledge to learn

●  We hire people with different levels of experience - from one year to twenty.​ If you love working with technology, we’ll find a suitable role for you

●  System administration skills and related scripting experience, for example with Python, Perl or Ruby

●   Detailed experience of Internet technologies (mail systems, domain name systems, web services)

●   Virtualisation knowledge and experience (preferred)

●   A good planner and communicator (very good spoken and written English)

●   Excellent numerical and analytical skills

●   Ability to thrive in a fast paced environment.

Even more reasons to work with us!

●  We are voted the No1 Small Company to work for in the UK!!

● If you work hard and play hard you will need a good holiday.​ We offer 25 days, plus an extra day for each full year that you have worked with us (up to a max of 30 days).​ You also get to celebrate being you, with your birthday off

● We provide the best technology for our staff.​ You will get a MacBook Pro, a big screen monitor and a sexy Android device

●  Once per quarter the company gets together to review strategy and to get to know one another.​ Prior to the event you have 24hrs to develop a technical solution of your choice! This can be a product, a process or something that is just damn cool.​ Several ideas have graduated into commercial products

● We firmly believe that everyone should benefit in the success of the company:

○  Annual bonus of 10%​ of base salary based on your personal performance.​ This bonus is uncapped just in case you have that moment of brilliance

○  Share options are awarded on completion of probation as well as part of your annual performance review (for top performers)

●  Catch up with your peers, the Directors and make new friends at “Cloudy Lunch.​” A highlight of the week where we take over a local restaurant for good food and awful puns

● Fresh, contemporary offices located in Central London and Central Edinburgh

● Child care vouchers

● Stakeholder pension with employee and employer contribution

● Cycle to work scheme
