Your daily work and solutions we build:
As a Cloud Architect at Nordcloud you’ll find yourself participating in various customer projects, from new infrastructure builds and migrations to audits and big data.

Your daily serving can include Linux, Puppet, Chef, Ansible, Python, Ruby, Bash, AWS CloudFormation, Terraform, Jenkins, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and MongoDB to name but a few tasty bites.
Furthermore, you will become a trusted advisor for high-profile enterprise businesses and jointly manage the customer relationship and roadmap with the Nordcloud Sales team. All in all, you’ll have a selection of different ‘hats’ to put on and have the luxury of following customer projects from start to release.

- As you work directly with customers, social skills and a customer service attitude are a must.
We have varying opportunities to work internationally e.g. gross Nordics, so there might be travel required in Finland and/or other locations in Europe (subject to covid restrictions).
