Cloud Architect / Specialist (Google Cloud Platform)
Our vision is to be the leading architects of the front line in Cloud Services in the Nordics.
We help our customers build innovative digital services based on Google Cloud Platform with many years of experience in cloud and DevOps expertise.
Now we want to widen our cloud expertise and invite you, Google Cloud Platform professional, to join our team of Makers of sustainable future!
We are looking for you to build, maintain and develop further new cloud services for a wide range of different kind of clients.
How is this role like - what are the pros?
Building service entities based on GCP architectures takes shape from definition to design, and all the way to development and deployment. In this role of Cloud Architect/Specialist, your purpose is to work closely in the core of both technology and our clients' business. By utilizing your skillset around GCP, you can seamlessly add value to our customers by bringing thoughts and ideas on how our customers can benefit from cloud solutions in the best possible way.
We want to address that we are dealing with major players in the Finnish business market in our client relations. We are building big and business-critical solutions and services for our clients. This means working as a GCP professional in cloud architecture at Knowit; you have all the chances to utilize all your capabilities and skills with modern and the newest GCP technologies, try new things to develop working in the projects and choose your path to develop your own professional skills to the wanted direction.
In co-operation with our clients, we are building business services with cloud-native tools, and the ultimate goal is to innovate and build efficient services. This means that acting in the role of Cloud Architect / Specialist is not outside the business logic, understanding the whole entity is key to success in this role.
What are the options, nuances and requirements in this role?
Since GCP is still a rising star in our cloud portfolio, we hope that you are willing and capable to sometimes widen your work field and participate in projects on top of other clouds (AWS and Azure) or platforms - or why not do some software development - depending on your other core skills and interests.
As a GCP Architect/Specialist, we expect that you will be able to communicate fluently with people in different roles in both Finnish and English and have an inherent interest in grasping the technical side of GCP as well. All our cloud professionals' common thing is that they can execute "hands-on" technical work in the projects when needed. And this aspect is something that we also expect from you.
From the skills and professionality point of view, there are different priorities, in which your core skills may be. These nuances and directions of your interest can guide and define your role as a GCP Architect / Specialist in our team:
- Several years of experience in some other cloud platform or the traditional IT-infrastructure and also experience in building the GCP cloud services. This means you are interested in planning and designing architectures and/or being the strong builder and executioner of these architectures.
- DevOps mindset; You master modern ways of setting things up with native tools and code, and you find a way to automate everything, from infrastructure to business logic.
- Code aspect; application development on top of GCP platform. You can understand the code and speak the same language as the software developers, but sometimes you might also go one step further than just planning, an actually do the implementations.
If some of these, or maybe all, is your core skill - we really would like to have you in our team!
