NB: For this role we are only considering engineers already located within the Netherlands as we cannot provide relocation.

Are you a skilled Google cloud engineer looking for your next challenge? Are you experienced with Infrastructure as code (Terraform) and looking to support a company's multi-cloud transition? Do you want to be part of a fast-growing technology company that is making a difference in the energy industry?

My client, a market leader in energy meta data management platforms, is looking for a Cloud Engineer to join their team. The ideal candidate will be a technical self-starter who can help them maintain their systems on Google cloud while supporting the expansion towards Azure.

I'm looking for someone who:

  • Has at least 3 years of experience with cloud computing, specifically with Google Cloud Platform and preferably similar experience with Azure.
  • Is well-versed in Terraform and can provision, update, and manage infrastructure.
  • Is able to help teams to automate their approach to using a cloud environment and move towards more of a platform understanding.
  • Has experience with container orchestration (GKE) and is good at managing containers (Kubernetes).
  • Experience with Pub/Sub or similar is greatly beneficial as it's widely used, although they'd like to make this element more cloud agnostic. Experience with Apache Kafka and/or confluent could be interesting.
  • Is proficient in scripting, either through Bash and/or Python.
  • Has experience with GitLab (or similar) and can help set up CI/CD pipelines.

Who is interested in:

  • Leading the company's multi-cloud transition to Azure while maintaining their existing systems on Google Cloud Platform.
  • Providing guidance to the software engineering team on cloud-related matters.
  • Solving challenges related to product orchestration and cost optimization.
  • Making the system more robust and scalable.

For a company who:

  • Can offer you a base salary of up to €80.000,- per year (including 8% holiday allowance).
  • Offers you 25 holidays with the option to buy more.
  • Has a hybrid working policy with flexible working hours (office in Utrecht).
  • Offers you much more: commute and phone reimbursement, company laptop, pension plan, work-from-home budget, home office budget, learning and development opportunities, and more.
  • Provides commute and WFH allowances, as well as training and development opportunities. Is working with a diverse and open-minded team of international colleagues.

We know we ask a lot but encourage you to apply even if you fit 70% to the role.
